Face-on (top panels) and edge-on (bottom panels) projection of the orbital plane of the merger simulation M0. The aligned progenitor is denoted “A”, while the polar progenitor is denoted “P”. The panels on the left show the initial setup before the merger simulation starts (t = 0 Gyr). The panels on the right show the two progenitors 1.05 Gyr later, at their first apocenter, where the aligned progenitor A has developed a strong tidally induced bar (seen face-on in the top right panel), while this is not the case for the polar progenitor P (seen face-on in the bottom right panel). The merger trajectories of the two progenitors are overplotted. Images were created with glnemo22.
