This work studies the connection between the first galaxies and their hosting dark matter halos in the early Universe when reionization is concluding. Our numerical models (already presented in an earlier study) trace the star formation history at z = 4 - 8, the galaxy stellar mass function, the stellar-to-halo mass distribution, and other high redshift galaxies statistics. All these predictions are consistent with observations to date and with other high-resolution cosmological simulations. A

The theoretical models are compatible with a faint-end slope of the galaxy luminosity function of α = −2 at the end of reionization.
