Content

  • Local SFR Law in the Milky Way disk based on abundance gradient evolution

  • Observed differences between M31 and MW disks

  • Model comparisons between M31 and Milky Way disks

  • Summary



Kennicutt law average properties l.jpg
Kennicutt Law --- average properties gradient evolution

Strong correlation between the average gas mass surface density and SFR density for nearby disk and starburst galaxies (Kennicutt 1998)


Two types of correlations l.jpg
Two types of correlations gradient evolution

The later form implies SFR depends on the angular frequency of the gas in the disk. This suggestion is based on the idea that stars are formed in the galactic disk when the ISM with angular frequency Omega is periodically compressed by the passage of the spiral pattern.


Applications of kennicutt sfr law l.jpg
Applications of Kennicutt SFR law gradient evolution

When the Kennicutt law is applied in the detailed studies of galaxy formation and evolution, there are several formulism that often adopted by the modelers :

Adoption of gradient evolutionSFR Law for the chemical evolution model of spiral galaxies

  • For the average properties of a galaxies, KS law is OK

  • For local properties, SFR could be local dependent, a simple description is the introducing of angular velocity (Silk 1997, Kennicutt 1998 )

We would like to understand how our Galaxy came to looklike this.


The milky way typical or not l.jpg
The Milky Way, typical or not? gradient evolution

  • It is always regarded that the MWG is the typical spiral in the universe, especially at its mass range.

  • Is this true?

  • How about M31 galaxy, it is a spiral that is comparable with MWG in the Local Group, and now it is possible to have detailed observations.

Purpose of the chemical evolution study gradient evolutionfor The Milky Way and M31 disks

Using the same model

  • Find common features

  • Find which properties are galaxy dependent

  • M31 and MWG, which one is typical ?

Unified one component model l.jpg

  • Disk forms by gas infall from outer dark halo

  • Infall is inside-out

  • SFR:

    • modified KS Law (SFR prop to v/r)


Radial profiles as constrains l.jpg
Radial Profiles as constrains gradient evolution

  • Gas profile

  • SFR profile

  • Abundance gradient

  • Do the similar chemical evolution models reproduce the global properties for the Milky Way and M31 disks ?

M31 gas and SFR in disk gradient evolution

  • Observed of gas and SFR profiles are abnormal when compared with Kennicutt law.

  • Gas and SFR must be modified by some interaction

Summary m31 disk properties l.jpg
Summary gradient evolution: M31 disk properties

  • Current star formation properties are atypical in the M31 disk.

    • Disk formation be affected by interactions

  • Has low SFR in disk

     shorter time scale for the infall.

     contradicts the longer infall time scale for halo.


Slide31 l.jpg

Problems gradient evolution

  • Chemical evolution model cannot reproduce the outer profiles of gas surface density and SFR profiles at the same time

  • The observed abundance gradient along the Milky Way disk still not consistent

  • The evolution of gradients is very important.

    Two tracers :

    • PN (Maciel et al. 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007) and

    • Open Clusters (LAMOST Survey, CHEN Li’s talk, this workshop)

Observation which galaxy is a typical spiral statistical l.jpg
Observation: gradient evolutionwhich galaxy is a “typical” spiral? Statistical

  • M31 : metal-rich halo

  • MWG: metal-poor halo

  • Zibetti et al. (2004) from SDSS survey: 1000 edge-on disc galaxies, metal-rich halo is more common.

  • Harris & Harris (2001) NGC5128 similar to M31 halo

Metal-rich seems more common

  • How halo forms ? Why metal-rich ?

  • Does observed halo really halo?

Summary 2 possible correlation between halo z and mstar l.jpg
Summary – 2 : gradient evolutionpossible correlation between halo Z and Mstar

  • Model predicts more massive stellar halo in M31, about 6 to 9 times than that of MW halo.

  • Massive halo has higher metallicity.

Bekki, Harris & Harris (2003) simulation :

Stellar halo comes from the outer part of the progenitor discs when the bulge is formed by a major merger of two spirals.

 Correlation between halo metallicity and bulge mass


What we can do next for m31 l.jpg
What we can do next for M31 gradient evolution ?

  • Similar model, at present, we only concentrate on disk

  • Need to include halo also, a lot of observations are available for the halo, especially in the field of globular clusters.

  • To add the color evolution, this is important to constrain the model, is it possible to consistent between chemical and color ?

  • To solve the problem of low gas density in the outer disk, introduce new assumption ?

    • Higher outer disk SFE ?

    • Wind in the outer disk ?

    • Interaction ?
