Gas dynamics in the galactic center

Abstract:

In this thesis we examine several aspects of the dynamics of the interstellar medium at the centre of the Milky Way. The gas is an excellent dynamical tracer: models of the gas response to an externally imposed barred potential place unique constraints on the Galaxy's matter distribution.

We show how a simple two-dimensional model of gas flow in a rigidly rotating barred potential provides a convincing explanation of many of the features observed in the (l, b, v) distribution o...
