Abstract

The paper ‘The many lives of active galactic nuclei: cooling flows, black holes and the luminosities and colours of galaxies’, was published in Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc. 365, 11–28 (2006).

In preparing the script to plot the Tully—Fisher relation in Fig. 6 of Croton et al. (2006), we inadvertently loaded the incorrect column from our data base, with the result that the proxy Vc is not the virial velocity of the parent dark matter halo, Vvir, as labelled, but is instead the maximum circular velocity of the dark matter halo, Vmax. The maximum halo circular velocity is a much better estimate of the disc Vc than is Vvir. This confusion influenced the discussion of the Tully—Fisher relation in our paper. In fact, Fig. 6 demonstrates that it is possible to simultaneously reproduce both the local Tully—Fisher relation and the luminosity function using semi-analytic techniques applied to the standard λCDM cosmology, thus contradicting previous studies of this issue and our own discussion in Section 3.6. We will explore this promising aspect of our galaxy formation model in a future paper.
