Abstract: We examine the past and current work on the star formation SF histories ofdwarf galaxies in cosmological hydrodynamic simulations. The results obtainedfrom different numerical methods are still somewhat mixed, but the differencesare understandable if we consider the numerical and resolution effects. Itremains a challenge to simulate the episodic nature of SF history in dwarfgalaxies at late times within the cosmological context of a cold dark mattermodel. More work is needed to solve the mysteries of SF history of dwarfgalaxies employing large-scale hydrodynamic simulations on the next generationof supercomputers.
