Top: comparison between the clumpiness and the SFR at different timesteps (colorbar on the left), for direct-direct and retrograde-retrograde mergers (with circles and crosses, respectively). This diagram should compared to the corresponding observational result in Fig. 7. Bottom: clumpiness plotted as a function of the mergerness parameter, which is calculated from mock images at finite time intervals. This panel can be compared with the observational finding in Fig. 9. In both cases, we can notice a correlation between the quantities in the x and y axis, which supports the observational results.
