Outline l.jpg

  • Building blocks of the Galaxy

  • Ultra faint dwarfs – just what are these?

  • Fyris simulations of supernovae in Einasto DM halos

  • Ultra low-mass galaxies – are these the same thing?

    • "the smallest DM halo that can retain cold gas in the event of a single SN explosion"

      • (JBH, Sutherland & Karlsson 2010)

Outline






Ultra low mass galaxy l.jpg

Ultra low-mass galaxy

no gravity

coldest clouds ~50 K, ~102 cm-3

Fractal medium (Kolmogorov)


Smooth vs clumped l.jpg

Smooth vs. Clumped of a single SN explosion"


Fyris 3d hydrodynamics sutherland 2010 l.jpg

PPM Riemann solver of a single SN explosion"

High order Gudonov scheme

Refined not dynamic mesh

Split-sweep; shock capturing

Asplund (2005) metals except...

[Fe/H] = -4.0

Fyris 3D hydrodynamics (Sutherland 2010)

  • Liska-Wendroff (2003) tests on

  • instability growth, shock capturing...

C: 1.5×

O: 5×

Mg, Si, Ca: 2.5×

H2, dust turned off

  • 3 level nested simulations:

    • L00: 12 rc

    • L01: 4 rc

    • L02: << rc

Sutherland & Dopita (2003)


Ultra low mass galaxy15 l.jpg

Ultra low-mass galaxy of a single SN explosion"

These models were chosen to resemble UFDs, i.e. very low fb

We have begun to consider higher fb models where the core baryons modify the potential – self gravity must be included


Sf timescale l.jpg

Ŝ of a single SN explosion" = <SFR density> ~ 10-4 M yr-1 kpc-2

SF timescale

Timescale

~ N★ / Ŝ π rc2

~ 1 Gyr

Lowest mass ~ 10 of a single SN explosion"6 M:

Gas retention post SN at t=200,000 yrs is ~5%

Fall back gives ~15%

Off centred SN retains ~30%

More gas retained if fb increased

107 M

106 M


Kinematics l.jpg

Turbulence timescale ~ 20-40 Myr of a single SN explosion"

Stars forming in bursts every ~ 100 Myr

Kinematics

σ ≈ 4 km s-1

is at low end of UFD range, σ ≈ 3-8 km s-1


Summary so far l.jpg

Number of stars, N of a single SN explosion"★~ 300-3000

Core size, rc ~ 30-50 pc

Dispersion, σ★ ~ 4 km s-1

Radial profile ~ Plummer or faster

Non-detectability of HI

But are ultra low-mass galaxies truly consistent with UFDs...

See Torgny Karlsson's talk this afternoon.

Summary so far...


Einasto vs burkert isothermal l.jpg

Einasto vs. Burkert (isothermal) of a single SN explosion"

Are there gas rich ufds l.jpg

Are there gas-rich UFDs? of a single SN explosion"


Survival of baryons in ufds l.jpg
Survival of baryons in UFDs of a single SN explosion"

How do UFDs receive and then retain their baryons?

Are they stripped cores of larger ancient systems?
