Detecting the effect of Globular Cluster impacts on the disk of the Milky Way 3

Abstract

The crossing of the Galactic disk by a Globular Cluster could produce star formation due to gravitational focussing or compression of disk material. We report on simulations of the effect on disk material which reveal that the crossing can sometimes cause local gravitational focussing of disk material. We also present the salient points of a little-known… (More)
