During Galaxy-Galaxy Interactions

Interacting Systems with Young Star Clusters
Giant Molecular Clouds (GMCs) as Cluster Progenitors
How do Stars Ordinarily Form in GMCs?
How Can the Bombs (i.e., GMCs) be Ignited During A Galaxy-Galaxy Interaction?
  • GMCs make superb bombs.
  • The bombs can be ignited by the environment without resorting to violent, gas-dynamical triggers.
  • What about young clusters in the LMC?
  • Any Evidence that this Works? [NGC 4038] [M82]
