Misalignment of angular momentum of stars (simulation)

  1. Aug 24, 2014 #1
    hey all! I have just finished processing the data of an n-body simulation (RAMSES code was used to do the simulation and AMIGA halo finder found our halos) ,so I have chosen a specific halo and it contains a massive galaxy (and of course satellite galaxies around it) and the code was run from redshift 99 to 2 and now I have calculated the misalignment between the specific angular momentum of star content of this simulation at galaxy radius (0.1 Rvir) and specific angular momentum of dark matter/stars for each radius up to virial radius. and also the angle (misalignment) between the total specific angular momentum of dark matter at virial radius and the specific angular momentum of dark matter/stars at each radius. I was just wondering if anyone knew what these angles could mean. I already know the effect on gravitational lensing, but i'm not interested in that. maybe something more intrinsic,something that could cause problems in the results! help me! :D many thanks!
