"MACRO: what does simulation suggest?"

In this talk, I will introduce the simulated galaxy cluster catalogue for the MACRO project, the main aim of it, and what we find. The hydro-dynamical simulations have a rapid development recently. With complex baryonic models, they now can produce galaxies much closer to observed ones. So we should think about the next move in this research field. With this MACRO project, we want to deliver an message that simulations are not only for theoretical studies, and can not only provide theoretical understandings by matching the observational relations, they can also give suggestions to observations if we can properly bridge the gap between simulations and observations.
