Numerical Modelling of the Dynamics of the Galactic Halos in the Colliding Galaxies

S.S. Khrapov, A.V. Khoperskov, V.I. Korchagin
Based on parallel three-dimensional simulation of N-body and gas self-consistent dynamics, we study the behavior of hot coronal gas in the colliding galaxies with "live" dark matter halos. We model a few scenarios of the galactic collisions including "bull-eye" and non-central ones, and use different values of the initial velocities of the colliding galaxies. Taking into account the self-gravity, we demonstrate that the collision of gaseous and stellar components does not lead to the formation of a gaseous "protogalaxy" observed in some numerical simulations. Also, we show that about sixty percent of hot halo gas is expelled into intergalactic space during the collision. Numerical simulations show that a considerable amount of gas (up to 70 % for a bull-eye collisions) exchanges between two colliding galaxies.
