The Effect of Major Mergers on Age and Metallicity Across the Fundamental Plane
In both SAMs, stellar population age increases with circular velocity and decreases with radius.
The Effect of Major Mergers on Age and Metallicity Across the Fundamental Plane
Both of the SAMs do a better job of reproducing observed trends through, as opposed to across, the FP.
The Effect of Major Mergers on Age and Metallicity Across the Fundamental Plane
In both SAMs, metallicity increases with circular velocity but is nearly independent of radius.
The Effect of Major Mergers on Age and Metallicity Across the Fundamental Plane
However, both SAMs produce a flat age-mass relation, in disagreement with observations.
The Effect of Major Mergers on Age and Metallicity Across the Fundamental Plane
Implementing the model directly within SAMs will reproduce the observed abundances, but this will require the model to be expanded to predict the velocity dispersion and radius after minor and mixed-morphology mergers.
The Effect of Major Mergers on Age and Metallicity Across the Fundamental Plane
However, the current generation of SAMs is not equipped to simulate such events (Hirschmann et al. 2011).
The Effect of Major Mergers on Age and Metallicity Across the Fundamental Plane
In the SAMs and the observations, stellar population age increases with velocity dispersion, but the simulated galaxies have a further dependence on radius.
The Effect of Major Mergers on Age and Metallicity Across the Fundamental Plane
Although both SAMs show offsets such that galaxies that merge at higher redshifts have higher gas fractions and older ages at redshift 0.0, the overall slopes of the relations do not vary with redshift.

Stability patterns in representation theory
Both semi-analytical models (SAM) and numerical simulations (NS) have to rely on essentially the same recipes when they boil down to the star formation and feedback processes, dust and – to a lesser extent – stellar populations.
