“The NIHAO Project:
How AGN feedback affects scaling relations"

The NIHAO project (Numerical Investigation of a Hundred Astrophysical Objects) is a set of 100 cosmological high resolution zoom-in simulations of galaxies, whose halos range from dwarf to Milky Way masses. I will present our current work to include black hole formation, accretion and AGN feedback into our simulations and to extend their mass range from Milky Way to elliptical masses. I will furthermore show how NIHAO compares with various scaling relations known from observations, and how AGN feedback affects these scaling relations, especially black hole scaling relations.
