A suite of high-resolution N-body simulations of the Magellanic Clouds–Milky Way system are presented and compared directly with newly available data from the H i Parkes All-Sky Survey (HIPASS). We show that the interaction between Small Magellanic Clouds (SMC) and Large Magellanic Clouds results in both a spatial and kinematical bifurcation of both the stream and the leading arm. The spatial bifurcation of the stream is readily apparent in the HIPASS data, and the kinematical bifurcation is… Expand
The Tidal Origin of the Magellanic Stream and the Possibility of a Stellar Counterpart
We present an N-body model that reproduces the morphology and kinematics of the Magellanic Stream (MS), a vast neutral hydrogen (H I) structure that trails behind the Large and Small MagellanicExpand
The Many Streams of the Magellanic Stream
We present results from neutral hydrogen (H I) observations of the tip of the Magellanic Stream (MS), obtained with the Arecibo telescope as a part of the ongoing survey by the consortium forExpand
The many streams of the Magellanic Stream
Abstract As a part of the ongoing H i survey by the consortium for Galactic studies with the Arecibo L-band Feed Array (GALFA-HI), we have recently imaged the tip of the MS and found several longExpand
Spatial Motion of The Magellanic Clouds: Tidal Models Ruled Out?
Recently, Kallivayalil et al. derived new values of the proper motion for the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds (LMC and SMC, respectively). The spatial velocities of both Clouds are unexpectedlyExpand
Rotation of the Milky Way and the formation of the Magellanic Stream
We studied the impact of the revisited values for the LSR circular velocity of the Milky Way (Reid et al. 2004) on the formation of the Magellanic Stream. The LSR circular velocity was varied withinExpand
Models of Tidally Induced Gas Filaments in the Magellanic Stream
The Magellanic Stream and Leading Arm of HI that stretches from the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds (LMC and SMC) and over 200 degrees of the Southern sky is thought to be formed from multipleExpand
Evolution of the Small Magellanic Cloud
Based on the results of N-body simulations on the last 2.5 Gyr evolution of the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds (LMC and SMC, respectively) interacting with the Galaxy, we firstly show when andExpand
SIMULATIONS OF THE MAGELLANIC STREAM IN A FIRST INFALL SCENARIO
