Fig. 7.


Systematic variation of maximum amplification factor (MAF; for definition see Sect. 2.3.1) and the pitch angle (γ) of the resulting swing amplification, plotted in the top panel and bottom panel, respectively, as a function of disk finite thickness (β) for different Toomre Q values, and for X = 1.5, for a one-fluid disk. As seen clearly, the monotonic decrease in MAF due to the introduction of finite thickness also holds true for X values other than X = 1.
