Are interactions the primary triggers of star formation in dwarf galaxies?

Abstract

We investigate the assumption that the trigger of star formation in dwarf galaxies are interactions with other galaxies, in the context of a search for a “primary” trigger of a first generation of stars. This is cosmologically relevant because the galaxy formation process consists not only of the accumulation of gas in a gravitational potential well, but… (More)
