DDA 2015 – Dynamical Evolution of Multiple-Population Globular Clusters

This is one of a series of notes taken during the 2015 meeting of the AAS Division on Dynamical Astronomy, 3-7 May, at CalTech. An index to this series (all the papers presented at the meeting) is here.

Session: Star Cluster and Galaxy Dynamics

Enrico Vesperini (Indiana University) (invited) [withdrawn]


Numerous spectroscopic and photometric studies have provided strong evidence of the presence of multiple stellar populations in globular clusters and raised many fundamental questions concerning the formation and dynamical evolution of these stellar systems. After a brief review of the main observational studies, I will present the results of theoretical investigations exploring a number of aspects of the internal dynamics of multiple-population clusters and their formation history.
