Modeling the chemical evolution of ω Centauri using three - dimensional hydrodynamical simulations

Abstract

We present a hydrodynamical and chemical model for the globular cluster ω Cen, under the assumption that it is the remnant of an ancient dwarf spheroidal galaxy (dSph), the bulk of which was disrupted and accreted by our Galaxy ∼10 Gyr ago. We highlight the very different roles played by Type II and Type Ia supernovae (SNe) in the chemical enrichment of the… (More)
