The Centers of Early‐ to Intermediate‐Type Spiral Galaxies: A Structural Analysis

C. Marcella Carollo
1999 Astrophysical Journal  
Under the likely assumption that the visual light from the faint nuclei embedded in the quiescent exponential bulges is of stellar origin and of a similar Gyr) age for the central star clusters and their  ...  , the old Milky Way globular clusters and the young star clusters, respectively, with typical of about a few up to B20 pc.  ...  A structural analysis of the exponential bulges and nuclei shows that (1) the nuclei bridge the parameter space k e -R e of young and old globular clusters, overlapping with these systems and Ðlling in  ...

Kinematic properties and stellar populations of faint early-type galaxies - I. Velocity dispersion measurements of central Coma galaxies

A. Matković, R. Guzmán
2005 Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society  
We present velocity dispersion measurements for 69 faint early-type galaxies in the core of the Coma cluster, spanning -22.0<M_R<-17.5 mag.  ...  Assuming a strong coordination in the formation epoch of faint early-type systems in Coma, we find that most had to be formed at least 6 Gyrs ago and over a short 1 Gyr period.  ...  In case of Single Exponential Component, Bulge+Single Exponential Component and Bulge-dominated galaxies we only show the bisector value (Figure 4, right pannel) Figure 1 .  ...

Near-infrared bulge-disc correlations of lenticular galaxies

Sudhanshu Barway, Yogesh Wadadekar, Ajit K. Kembhavi, Y. D. Mayya
2009 Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society  
On probing variations in lenticular properties as a function of environment, we find that faint cluster lenticulars show systematic differences with respect to faint field lenticulars.  ...  These differences support the idea that the bulge and disk components fade after the galaxy falls into a cluster, while simultaneously undergoing a transformation from spiral to lenticular morphologies  ...  This publication makes use of data products from the 2MASS, which is a joint project of the University of Massachusetts and the Infrared Processing and Analysis Center/California Institute of Technology  ...

The morphology of H II galaxies

E. Telles, J. Melnick, R. Terlevich
1997 Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society  
The relative position of HII galaxies and of a sample of dwarf elliptical galaxies in the [R -- sigma] diagram support the hypothesis of a possible evolutionary link between the two types of galaxy.  ...  The images are used to analyse the morphology of these emission line dwarfs, and the structural properties of the knots of star formation and of the underlying galaxy.  ...  We especially thank Richard Sword for his art work in this paper.  ...

2017 Astrophysical Journal  
Data analysis suggests that we are catching in act the second phase of the mass assembly in this galaxy, since the accretion of smaller satellites is going on in both components.  ...  As part of the Fornax Deep Survey with the ESO VLT Survey Telescope, we present new g and r bands mosaics of the SW group of the Fornax cluster.  ...  Puzia and V.

DIFFUSE OPTICAL INTRACLUSTER LIGHT AS A MEASURE OF STELLAR TIDAL STRIPPING: THE CLUSTER CL0024+17 ATz∼ 0.4 OBSERVED AT THE LARGE BINOCULAR TELESCOPE

E. Giallongo, N. Menci, A. Grazian, S. Gallozzi, M. Castellano, F. Fiore, A. Fontana, L. Pentericci, K. Boutsia, D. Paris, R. Speziali, V. Testa
2014 Astrophysical Journal  
The galaxy counts in the CL0024+17 core appear flatter and the amount of bending respect to the average cluster galaxy counts imply a loss of total emissivity in broad agreement with the measured ICL fraction  ...  Adopting values very similar to those derived from the most recent lensing analysis in CL0024+17 we find a good agreement with the observed ICL fraction profile.  ...  For these galaxies a single component analysis gave index values up to n ∼ 6 and a significant ring appeared in the halo residuals together with a negative intensity hole in the center.  ...

Searching for Bulges at the End of the Hubble Sequence

Torsten Böker, Rebecca Stanek, Roeland P. van der Marel
2003 Astronomical Journal  
Most of these galaxies contain a nuclear star cluster, as discussed in a separate paper.  ...  Indeed, the surface brightness profiles of these galaxies are generally well fit by adding a second (exponential) bulge component.  ...  The paper is organized as follows: in x 2, we describe the data and the analysis methods that form the basis of our work. The results of our analysis are summarized in x 3.  ...

2009 Astronomy and Astrophysics  
Photometric and structural parameters of the candidates are derived from analysis of their surface brightness profiles.  ...  On deep VLT/FORS1 V- and I-band images of the central part of the cluster, we identify cluster dwarf-galaxy candidates using both morphological and surface brightness selection criteria.  ...  Introduction Probing the faint end of the luminosity function (LF) in galaxy clusters and groups has in many cases exposed a discrepancy between the number of observed dwarf galaxies and the number of  ...

Our goal is to constrain the millisecond pulsar populations in globular clusters from analysis of gamma-ray observations.  ...  Five of them (47 Tucanae, Omega Cen, NGC 6388, Terzan 5, and M 28) show hard spectral power indices (0.7 < Γ <1.4) and clear evidence for an exponential cut-off in the range 1.0-2.6 GeV, which is the characteristic  ...  analysis.  ...
