Title: Chemo-dynamical Models of dEs without Dark Matter
Date: Thursday 28th May
Time: 9:30 - 10:00
Presentation file: talk_Hensler.pdf
Since TDGs are supposed to evolve void of dominant Dark Matter, for our understanding of their evolution it has to be modelled how star formation self-regulates in order to keep the galaxy bound and how the galaxies evolve to become eventually a system of dSphs. Here we compile some standard and most recent observational issues of Milky Way dSphs and discuss the results of simple chemo-dynamical models in order to provide an insight into the intrinsic evolutionary scenario in comparison with observations.
