Secondary evolution of galaxies investigated by N-body simulations

Giuseppina Coppola
In the ΛCDM cosmology, merging is one of the most important physical processes that drives the formation and evolution of galaxies. In the present work, we use N-body techniques to investigate some of currently open issues related to the formation and evolution of galaxies along the Hubble sequence (see Chapter 1). In particular, we address (i) the role of dissipation-less merging on the scaling relations and internal color gradients of early-type galaxies, by modeling these...
