GMC evolution in a barred spiral galaxy with star formation and thermal feedback

Fujimoto, Yusuke; Bryan, Greg L.; Tasker, Elizabeth J.; Habe, Asao; Simpson, Christine M.


We explore the impact of star formation and thermal stellar feedback on the giant molecular cloud population forming in a M83-type barred spiral galaxy. We compare three high-resolution simulations (1.5 pc cell size) with different star formation/feedback models: one with no star formation, one with star formation but no feedback, and one with star formation and thermal energy injection. We analyse the resulting population of clouds, finding that we can identify the same population of massive,...[Show more]
