Colliding Galaxies  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian and K. Lim
Post a comment | Relations
The Colliding Galaxies Model is an implementation of Alar and Juri Toomres’ 1972 super computer model showing the formation of galactic bridges and tails under the assumption that…
Galaxy Rotation with Dark Matter Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
A. Pisani

The Galaxy Rotation with Dark Mater model shows that the actual rotation of spiral galaxies cannot be accounted for by visible matter alone. Newtonian dynamics allows us to compute…
Orbiting and Colliding Galaxies 3D Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
R. Mitchell
Post a comment | Relations
The Orbiting and Colliding Galaxies 3D Model is a three-dimensional extension of the Alar and Juri Toomres' 1972 supercomputer model of colliding galaxies. This model assumes that…
Spiral Nebula Rotation  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:

Byline:
T. Timberlake
Post a comment | Relations
The EJS Spiral Nebula Rotation model illustrates a simplified version of Adrian van Maanen's method for measuring the rotations (or internal motions) of spiral nebulae. Van Maanen…
Orbits Within Spherical Galaxies Model  [ Computer Program ]
