Abstract: Cosmological hydrodynamic simulations of galaxy formation allow us to look at the evolution of individual galaxies in a way that cannot be done in observations, where we only see any one galaxy at a single point in time. They also give us access to difficult- or impossible-to-observe components of galaxies and allow us to interpret the physical relationship between the components of galaxies that can be observed. I will discuss the MUGS and MaGICC suites of galaxy formation simulations and highlight some recent results on these topics, including the chemical enrichment of galaxies, the rotation of hot halo gas in their surroundings, and the structure of the dark matter halo near the virial radius.
