The unorthodox evolution of major merger remnants into star-forming spiral galaxies

15 Jun 2017 Sparre Martin Springel Volker

Galaxy mergers are believed to play a key role in transforming star-forming disk galaxies into quenched ellipticals. Most of our theoretical knowledge about such morphological transformations does, however, rely on idealised simulations where processes such as cooling of hot halo gas into the disk and gas accretion in the post-merger phase are not treated in a self-consistent cosmological fashion...
