Papers & Citation


Use of AbacusSummit should cite Maksimova et al. (2021) for the simulation suite; Garrison et al. (2021), Garrison et al. (2019), and Garrison et al. (2018) for the Abacus code; and Metchnik (2009) for the initial method. Applications using the CompaSO halos should cite Hadzhiyska et al. (2021) for that method; those using the AbacusSummit halo light cone catalogues should cite Hadzhiyska et al. (2021); and those using the AbacusSummit halo merger trees should cite Bose et al. Other citations may be requested as we publish more of the numerical methods.

AbacusSummit is described in Maksimova et al. (2021, MNRAS, 508, 4017). The Abacus N-body code is described in Garrison et al. (2021, MNRAS, 508, 575) and Garrison et al. (2019, MNRAS, 485, 3370), where we detail its performance on the Schneider et al. (2016, JCAP) code comparison simulation, and in Garrison et al. (2018, ApJS, 236, 43), which released an early suite of 125 simulations from 40 cosmologies (

Garrison et al. (2016, MNRAS, 461, 4125) describes our initial condition methods. Hadzhiyska et al. (2021, MNRAS) describes the CompaSO group finding method. Hadzhiyska et al. (2021, MNRAS) documents the method for generating light cones on the fly in AbacusSummit; Bose et al. describes the procedure for generating high-fidelity halo merger trees from AbacusSummit. The AbacusHOD model is presented in Yuan et al.

Pinto et al. (in prep) will describe the Abacus far-field method. Using scale-free simulations, Joyce et al. (2021, MNRAS, 501, 5051) describes accuracy tests, and Garrison et al. (2021, MNRAS, 504, 3550) validates the force softening scheme.
