Molecular hydrogen and star formation in simulations of disc galaxies

Anaëlle Hallé (GEPI)

We present some simulations of isolated disc galaxies realised with a
N-body hydrodynamical code that includes cooling down to low temperatures,
molecular hydrogen and feedback from core-collapse supernovae. We
especially study the impact of the consideration of molecular hydrogen
cooling on star formation in the outer discs and present ongoing work on
the effects of stellar radial migration versus in situ star formation.
