A Dynamical Model for Clustered Star Formation in the Galactic Disk

Kamdar, Harshil; Conroy, Charlie; Ting, Yuan-Sen; Bonaca, Ana; Johnson, Benjamin D; Cargile, Phillip


The clustered nature of star formation should produce a high degree of structure in the combined phase and chemical space in the Galactic disk. To date, observed structure of this kind has been mostly limited to bound clusters and moving groups. In this paper, we present a new dynamical model of the Galactic disk that takes into account the clustered nature of star formation. This model predicts that the combined phase and chemical space is rich in substructure and that this structure is...[Show more]
