Statistical Mechanics and Equilibrium Sequences of Ellipticals

  • M. Stiavelli (a1) and G. Bertin (a1)

Abstract

Elliptical galaxies are expected to have undergone incomplete violent relaxation. Here incomplete relaxation is regarded as a process producing a metastable, long-lived state which is dynamically stabilized by the approximate conservation of one global quantity in addition to the total energy and number of particles.
