Abstract: We study numerically the formation of dSph galaxies. Intense starbursts, e.g., in gas-rich environments, typically produce a few to a few hundred young star clusters within a region of just a few hundred pc. The dynamical evolution of these star clusters may explain the formation of the luminous component of dwarf spheroidal (dSph) galaxies. Here, we perform a numerical experiment to show that the evolution of star cluster complexes in dark-matter haloes can explain the formation of the luminous components of dSph galaxies. © International Astronomical Union 2010.
