Peter Vandervoort, "Augmented Tensor Virial Equations, Mergers of Galaxies, and the Fate of the Local Group"
Faculty Research Seminar: Feb 26 @ 12PM, ERC 545
The virial equations and the virial theorem are well known tools of inquiry in dynamical astronomy. However, astronomers seldom appreciate the full power of the tensor virial equations in theoretical investigations of the dynamics of stars and stellar systems.
