  • The Milky Way has been generally considered to be representative of the numerous spiral galaxies inhabiting the local Universe, thus providing general and perhaps the most detailed constraints on numerical models of galaxy formation. We compare both the Milky Way and M31 galaxies to local external disk galaxies within the same mass range, using their locations in the planes drawn by Vf lat versus MK (the “Tully-Fisher” relation), jdisk (angular momentum) and the average Fe abundance, [Fe/H], of… CONTINUE READING
