Star formation rate as a function of time for the three galaxy models analyzed in this work. The snapshots/instants analyzed for each galaxy type are highlighted with various symbols. They are chosen randomly (about evenly spaced in time) for disks and only in starburst phases with elevated SFR for the major merger simulation. The corresponding sSFRs (averaged for each type) are given in Table 1.
