The long and short term evolution of mergers
involving disk and disk-halo galaxies has been studied by
using self-gravitating N-body models with N~2000.
The stability of isolated, pure disk models has
been examined and it has been found that such models can
be made stable to global non-axisymmetric modes by the use
of sufficient gravity softening.
Disks stablised by softened gravity have been
used to investigate the spin dependence of zero impact
parameter collisions and the effect of...[Show more]
