  1. 1. Starbursts at Cosmic Dawn : Formation of Globular Clusters, Ultra-Faint Dwarfs, and Population III star clusters at z > 6

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för astronomi

    Author : Olof Nebrin; [2022]
    Keywords : Cosmology; Galaxy Formation; Globular Clusters; First Stars; Dark Matter; Cosmic Dawn; Reionization; Ultra-Faint Dwarfs;

    Abstract : In the standard model of cosmology (ΛCDM) the first stars, star clusters, and galaxies are expected to have formed in short bursts of star formation in low-mass dark matter halos at high redshifts (). Up to this point, attempts to predict the properties and abundances of these luminous objects have made use of numerically expensive cosmological simulations. READ MORE

  2. 2. Colliding Galaxies in a (Nut)Shell

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Astronomi

    Author : Jonathan Petersson; [2022]
    Keywords : shell galaxies; simulations; starbursts; quenching; mergers; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Galaxy interactions and mergers are natural recurring events in the current cosmological paradigm, events that often coincide with starbursts and enhanced star formation activity. To understand why that is, one can use idealised (non-cosmological) merger simulations, which provide freedom to recreate specific tidally distorted galaxies, and analysis of the time evolution and underlying physics of the star formation activity at a high spatial resolution.

  3. 3. Planes of satellite galaxies

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Astronomi

    Author : Jessica Laura Erika Kocher; [2022]
    Keywords : Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The Planes of Satellites Problem is an open question within the field of galaxy formation. It is based on the observations that the Milky Way's satellites, as well as those around the Andromeda (M31) galaxy, align in planes. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Metallicity Structure of the Milky Way Halo II : Characterising the distant halo substructure

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Observationell astrofysik

    Author : Amanda Byström; [2022]
    Keywords : Milky Way; Galactic archaeology; halo; photometric metallicities; stellar catalogue; Gaia-Enceladus-Sausage; Sagittarius; Pristine survey; metallicity; Gaia mission;

    Abstract : The Milky Way galaxy, like all spiral galaxies, is surrounded by a roughly spherical distribution of stars called the halo. The halo was largely formed when the galaxy merged with smaller galaxies. READ MORE

  5. 5. On The Run: How Fast Runaway Stars Can Escape From Their Home Cluster?

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Astronomi

    Author : Anna-Maria Söderman; [2022]
    Keywords : star cluster; runaway stars; velocity distribution; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Galaxies contain a wide variety of star clusters with different properties. Each cluster is a possible source of runaway stars, which can be progenitors of supernovae in other parts of the galaxy than their home cluster. Considering runaway stars in galaxy simulations has shown to increase the galactic feedback. READ MORE
