Title: Particle Simulation of Spiral Galaxy Evolution
Author: Greenspan, Donald
Abstract: Spiral galaxies are modelled as n-body systems by means of long range and molecular-type short range forces. A relatively massive, elliptic, type core is sit into rotational motion in a less dense, tidal prone medium. Pressure waves result along whose leading edges there is increased luminosity, which develops in a spiral pattern.
