Main Question or Discussion Point
Can a primitive galaxy nova or supernova? Might the former process be involved with star production or the latter with a quasar?
This doesn't happen.Perhaps, if a significant mass of a galaxy collapses, it does so all they way to a black hole (quasar?) without any obvious stages like a star.
I'm not sure if there's a very good description of how this proceeds, especially in the early universe. I don't exactly keep up with published papers, and know of no good explanation off the top of my head.Nabeshin,
"Fragmentation" suggests what I had been looking for. How does this proceed in the early universe?
