Welcome!

The E-MOSAICS project is a suite of galaxy formation simulations run with the EAGLE model that include the MOSAICS semi-analytic model for star cluster formation and evolution. These are the first simulations to self-consistently model the formation and evolution of the entire star cluster population and their host galaxy through cosmic history in fully cosmological, hydrodynamical simulations of galaxy formation. The project currently includes zoom-in simulations of Milky Way-like galaxies, and will soon be extended to galaxy groups and massive galaxy clusters. The primary goal of the project is to test whether models based on the formation and evolution of young stellar clusters can describe the populations of globular clusters observed around galaxies today.
