Galactic chemical evolution (2017)
Book Chapter
Mollá, M., Cavichia, O., Costa, R. D. D. D., Gibson, B. K., & Díaz, Á. I. (in press). Galactic chemical evolution. In Highlights of Spanish astrophysics IXSociedad Española de Astronomía

We analyze the evolution of oxygen abundance radial gradients resulting from our chemical evolution models calculated with different prescriptions for the star formation rate (SFR) and for the gas infall rate, in order to assess their respective role... Read More about Galactic chemical evolution.

Geometrical structures of chemically decomposed thick and thin disk populations (2016)
Book Chapter
Kawata, D., Brook, C., Rahimi, A., & Gibson, B. (2017). Geometrical structures of chemically decomposed thick and thin disk populations

We summarize the thick and thin disk formation commonly seen in cosmological N-body simulations. As suggested in Brook et al. (2004), a hierarchical clustering scenario causes multiple minor gas-rich mergers, and leads to the formation of a kinematic...

Galactic archaeology and minimum spanning trees (2015)
Book Chapter
MacFarlane, B. A., Gibson, B. K., & Flynn, C. M. L. (2014). Galactic archaeology and minimum spanning trees. In I. Skillen, M. Balcells, & S. Trager (Eds.), Multi-Object Spectroscopy in the Next Decade: Big Questions, Large Surveys, and Wide Fields, 79-83. Astronomical Society of the Pacific

Chemical tagging of stellar debris from disrupted open clusters and associations underpins the science cases for next-generation multi-object spectroscopic surveys. As part of the Galactic Archaeology project TraCD (Tracking Cluster Debris), a prelim... Read More about Galactic archaeology and minimum spanning trees.

The evolution of the radial gradient of oxygen abundance in spiral galaxies (1900)
Book Chapter
Gibson, B., Ascasibar, Y., Cavichia, O., Costa, R. D. D. D., Díaz, Á., Maciel, W. J., & Mollá, M. (in press). The evolution of the radial gradient of oxygen abundance in spiral galaxies

The aim of this work is to present our new series of chemical evolution models computed for spiral and low mass galaxies of different total masses and star formation efficiencies. We analyze the results of models, in particular the evolution of the r... Read More about The evolution of the radial gradient of oxygen abundance in spiral galaxies.
