Chemodynamical evolution of elliptical galaxies : Metallicity gradients and scaling relations
We simulate the chemodynamical evolution of a hundred elliptical galaxies using our GRAPE-SPH code, and succeed in reproducing the radial metallicity gradients and the global scaling relations such as the fundamental plane. These observations cannot be explained by either monolithic collapse or by major merger alone. Rather it requires a model in which both formation processes arise, such as the present CDM scheme.

The H alpha galaxy survey. I. The galaxy sample, H alpha narrow-band observations and star formation parameters for 334 galaxies James, P.A.; Shane, N.S.; Beckman, J.E.; Cardwell, A.; Collins, C.A.; Etherton, J.; de Jong, R.S.; Fathi, K.; Knapen, J.; Peletier, R.F.; Percival, S.M.; Pollacco, D.L.; Seigar, M.S.; Stedman, S. (2004)We discuss the selection and observations of a large sample of nearby galaxies, which we are using to quantify the star formation activity in the local Universe. The sample consists of 334 galaxies across all Hubble types ...
On the Key Processes that Drive Galaxy Evolution: the Role of Galaxy Mergers, Accretion, Local Environment and Feedback in Shaping the Present-Day Universe Martin, Garreth (2019-07-17)The study of galaxy evolution is a fundamental discipline in modern astrophysics, dealing with how and why galaxies of all types evolve over time. The diversity of present-day galaxies is a reflection of the processes ...
Galaxy pairs in the SDSS - XIII. The connection between enhanced star formation and molecular gas properties in galaxy mergers. Violino, Giulio; Ellison, S.L.; Sargent, M.; Coppin, Kristen; Scudder, Jillian; Mendel, Trevor; Saintonge, A. (2018-05-11)We investigate the connection between star formation and molecular gas properties in galaxy mergers at low redshift (z ≤ 0.06). The study we present is based on IRAM 30-m CO(1-0) observations of 11 galaxies with a close ...
