Zero baryonic mass in host galaxy of BH provided in BH mergers file

Hi,

I'm trying to link the black hole information provided in the supplementary data catalogue (the Blackhole mergers catalogue) to their host subhalos.
More specifically, I'm trying to find the total stellar and gaseous mass in the host subhalo of a BH with an unique BH ID. Here is the code I'm using:

 def map_particle_index_to_parent_subhalo_index(p_index, snap_n, flagFuzz=True):
     """ If flagFuzz is true, then the return has value -1 if the particle is located in the FoF fuzz (outside any subhalo)."""
     basePath = 'TNG50_3'
     gName = 'Subhalo'
     ptType = 5

     # load
     with h5py.File(il.groupcat.offsetPath(basePath,snap_n),'r') as f:
             gcOffsetsType = f['Subhalo/SnapByType'][:,ptType]

     gcLenType = il.groupcat.loadSubhalos(basePath, snap_n, 'SubhaloLenType')
     gcLenType = gcLenType[:,ptType]

     # find largest offset which is not past p_index
     val = np.searchsorted(gcOffsetsType-1,p_index)
     val = np.array([val - 1])
     val = val.astype('int32')

     if flagFuzz:
             gcOffsetsMax = gcOffsetsType + gcLenType - 1
             ww = np.where(p_index > gcOffsetsMax[val])[0]

             if len(ww):
                     val[ww] = -1

     return val

 snap_code=50
 galaxy_index=(map_particle_index_to_parent_subhalo_index(BH_ID, snap_code,flagFuzz=False))
 galaxy_info=loadSingle(basePath, snap_code, haloID=-1,
 subhaloID=galaxy_index[0])

This code works, but the subgroup information of the host galaxy shows that all partType mass expect for the DM are zero, even the total BH mass contained in the Subhalo is zero, which is certainly strange. I tried a bunch of BH IDs provided in the BH merger hdf5 file, and all corresponding host subhalos have zero gas and stellar mass. Would you please help me with thisproblem? Thank you very much for you time and consideration!

Best,

Lily

Hi,

Can you post a specific BH_ID example?

Kunyang Li

Sure Dylan,

The BH IDs are the 'id_out' entry of blackhole_mergers.hdf5 file. Here is a part of BH IDs I'm using:

[100157484456, 100157495621, 100010651324, 100087222181, 100159298986, 100159492206, 100157847522, 100157865909, 100161636519, 100160508662, 100160227792, 100158291578, 100161987198, 100165561419, 100160227792, 100159708953, 100164247873, 100010972940, 100158053590, 100160804726, 100163202998, 100158914661, 100159492206, 100158291578, 100167914220, 100157971333, 100163145433, 100158176518, 100161785880, 100159449680, 100160880042, 100163799994, 100167905690, 100161660136, 100159053241, 100164248374, 100162406853, 100162209985, 100161369783, 100164528698, 100169857981, 100157865909, 100164583442, 100176340045, 100162865424, 100169741132, 100075415860, 100166395619, 100167003951, 100167376926, 100175473208, 100162577087, 100169581414, 100159053241, 100159782054, 100169271209, 100162209985, 100164583442, 100169070885, 100168454723, 100157859013, 100169962254, 100166827573, 100159492206, 100158176518, 100161501424, 100168723333, 100168814373, 100162506794, 100162732260, 100075415860, 100162865424, 100169857981, 100176732991, 100163045499, 100161660136, 100169857981, 100170795858, 100175572492, 100172050487]

Thank you,

The first ID 100157484456 does not exist for any BH for TNG50-3 at snapshot 50. Are you sure this is for this run and snapshot?

Kunyang Li
  • 23 Mar

Sorry, the snap index corresponding to the BH ID list is here:

[9, 12, 13, 14, 14, 15, 15, 15, 16, 16, 16, 16, 17, 17, 17, 17, 18, 18, 18, 18, 18, 18, 18, 19, 19, 19, 19, 19, 19, 19, 19, 19, 19, 19, 19, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 21, 21, 21, 21, 21, 21, 21, 21, 22, 22, 22, 22, 22, 22, 22, 22, 22, 22, 22, 22, 22, 22, 22, 22, 22, 22, 22, 23, 23, 23, 23, 23, 23, 23, 23]

The first ID 100157484456 is in the snapshot 9.

Dylan Nelson

I find that black hole in subhalo ID 25, which has SubhaloLenType = [4671, 7569, 0, 0, 981, 1]. Does your code above agree? Seems ok.

Kunyang Li
  • 23 Mar

No, my code above gives me a subhalo ID of 71900. Would you share your code with which you find 25? Thank you very much! I really appreciate your help!

Dylan Nelson
  • 23 Mar

The code does work fine I believe, p_index = 3 for that BH.

Kunyang Li
  • 23 Mar

I thought p_index =100157484456 for the first BH? Why 3?

Dylan Nelson
  • 23 Mar

Yes I see, for particles "ID" and "index" are definitely different. "ID" always refers to ParticleIDs field, which are generally enormously large numbers.

But TNG50-3 at snap 9 has only 38 black holes in total, so the particle indices range from 0-37.

(The function you have maps particle indices to subhalo indices, although you could change it to map particle IDs to subhalo indices).

Kunyang Li
  • 23 Mar

Ah, I see. Do you know how to convert ParticleIDs into BH index (0-37)? Or is it easier to revise the function? Thank you!

Dylan Nelson
  • 23 Mar

You just need to load PartType5/ParticleIDs and find the indices of that array corresponding to the ID(s) you want. You can use numpy where, in1d, search_sorted, or other.

Kunyang Li
  • 23 Mar

Okay I see, thanks. Just to make sure I get this correctly, if I matched an ID in PartType5/ParticleIDs array of the third chunk of a snapshot, is the ID's index equals to len(chunk0)+len(chunk1)+len(chunk2)+the index found in chunk3? Thanks a lot!

Dylan Nelson
  • 23 Mar

Yes that's true, because p_index above is a "global" index, i.e. having combined all the chunks.

Since there are so few BHs ever, it makes sense to load all their IDs with the usual function (ignoring which chunk they came from), then make the ID->index mapping.

Kunyang Li

Okay, got it! Thank you very much! I really appreciate your help Dylan! Have a wonderful day!

Best,

Lily
