Dissecting Merging Galaxies Using Integral Field Spectroscopy

Hampton, Elise Jasmin


Galaxies grow through the accretion of gas, minor mergers and major mergers in the hierarchical picture of galaxy evolution. The merging of two gas-rich galaxies cause gas to be driven towards the centres of the individual galaxies producing intense circum-nuclear star formation and creating a fuel reservoir for the accretion onto the central blackhole. Feedback due to supernova winds or AGN (Active Galactic Nuclei) accretion blows out the surrounding gas...[Show more]
