|Abstract:||The chemodynamical evolution of spherical multi-component self-gravitating models for isolated dwarf galaxies is studied. We compared their evolution with and without feedback effects from star formation processes. We found that initially cuspy dark matter profiles flatten with time without any special tuning conditions as a result of star formation. Thus the seemingly flattened profiles found in many dwarfs do not contradict the cuspy profiles predicted by cosmological models. We also calculated the chemical evolution of stars and gas, to permit comparisons with observational data.|
