Abstract

We use high-resolution n-body/SPH simulations to study the hydrodynamical interaction between the Large Magellanic Cloud and the hot halo of the Milky Way. We investigate whether the ram-pressure acting on the gaseous disk of the satellite can explain the peculiarities observed in the Hi distribution and the location of the recent star formation activity

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
