Welcome to the documentation for CAMEL-SAM!

CAMELS-SAM is the newest and third ‘hump’ of the CAMELS project: https://camels.readthedocs.io/en/latest/index.html.

Like CAMELS, CAMELS-SAM is made up of more than 1,000 simulation products and galaxy catalogs for machine learning, covering a broad parameter space of cosmology and astrophysics. Unlike CAMELS, CAMELS-SAM span a periodic volume of \((100~h^{-1}{\rm Mpc})^3\) over 100 N-body only snaphots, and uses the Santa Cruz semianalytic model (SC-SAM) of galaxy formation and evolution.

See the Description of Simulations section for complete details about the suite, including the process for Data Access. There are many various simulation Data Products available, as well as a guide for Using the SC-SAM catalogs.


Slicing through the SAM galaxies in simulation 11–look at that structure!


And now simulation 19, with very different cosmology!
