"New Insights on Galaxy Formation from Comparing Simulations and Observations" - I will start by summarizing new results from analysis of cosmic large scale structure simulations, including the possibility that the star formation rate of many star-forming galaxies reflects their dark matter halo's mass accretion rate. I will then describe successes and challenges of high-resolution hydrodynamic galaxy simulations in trying to understand the Hubble Space Telescope observations of galaxies during the period of most vigorous star formation (redshifts 1 to 3, "Cosmic High Noon").
