Modeling the Star Formation in Galaxies Using the Chemo-DynamicalSPH Code

  • Peter Berczik


A new Chemo-Dynamical Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamic (CD-SPH) code is presented. The disk galaxy is described as a multi-fragmented gas and star system, embedded in a cold dark matter halo. The star formation (SF) process, SNII, SNIa and PN events as well as chemical enrichment of gas have been considered within the framework of the standard SPH model. Using this model we describe the dynamical and chemical evolution of triaxial disk-like galaxies. It is found that such approach provides a realistic description of the process of formation, chemical and dynamical evolution of disk galaxies over a cosmological timescale.
