Chemical Evolution of the Galactic Disk and Bulge

  • Rosemary F.G. Wyse (a1) (a2)

Extract

The Milky Way Galaxy offers a unique opportunity for testing theories of galaxy formation and evolution. The study of the spatial distribution, kinematics and chemical abundances of stars in the Milky Way Galaxy allows one to address specific questions pertinent to this meeting such as

  1. (i)When was the Galaxy assembled? Is this an ongoing process? What was the merging history of the Milky Way?
  2. (ii)When did star formation occur in what is now “The Milky Way Galaxy”? Where did the star formation occur then? What was the stellar Initial Mass Function?
  3. (iii)How much dissipation of energy was there before and during the formation of the different stellar components of the Galaxy?
  4. (iv)What are the relationships among the different stellar components of the Galaxy?
  5. (v)Was angular momentum conserved during formation of the disk(s) of the Galaxy?
  6. (vi)What is the shape of the dark halo?
  7. (vii)Is there dissipative (disk) dark matter?
