Ram-pressure induced star formation in the LMC


Mastropietro, C; Burkert, A; Moore, B (2008). Ram-pressure induced star formation in the LMC. Publications of the Astronomical Society of Australia, 25(3):138-148.

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
