See text for a description. We next present simulations which The classical Lindblad diagram, Fig. Possible orbits occupy the tion, which have previously received little attention, are in upper left half of this diagram, and are bounded by the locus fact the principal driver of radial migration in galaxies.

The radial extent of the otherwise infinite disc is limited by the inner and outer tapers, represented by the factors 3. The value We set up the model with considerable care to ensure an ac- of Q is raised where the tapers kick in, since they reduce the curate initial equilibrium, and to keep random fluctuations active mass density by more than the velocity dispersion.

We also adopt V0 as our around rings. The vertical lines mark the positions of corotation solid the spiral mode. The shaded histogram shows only those particles and the Lindblad resonances dotted for near-circular orbits.

The mass of each particle is spread over the ing that the tail is associated with the formation of the inner four nearest grid points and we employ a standard Plum- bar.

The left-hand panel shows the changes for all par- to evaluate the acceleration components on each particle. The changes are are given in Table 1. The axisymmetric part of the field is held fixed nificant heating whereas the comparatively small changes at throughout.

We show, in Fig.

The vertical lines mark the positions of corotation solid and the Lindblad resonances dotted for near-circular orbits. As the figure shows, particles initially close enough to the radius of corotation, interact so strongly that their speed relative to the wave is reversed.

A parti- cle that has moved out across corotation in this way subse- quently slips backwards relative to the wave and eventually falls backwards into the other arm.

As it falls, it loses angu- lar momentum, moves to smaller radii and eventually pulls ahead of the wave. These successive episodes of angular- momentum gain and loss cause particles on horseshoe or- bits to move around the maximum of the spiral potential as shown.

Section 3. Orbits in a spiral perturbation. As the mode grows the period of any trapped orbits decreases, and the width of the horseshoe region grows exponentially; thus the number of particles that develop horseshoe behaviour grows exponentially and the time for which linear perturba- tion theory remains valid for them becomes short.

Thus many parti- Fig. These ideas are consistent corotation to the other cannot be completed if the non- with the behaviour shown in Fig. On the other hand, if the disturbance persists for a 3.

Rough es- momentum changes occur only at resonances. With eq. Hence, as expected, particles cross the res- of the star. Clearly, orbit-averaging makes it impossible to onance at most once.

None the less, we have shown that it Since the second-order perturbation theory developed yields a semi-quantitative understanding of the simulations.

Part of the evolution of the unconstrained simulation. The spiral activity is very mild at all times, the pattern visible at time is perhaps the strongest of all.

The radius of the circles is 21Ri and only 1 particle in is plotted. In an influential paper Wielen showed that the increase in the velocity dispersion of K and M stars with age could be reproduced by a model in which stars diffused in velocity space with diffusion coefficients that are isotropic and constant.

In reality, even in the absence of scattering, the velocity of a star changes radically in the course of a half an epicycle period, so a picture based on velocity space is of limited value.

Indeed, star-wave scat- tering drives diffusion that is as anisotropic as it logically can be, in that stars diffuse along lines in two-dimensional integral space Section 2. Neglecting such effects leads to Figure 9. The light shaded region shows the initial radial velocity seriously mistaken results.

She also claims additional scattering in this event, but any scattering at corotation must occur without heating the disc. The change in the radial velocity dispersion between the start and the end of the simulation is illustrated in Fig.

We again use a half- spiral activity has diminished but not completely ceased. The power is strongly starts with shot noise. The numerical details, summarized under Model tersection with the full curve marks corotation. It is evident U in Table 1, differ in insignificant respects from those in that there is always significant power extending from the Model S described above.

The distributions are wide: particles at intermediate radii can be moved by a factor 2 or more in ei- ther direction.

The Orion nebula, from Shaver et al. In our simulations exactly half of the mass resides in the disc, so we are probably underestimating the extent of radial migration by a factor of a few. They provide readers with an understanding of stellar dynamics at the level needed to reach the frontiers of the subject. This new edition of the classic text is the definitive introduction to the field. A complete revision and update of one of the most cited references in astrophysics Provides a comprehensive description of the dynamical structure and evolution of galaxies and other stellar systems Serves as both a graduate textbook and a resource for researchers Includes 20 color illustrations, figures, and more than problems Covers the gravitational N-body problem, hierarchical galaxy formation, galaxy mergers, dark matter, spiral structure, numerical simulations, orbits and chaos, equilibrium and stability of stellar systems, evolution of binary stars and star clusters, and much more Companion volume to Galactic Astronomy, the definitive book on the phenomenology of galaxies and star clusters James Binney is professor of physics at the University of Oxford.

His books include Galactic Astronomy. Both are fellows of the Royal Society.

It is both readable and rigorous: destined to become a classic landmark in the subject. The authors are, moreover, careful to make clear the limits of present knowledge, and to point out where conclusions cannot yet be drawn. I expect it to stand as a classic reference for many years to come.

Larson, American Scientist "Binney and Tremaine have done a major service to astronomers and physicists alike by producing a magnificent book that will make this fascinating subject much more accessible.

This is undoubtedly the best book from which to learn the subject. This book must become a landmark in the field. James Binney and Scott Tremaine have done the astronomical community a great service in compiling this second edition.The resulting concentration of luminosity towards the Galactic center is not apparent to the naked eye, since interstellar dust absorbs the light from distant disk stars the optical depth in the V band along a line of sight in the Galactic midplane is unity at a distance of only about 0.
