Fig. 11


Same as Fig. 9, but for galaxies that were evolved in isolation for 3 Gyr: a gSa (upper panels) with a gas mass fraction fgas = 0.1 and a gSb (middle panels) with fgas = 0.2, as well as a galaxy with a much higher gas fraction of 0.5 which went through an unstable clumpy phase (bottom panels). In the latter case the parameters are also shown after 3 Gyr, when the clumps have dissolved through tidal effects or spiraled into the galaxy center through dynamical friction and interaction.

This figure is made of several images, please see below:
