Fundamental metallicity relations in the EAGLE simulation

The study of the chemical enrichment of galaxies and its relation with other global properties of these systems, such as total stellar mass or star formation rate, can provide important constraints on galaxy formation models. In particular, over the last decades, different research projects have focused on the analysis of the mass-metallicity relation (MZR) and its evolution with redshift. In this work, we analyse the MZR since redshift z=3 by using the EAGLE (Evolution and Assembly of GaLaxies and their Environments) simulations. These results are compared with previous findings obtained by using GIMIC (Galaxies-Intergalactic Medium Interaction Calculation) suite of cosmological simulations (De Rossi et al. 2015).
