Mass to light ratios of Large Magellanic Cloud clusters

1991 Symposium - International astronomical union  
The massive star clusters of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) are ideal laboratories for the study of the dynamical evolution of rich stellar systems. Not only do they contain large numbers of stars but, unlike the Galactic globular clusters, LMC clusters span a large range in age. Here we describe a continuing project to determine the temporal evolution of the mass-to-light (M/L) ratio of LMC clusters and present some preliminary results.
