Abstract: AbstractDuring the last three decades simulations of the formation of galaxies have made fantastic progress, overcoming problems such as the angular momentum catastrophe and producing galaxies that resemble disk-bulge systems similar to those observed. In this work, I discuss such progress focusing on the formation and evolution of disks in galaxies similar to our Milky Way, and on the effects of different feedback processes that affect galaxies through cosmic time.I also present the results of simulations tha…
