In science:

In order to do this, there exist prescriptions based on the study of samples of dark matter halos extracted from high-resolution Gaussian cosmological simulations (Navarro, Frenk, & White 1996; Bullock et al. 2001; Eke, Navarro, & Steinmetz 2001; Dolag et al. 2004; Gao et al. 2008).
Cosmic shear statistics in cosmologies with non-Gaussian initial conditions
As noted by Huffenberger & Seljak (2003), in order for the first approach to reproduce numerica lly simulated spectra, the amplitude of the concentration-mass relation adopted should drop with redshift more steeply than predicted by both the Bullock et al. (2001) and Eke, Navarro, & Steinmetz (2001) prescriptions.
Cosmic shear statistics in cosmologies with non-Gaussian initial conditions
Massive disks can then be rebuilt from gas deposited in a gas-rich (ma jor) merger (Hammer et al. 2009; Robertson & Bullock 2009; Yang et al. 2009) supported by the additional accretion of cold gas (Dekel & Birnboim 2006).

Predictions from Bullock et al. (2001), Gentile et al. (2007), and Neto et al. (2007, who analyzed the Millennium simulation) are also fairly similar to the Duffy et al. (2008) predictions despite concerns about each.

Subsequently, James Bullock and Risa Wechsler improved our understanding of halo evolution in their dissertation research with me, which included analyzing thousands of dark matter halos in a high-resolution dissipationless cosmological simulation by Anatoly Klypin and Andrey Kravtsov.
Summary talk: How serious are the problems faced by CDM: cusps, thin disks, and halo substructure
Ciardi, Ferrara, & White 2003), but a tilted model with σ8 = 0.7 has too little early star formation to produce the observed optical depth unless there is some sort of exotic ionization (Somerville, Bullock, & Livio 2003).
Summary talk: How serious are the problems faced by CDM: cusps, thin disks, and halo substructure
But for ΛCDM the discrepancy arises only for satellites smaller than LMC and SMC, and small satellites are expected to form stars very inefficiently (Bullock, Kravtsov, & Weinberg 2000, Somerville 2002, Benson et al.
Summary talk: How serious are the problems faced by CDM: cusps, thin disks, and halo substructure
However, the gas infall might also occur in fragmented and dense colder gas clouds (Maller & Bullock 2004), or the gas accretion could be continuous, and favor secular evolution.
Secular Evolution of Galaxies
The theorists, of course, reminded us that they thought this all along, but it is gratifying to see that high-resolution simulations are now being carried out to compare this scenario in detail with observed galaxies (Bullock, Governato, Sommer–Larsen).
