Formation of Omega Centauri From an Ancient Nucleated Dwarf Galaxy in the Young Galactic Disc

Bekki, Kenji; Freeman, Kenneth

Description

We first present a self-consistent dynamical model in which ω Cen is formed from an ancient nucleated dwarf galaxy merging with the first generation of the Galactic thin disc in a retrograde manner with respect to the Galactic rotation. Our numerical sim
