Frigo, Matteo (2014) Quantifying dry merger effects on the growth of massive compact galaxies: dependency of the SÃ©rsic index. [Magistrali biennali]
Full text disponibile come:
I present a code for generating stable n-body models of elliptical galaxies that follow the SÃ©rsic law, with a dark matter halo. I then use this code to simulate the growth of compact elliptical galaxies from z~2 to z=0 through dry mergers, showing that this process can generate the elliptical galaxies we observe in the local universe, and studying how different SÃ©rsic indices influence this process.
