In this thesis, radial surface densities of S⁴G disk galaxies are compared against radial surface densities of Illustris’ simulated galaxies. Illustris doesn’t provide radial surface density profiles directly, but they can be obtained indirectly from the simulation data. For this I developed a program, that processes the raw data and outputs radial surface densities.
