Description

I will describe recent progress in structure formation and galaxy formation simulations. I will demonstrate that recent large-scale simulations are able to reproduce the observed galaxy population on large scales. Based on those simulations I will then present results on the dark matter distribution in galaxies and discuss implications for dark matter detection experiments. At the end of my talk I will also present recent results on non-CDM simulations focusing on self-interacting dark matter models.
