On the Angular-Momentum Transport in Spiral and Barred Galaxies
The large-scale dynamics and evolution of disk galaxies is controlled by the angular-momentum transport provided by non-axisymmetric perturbances through their gravity torques. To continuously maintain such gravitational instabilities, the presence of the gas component and its dissipative character is essential.
