Abstract

This thesis uses the EAGLE suite of hydrodynamical simulations to delve into the impact of variousphysical processes on the loss of rotational support in galaxies. Through a comprehensive analysisof large galaxy samples, this work provides important statistical insights into the individual roles ofstellar feedback, gravitational instabilities, gas accretion and galaxy mergers over a large range ofhalo masses and cosmic times. The results underscore that gas kinematics result from an intricateinterplay between these physical processes but highlight the importance of gas accretion throughoutthe entire evolution of galactic discs.
