Inside-Out Bulge Formation and the Origin of the Hubble Sequence

Abstract

Galactic disks are thought to originate from the cooling of baryonic material inside virialized dark halos. In order for these disks to have scalelengths comparable to observed galaxies, the specific angular momentum of the baryons has to be largely conserved. Because of the spread in angular momenta of dark halos, a significant fraction of disks are… (More)
