AY202a Galaxies & DynamicsLecture 23:Galaxy Evolution

Dynamical Evolution

Galaxy shapes affected by dynamical interactions with other galaxies (& satellites)

Galaxy luminosities will change with accretion & mergers

SFR will be affected by interactions

Mergers – the simple model

Rate P = π R2 <vrel> N t

P = probability of a merger in time t

R = impact parameter N = density vrel = relative velocities

N h-3 rc h vrel

0.05 Mpc-3 20 kpc 300 km/s

Roughly

P = 2x10-4()( )2( ) 1/H0

a small number, but we see a lot in clusters

N ~ 103 – 104 N field

V rel ~ 3-5 V rel field

The problem was worked first by Spitzer & Baade in the ’50’s, then Ostriker & Tremaine, Toomre2 and others in the ’70’s

Results from n-body simulations: and a spheroid of mass 100x in units of the circular period. Bar under 0 is ten scale lengths for the disk

(1) Cross sections for merging are enhanced if

angular momenta of the galaxies are aligned (prograde) and reduced of antialigned (retrograde)

(2) Merger remnants will have both higher central surface density and larger envelopes --- peaks and puffs

(3) Head on collisions prolate galaxies along the line of centers, off center collisions oblate galaxies

where

φ = error function

x = √2 v/σ

Λ = rmax/rmin (maximum & minimum

impact parameters)

usually rmin = max (rS, GMS/v2)

If you apply this to typical galaxy clustering distributions, on average a large E galaxy has eaten about ½ its current mass. Giant E’s in clusters are a special case.

Ostriker & Hausman ’78

Simulations for 1st ranked galaxies (BCG’s)

1. Galaxies get brighter with time due to cannibalism (L)

2. Galaxies get bigger with time (β)

3. Galaxies get bluer with time by eating lower L, thus lower [Fe/H] galaxies

Core radius

5 different simulations of eating 30 neighbors

SFR = dM*/dt = C μn μ = gas surface density

and assume the Instantaneous Recycling approximation some fraction α of gas is not returned to the gas mass and a fraction 1- α is returned instantaneously, metal enriched

μ = μ0 – α s , s= stellar density

Then

dμ/dt = -α ds/dt = -α Cμn = -μn /t0

where t0 = 1/αC is the characteristic time constant for significant changes in the disk gas density

If z is the fraction of heavy elements by mass in the gas, and λ is the fraction of mass in stars which is converted completely to heavy elements and ejected into the ISM. If we define zμ as the fraction of heavy elements per unit mass+ in the disk

d(zμ)/dt = -z ds/dt + (1-α –λ) z ds/dt + λ ds/dt

then the yield Y = λ/α = the ratio of the mass converted into heavy elements to the mass locked up in stars, and we have

d(zμ)/ds = λ (1 – z) - αz

loss due to SF

return due to winds w no processing

return of completely processed material

+ mass includes both stellar and gas

d(zμ)/ds = μ dz/ds + z dμ/ds = -αμ dz/dμ – α z

-μ dz/dμ = dz/d(ln 1/μ) = λ (1 – z) /α

λ/α is usually termed the yield Y, the ratio of the mass completely converted to heavy elements to the mass locked up in stars. (in the limit of small z)

dz/d(ln 1/μ) = Y

z = Y ln(1/μ)

so the heavy element abundance is simply related to the net fraction of the mass of gas turned into stars

For the simple Tayler model the yield is ~ 0.004

Model and

The G dwarf problem --- most nearby stars are metal rich

Data

1. Prompt Initial Enrichment (PIE)

2. Variable IMF with increased yields in the past

3. Metal enhanced star formation stars for preferentially in high [Fe/H] regions

4. Infall --- gas not described by a closed box

“4” may be best – we expect infall in most formation scenarios, but we need a variable infall rate

MG(t) = MG0 + ME(t) - M*(t) + MI(t)

all of 1-4 probably operate in the galaxy

Metallicity Gradients and

Simple model has one important success ---

successfully predicts linear metallicity gradients in spirals

z(r) = z0 – r (1/rT – 1/rG)

rT = scale length of total mass density

rG = scale length of total gas density

Magnetic fields set scaling with mass. YSO Winds and radiation pressure depress the high mass end.

Summary and

Galaxies evolve both dynamically and via stellar populations.

Dynamics driven by mergers and acquisitions which depend on environment and such variables as the energy and angular momentum of encounters.

Populations depend on a host of variables but primarily IMF, SFR, gas processes and chemistry. Chemistry can be complicated.

Dynamics can induce Star Formation.
