    • Formation of stars and stellar clusters in galactic environment 

      Smilgys, Romas (University of St Andrews, 2018-03-19) - Thesis
      Star and stellar cluster formation in spiral galaxies is one of the biggest questions of astrophysics. In this thesis, I study how star formation, and the formation of stellar clusters, proceeds using SPH simulations. These ...
    • Formation of stellar clusters 

      Smilgys, Romas; Bonnell, Ian Alexander (2017-12-21) - Journal article
      We investigate the triggering of star formation and the formation of stellar clusters in molecular clouds that form as the ISM passes through spiral shocks. The spiral shock compresses gas into 100 pc long main star formation ...
    • Star formation in Galactic flows 

      Smilgys, Romas; Bonnell, Ian A. (2016-06-21) - Journal article
      We investigate the triggering of star formation in clouds that form in Galactic scale flows as the interstellar medium passes through spiral shocks. We use the Lagrangian nature of smoothed particle hydrodynamics simulations ...
