For any of the strategies discussed here, the role of the parameter P opmax has to be conveniently downsized.
Random deaths in a computational model for age-structured populations
Indeed, the downsizing of MOSFETs requires a reduction of the thickness of the gate oxide layer.
Broad distribution effects in sums of lognormal random variables
Our galaxy models run with SN feedback also reproduce the observed “downsizing” of field galaxies (Cowie et al. 1996; MacArthur et al. 2004): galaxies with a less massive stellar component are also younger.
Forming Disk Galaxies in Lambda CDM Simulations
This result supports models that predict anti-biasing of star forming galaxies at low redshift, and brings an additional clue to the downsizing of star formation at z < 1.
Clustering Properties of restframe UV selected galaxies I: the correlation length derived from GALEX data in the local Universe
This mass evolution, as well as the bias evolution can be interpreted as additional evidence for the “downsizing” scenario of star formation, though it applies here to the mass of the underlying halo rather than to the baryonic mass.
Clustering Properties of restframe UV selected galaxies I: the correlation length derived from GALEX data in the local Universe
This result is in agreement with the “downsizing” scenario.
Clustering Properties of restframe UV selected galaxies I: the correlation length derived from GALEX data in the local Universe
This is directly related to the downsizing of galaxy formation (Cattaneo et al., in preparation).
Is AGN feedback necessary to form red elliptical galaxies?
The rising trend with mass has been described as the “downsizing” of galaxy formation.
Galaxies in a Simulated $\Lambda$CDM Universe II: Observable Properties and Constraints on Feedback
However, the global behaviour of star formation and stellar mass as a function of redshift is in reasonable agreement with direct observations, and the overall “downsizing” picture inferred from this dataset has been confirmed by many previous studies.
Galaxies in a Simulated $\Lambda$CDM Universe II: Observable Properties and Constraints on Feedback
Such a scenario is a natural consequence of hierarchical halo and galaxy formation and this “downsizing” effect is ubiquitous in both cosmological simulations (Dave 2006) and SAMs of galaxy formation (De Lucia & Blaizot 2007).
Galaxies in a Simulated $\Lambda$CDM Universe II: Observable Properties and Constraints on Feedback
This failure owes to cosmic “downsizing”, where most of the massive galaxies have already formed most of their stellar mass in smaller ob jects at high redshift, and these smaller systems accreted their mass through cold mode accretion.
Galaxies in a Simulated $\Lambda$CDM Universe II: Observable Properties and Constraints on Feedback
Such evolution appears more substantial for less luminous systems, and is possibly the low-redshift tail of the downsizing in star-formation, AGN activity and supermassive black hole build-up observed in higher redshift surveys.
Active Galaxies in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey II: galaxy and activity evolution
AGN or QSO activity is often invoked to explain the origin of red-dead galaxies in the local Universe and the downsizing effect (massive galaxies formed their stars first, see e.g.
Quasar induced galaxy formation: a new paradigm ?
Hence the downsizing in star formation would be a consequence of the downsizing of active nuclei (see e.g.
Quasar induced galaxy formation: a new paradigm ?
Whilst early measurements of the X-ray AGN LF by Boyle et al. (1993) showed evidence that evolution was following the standard PLE model, more recent results have also reported the AGN downsizing.
