Galactic dynamics includes the different aspects of research on the formation and evolution of the galaxies. Investigations have been focused on the interaction between the galaxies, alongside the behavior of stellar, gas and dark matter components and their mutual effects in each galaxy. These interactions lead to distinct features, e.g. the spiral arms, bars, and bulges with different properties that can further affect the secular evolution of the system. On the other hand, the cosmological background and the adopted physical theory inevitably influences the dynamics of the galaxies. Regarding the large observational surveys and improved simulations in recent years, the galactic dynamics can act as a powerful laboratory to test the laws of physics.
In this workshop, we will discuss the secular evolution and the effect of spiral arms within the disk galaxies. An overview of the N-body simulations, as a tool to study the galaxies, will also be provided. Furthermore, the kinematic properties of the galactic disks will be discussed. A part of the workshop is devoted to the evolution of galactic disks in modified theories of gravity.
