The model of ejection of gas-dust matter from the center of a triaxial precessing galaxy followed by formation of non-stationary gas-dust disks is considered. Orientation and density distribution in such disks depend on the parameters of the gravitational potential of the galaxy, the galaxy’s angular velocity and the precession angle.
