Bulge Formation in Late-type Galaxies — Cuspy- vs Soft-core Dark Matter Density Profiles

  • J.-H Huang (a1), Z.-G Deng (a2) and Y.-N Fu (a3)

Abstract

Observational data increasingly indicate that the mergers of galaxies, even minor mergers, can trigger the formation of a set of SSCs within galaxies. the follow-up, dynamical evolution of SSCs in a configuration of dark matter (DM) dominated systems would be basically similar to what we simulated in this work. the scenario that we propose yields a series of results comparable to the relevant observations. Most notable are two points. One is that the low bulge detection rate in very late-type galaxies is in favour of soft-core DM profiles in galaxies of this kind. On the other hand, the observed young ages of nuclear clusters provide evidence supporting cuspy-core profiles. in conclusion, both the soft- and cuspy-core DM density profiles are suitable to relevant dwarf galaxies based on comparisons with observations.
