Radial profiles for initial temperature T and effective Toomre Q parameter for simulations with Rdisk = 100. The temperature increases outward because of its dependence on Q (see Eq. (24)). Q is approximated correctly in the inner parts of the disk. In outer parts, where the density decreases for numerical reasons, Q rises, and thus artificially stabilizes the disk matter.
