Metallicity fluctuation statistics in the interstellar medium and young stars - I. Variance and correlation

Krumholz, Mark; Ting, Yuan-Sen


The distributions of a galaxy's gas and stars in chemical space encode a tremendous amount of information about that galaxy's physical properties and assembly history. However, present methods for extracting information from chemical distributions are based either on coarse averages measured over galactic scales (e.g. metallicity gradients) or on searching for clusters in chemical space that can be identified with individual star clusters or gas clouds on ~1 pc scales. These approaches discard...[Show more]
