ELVIS: Exploring the Local Volume In Simulations


ELVIS is a suite of high-resolution, cosmological zoom-in simulations. The suite currently contains 48 halos, each with up to 15 million particles within the virial radius and 53 million particles within an uncontaminated sphere centered on each halo. Half of these halos exist in Local Group-like configurations, chosen to mimic the Milky Way and Andromeda in mass and phase space configuration. This website provides public access to the data, high resolution visualizations of the host halos, links to the publications using ELVIS data, and information about the people involved in the ELVIS simulations.
