[119.07] Galaxy Evolution: The Role of Supernova Feedback

D. H. Hartmann (Clemson University), J. M. Myers (Francis Marion University), J. Johnson, L.-S. The (Clemson University)

We present SPH/N-Body simulations of the formation of isolated galaxies in the Lambda-CDM framework of cosmology. Using MW globular clusters as tracers of evolving proto-galaxies, we investigate the role of energy feedback from massive stars via stellar mass loss and supernova explosions. In particular, we find that thermal feedback is not adequate to explain the observed properties of the Galactic population of globulars. We discuss alternative feedback scenarios.
