Dynamical modeling of the Arches cluster using Fokker-Planck calculations

  • Joowon Lee (a1) and Jihye Shin (a2)

Abstract

The Arches cluster is a young, compact, and massive star cluster located in ~30pc away from the Galactic Center in projection. The cluster is located in the extreme environment of the Galactic Center, making it an excellent target for understanding the effects of star-forming environment on the mass function of star clusters. In this study, we estimate the initial condition (mass, concentration parameter, and galactocentric radius) of the Arches cluster by comparing Fokker-Planck calculations with observed velocity dispersion, surface density and mass function data.
