Extended Data Fig. 11: Quenching directionality in IllustrisTNG.

From: Anisotropic satellite galaxy quenching modulated by black hole activity

Extended Data Fig. 11

a, The number of TNG100 satellites in each orientation bin, depending on whether they are star-forming (blue symbols), quenched in their z ≈ 0 host halo (green), were pre-processed and quenched in a different halo (orange), or quenched as central galaxies (red). The last two groups (red and orange symbols) are sensitive to large-scale structure effects, but correspond only to a small fraction of the total satellite population. b, The fraction of quiescent satellites as a function of orientation is shown but only for those satellites that quenched in their z ≈ 0 host halo (green symbols). The amplitude of this modulation mimics that measured for all IllustrisTNG satellites (grey-shaded area and black line).
