Below we list the unit and Hubble constant conventions assumed in TAO. The use of little h in particular can differ significantly between the theory and observational communities (and even within a community) and care must always be taken (Croton 2013). Unless otherwise stated:

  • Masses adopt 1010 h-1 Msun
  • Positions adopt h-1 Mpc and are in co-moving coordinates
  • Sizes adopt h-1 Mpc  and are in physical coordinates
  • Velocities adopt km s-1 and are in physical coordinates
  • Star formation rates adopt Msun yr−1 
  • Heating and cooling rates are in units of log10 erg s-1
  • Photometric magnitudes are calculated assuming the h value of the dark matter simulation used to produce the mock catalogue
