Simulation of NGC 3769 and its companion NGC 3769A




In this paper two interacted galaxies NGC 3769 and NGC 3769A are simulated by using Intergalactic Gravitational Motion Simulator IGMS code. Through the simulation, the effects of the attraction between the two galaxies are explained how the comapanion galaxy NGC 3769A moves around the main galaxy NGC 3769. At the time (t=850 Myrs.) the situation of the companion comparing to the main galaxy would be in a good agreement with the situation of the two galaxies observed by telescope.
