Abstract: We use N-body simulations to study the properties of dwarf halos at z ∼ 3 with virial masses in the range 107—109 h−1 M solar. The halos studied in this paper are many orders of magnitude smaller than well-studied cluster and Milky Way-sized halos. Yet in all respects the dwarfs are just down-scaled versions of the large halos. They are cuspy and, as expected, more concentrated. They have the same spin parameter distribution and follow the same mass function that was measured for large halos.
