Disk formation in a hierarchical clustering model

Patricia B. Tissera, Alejandro Sáiz, Rosa Domínguez-Tenreiro

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We investigate the formation of disk-like structures in a hierarchical clustering model using hydrodynamical cosmological simulations. We study the effects of the presence of a stellar bulge on the evolution of the angular momentum content of the gaseous disks during mergers and encounters.
