  • There are very strong observed correlations between the specific star-formation rates (sSFR) of galaxies and their mean surface mass densities, {\Sigma}, as well as other aspects of their internal structure. These strong correlations have often been taken to indicate that the internal structure of a galaxy must play a major physical role, directly or indirectly, in the control of star-formation. In this paper we show by means of a very simple toy model that these correlations can arise… CONTINUE READING
