Abstract: We present numerical simulations of the formation and evolution of galaxies. The code used is an SPH-Treecode which has been augmented to include star formation and chemical evolution. We follow the chemical history of the gaseous and stellar components and briefly compare the results to those given by analytical models and to observations.
