Tuesday 26 Mar 2019: [Journal Club] The formation of Young Massive Clusters via the Collision of Clouds
Kong Liow - University of Exeter
4th Floor Interaction Area 11:15-11:45
I'll give an overview of the properties of Young Massive Clusters (YMCs) and review some of its formation mechanisms. I'll then focus on its formation via the collision of gas clouds and introduce smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH) to model the cluster formation. Lastly, I'll present some of the analysis done and propose potential future works.
