Chemodynamical simulations of the MILKY WAY galaxy

Kobayashi, Chiaki; Nakasato, Naohito


We present chemodynamical simulations of a Milky-Way-type galaxy using a self-consistent hydrodynamical code that includes supernova feedback and chemical enrichment, and predict the spatial distribution of elements from oxygen to zinc. In the simulated galaxy, the kinematical and chemical properties of the bulge, disk, and halo are consistent with the observations. The bulge formed from the assembly of subgalaxies at z ≳ 3, and has higher [α/Fe] ratios because of the small contribution from...[Show more]
