On the equilibrium morphology of systems drawn from spherical collapse experiments

Abstract

We present a purely theoretical study of the morphological evolution of self-gravitating systems formed through the dissipation-less collapse of N point sources. We explore the effects of resolution in mass and length on the growth of triaxial structures formed by an instability triggered by an excess of radial orbits. We point out that as resolution… (More)
