The maximum flux of star-forming galaxies

Crocker, Roland; Krumholz, Mark; Thompson, Todd A.; Clutterbuck, Julie


The importance of radiation pressure feedback in galaxy formation has been extensively debated over the last decade. The regime of greatest uncertainty is in the most actively star-forming galaxies, where large dust columns can potentially produce a dust-reprocessed infrared radiation field with enough pressure to drive turbulence or eject material. Here, we derive the conditions under which a self-gravitating mixed gas-star disc can remain hydrostatic despite trapped radiation pressure....[Show more]
