    Dynamical evolution of globular clusters is strongly affected by gravitational tidal shocks. When the clusters cross the disk of the Galaxy they experience disk shocking; when the clusters pass near the Galactic center, they experience bulge shocking. The effects .   We show that the globular cluster mass function (GCMF) in the Milky Way depends on cluster half-mass density, ρ h, in the sense that the turnover mass M TO increases with ρ h while the width of the GCMF decreases. We argue that this is the expected signature of the slow erosion of a mass function that initially rose toward low masses, predominantly through cluster evaporation driven by.

Two-body and impulsive approximations are utilized to study dynamical friction, drag force, tidal stripping, tidal radii, globular-cluster swapping.

    The objective of the Joint ESO-FONDAP Workshop on Globular Clusters - Guides to Galaxies was to bring together researchers, both observational and theoretical, to present and discuss the most recent results. Topics covered in these proceedings are: internal dynamics of globular clusters and interaction with host galaxies (tidal tails, evolution.

Price New from Used from Cited by: One of the world’s most distinguished astrophysicists presents a comprehensive theoretical treatment of the dynamical evolution of globular clusters.

Lyman Spitzer’s research in this field established the framework for decades of investigation. Theoretical models of globular-cluster evolution are examined analytically, summarizing the results of recent investigations.

The emphasis is on aspects which have been studied in sufficient detail to permit presentation of a coherent and somewhat realistic theory. An overview of the observational data is given, and chapters are devoted to velocity changes produced by stellar encounters, the Author: Lyman Spitzer.

Globular clusters, which until this time had a reputation for sedate old age, turned out to lead violent private lives at high energies. However, in the early 80's globular clusters seemed to lose some of the glamor of the 70's.

The evolution of globular clusters after their complete collapse is called post-collapse evolution and in the last decade its investigation became one of the most important problems in dynamical astrophysics.

The structure of a globular cluster — the spatial distribution and random velocities of its stars — changes slowly with time as a result of simple dynamical principles. In much of this dynamical evolution, the changes in the cluster are a consequence of Newton's laws of motion and of gravitation as applied to an assembly of mass :   This visualization illustrates some fundamental aspects of globular cluster evolution.
