Dynamical Evolution of Elliptical Galaxies with Central Singularities
We study the effect of a massive central singularity on the structure of a triaxial galaxy using N-body simulations. Starting from a single initial model, we grow black holes with various final masses M h and at various rates, ranging from impulsive to adiabatic. In all cases, the galaxy achieves a final shape that is nearly spherical at the center and close to axisymmetric throughout. However, the rate of change of the galaxy's shape depends strongly on the ratio M h /M g of black hole mass todoi:10.1086/306540 fatcat:xzfvdwfilvdpjm6lnawzsb3wga
