Abstract

In astronomy, one of the major goals is to put tighter constraints on parameters in the Lambda-CDM
model, which is currently the standard model describing the evolution of the Universe after the Big
Bang. One way to work towards this goal is to estimate how galaxy structure and morphology evolve;
we can then compare what we observe with rates predicted by the standard model via simulation.
