Prediction of galaxy halo masses in SDSS DR7 via a machine learning approach

We present a machine learning (ML) approach for the prediction of galaxies' dark matter halo masses that achieves an improved performance over conventional methods. We train three ML algorithms (\texttt{XGBoost}, Random Forests, and neural network) to predict halo masses using a set of synthetic galaxy catalogues that are built by populating dark matter haloes in N-body simulations with galaxies, and that match both the clustering and the joint-distributions of properties of galaxies in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS)...
