The distinction between the chaotic and regular behavior of orbits in galactic models constitutes an important issue in understanding the dynamical evolution of barred galaxies. The exploration of the nature of their orbits has attracted the interest of many researchers over the last years. Two methods have been generally employed: (i) analytical time-independent potentials and (ii) sel...
Galaxy clusters are the largest collapsed structures in the universe. Being also the most recent structures, they are still growing by accretion and by mergers with other clusters. The intra-cluster gas, observed in X-rays, often exhibits substructures and disturbances in the density or temperature maps, which are signatures of recent merging events. In this project, we aim to analyse t...
This research project aims to study the bars of spiral galaxies, in the context of triaxial dark matter halos. We intend to analyse the origin and evolution of bars as related to its interactions with the halo, which, not being spherical, should significantly influence the dynamics of the stellar disk. The effects of the halo on the bar will be approached with numerical N-body simulatio...
