Non-equilibrium Dynamical Processes in the Galaxy

  • Alice. C Quillen (a1) and Ivan Minchev (a1)

Abstract

Dynamical models have often necessarily assumed that the Galaxy is nearly steady state or dynamically relaxed. However observed structure in the stellar metallicity, spatial and velocity distributions imply that heating, mixing and radial migration has taken place. Better comprehension of non-equilibrium processes will allow us to not only better understand the current structure of the galaxy but its past evolution.
