Fig. 2


Face-on (top) and edge-on (bottom) density contours of the gas in the disk of model A with Rg = 2Rd, evolved in isolation. The contour levels are at 0.25, 1, 4, and 16 × 1020 N cm-2. The local star formation regions (and their amplitude) are shown in green at different moments during the simulation.
