Fig. 3


Snapshots from the first simulation run of the setup with the closest orbit, i.e. an apocentre of 0.5 Mpc and pericentre of 0.3 Mpc. The timestep between snapshots is 625 Myr; they start at the upper left at 0 Gyr and reach the lower right after 5 Gyr. Each snapshot image shows the galaxy face-on and from two perpendicular edge-on viewpoints. In the upper right corner of each image, the actual position on the orbit around the cluster centre is marked. The red dots are bound disk particles, the green dots are bound bulge particles, and the black dots are unbound stellar particles.

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