Spiral structure in galaxies can arise from both dynamic and non dynamic phenomena: spiral density waves and stochastic selfpropagating star formation. The relative importance of these effects is still not known. Deficiences of the original selfpropagating star formation model (where only stars are taken into account) are overcome by explicitly considering the stars embedded in and interacting with a two-component gas (Seiden and Gerola, 1979; Seiden, Schulman and Feitzinger, 1982; Seiden anddoi:10.1017/s0074180900032666 fatcat:lgicplriwnbzfbumlakbkuyyyi
