  • There is a consensus in the literature that starburst galaxies are triggered by interaction events. However, it remains an open question as to what extent both merging and non-merging interactions have in triggering starbursts. In this study, we make use of the Illustris simulation to test how different triggering mechanisms can affect starburst events. We examine the star formation rate, colour, and environment of starburst galaxies to determine if this could be why we witness a bimodality in… CONTINUE READING
