Overview


The Galaxy Spatioplotter generates a galaxy using a newly developed algorithm. The goal of the research was to find an algorithm that generates most of the shapes of known galaxies by changing its initial parameters of its simulation of kinetics of stars.
It is a simulation using three basic observation and theories: “Galaxy Rotation Curve”, “Stochastic Self-Propagating Star Formation (SSPSF)”, and “Density Wave (DW) theory” Combining those three theories, I found it possible to explain various shapes of galaxies, such as spiral arms and bars, and possible sequence of evolution of the galaxy.
