Denizens of the Low Surface Brightness Universe

Although low surface brightness galaxies make up a significant fraction of the galaxy population, it is only within the last few years that they have been studied in large numbers.Consequently, the methods by which they form and evolve, as well as the extent to which these processes fit within the commonly accepted paradigms of galaxy evolution and osmology, lack a consensus. In this talk, I will use the state-of-the-art cosmological simulation Romulus25 to examine the properties of different field populations of low surface brightness galaxies, including ultra-diffuse galaxies. I will demonstrate that our simulated galaxies match observations and discuss their formation and evolution.
