Stellar Feedback and Galaxy Formation

Stellar Feedback and Galaxy Formation

(p.174) Chapter Six Stellar Feedback and Galaxy Formation
The First Galaxies in the Universe

Abraham Loeb

Princeton University Press

This chapter studies radiative, mechanical, and chemical feedback in the earliest gaseous clouds, taking up the thread of discussion in the previous chapter to consider the influences placed on the formation of second-generation stars. While the feedback effects are sufficiently complex that a complete description of them is well beyond the capabilities of present-day computer simulations, the general principles that underlie them are well known. Therefore, the chapter focuses on these principles and then briefly sketches the global picture. Feedback is important in all galaxies, and many of the principles that are discussed in this chapter apply on a much wider scale than just the first stars and galaxies.

Keywords:   stellar feedback, galaxy formation, star formation, earliest gaseous clouds, feedback effects, positive feedback, radiative feedback, mechanical feedback, galactic superwinds
