Papers & Citation#
Use of AbacusSummit should cite at least the following two papers:
AbacusSummit: a massive set of high-accuracy, high-resolution N-body simulations, Maksimova et al. (2021) (describes the simulation suite), and
The abacus cosmological N-body code, Garrison et al. (2021) (describes the code).
Users of the AbacusSummit CompaSO halo catalogs (which will be most AbacusSummit users) should additionally cite:
CompaSO: A new halo finder for competitive assignment to spherical overdensities, Hadzhiyska et al. (2021) (the CompaSO group finding method)
Users of the AbacusSummit halo light cone catalogs should cite:
The halo light cone catalogues of AbacusSummit, Hadzhiyska et al. (2021) (the generation of halo catalogs on the light cone)
Users of the AbacusSummit merger trees should cite:
Constructing high-fidelity halo merger trees in abacussummit, Bose et al. (2022) (the merger tree method)
Users of the AbacusHOD module (AbacusHOD) should cite:
AbacusHOD: a highly efficient extended multitracer HOD framework and its application to BOSS and eBOSS data, Yuan et al. (2021)
Additional citations of Abacus (which might be used when a work goes beyond just using AbacusSummit data products and is discussing the Abacus code itself) are:
A high-fidelity realization of the Euclid code comparison N-body simulation with ABACUS, Garrison et al. (2019) (performance and accuracy of Abacus on the Euclid code comparison simulation, Schneider et al. (2016))
The Abacus Cosmos: A suite of cosmological N-body simulations, Garrison et al. (2018) (an early suite of 125 simulations from 40 cosmologies, https://lgarrison.github.io/AbacusCosmos/),
Improving initial conditions for cosmological N-body simulations, Garrison et al. (2016) (detailing the initial conditions method)
A fast N-body scheme for computational cosmology, Metchnik (2009) (the inception of the mathematical method for the force solver).
Other Abacus citations may be requested as we publish more of the numerical methods.
A related series of papers investigating the accuracy of Abacus and N-body simulations in general using scale-free simulations may be of interest as well:
Accuracy of power spectra in dissipationless cosmological simulations, Maleubre et al. (2022) (likewise assesses the accuracy of power spectra)
Self-similarity of k-nearest neighbour distributions in scale-free simulations, Garrison, Abel, and Eisenstein (2021)
Good and proper: self-similarity of N-body simulations with proper force softening, Garrison et al. (2021) (validates the force softening scheme using scale-free simulations)
Quantifying resolution in cosmological N-body simulations using self-similarity, Joyce et al. (2021) (describes accuracy tests using scale-free simulations)
