Stellar populations in starburst galaxies
Symposium - International astronomical union
Many galaxies emit a dominant fraction of their bolometric luminosity in the infrared. The small mass-luminosity ratios suggest that these infrared luminosities cannot be sustained by a normal stellar population over a Hubble time. The commonly held explanation is that there has been a burst of star formation sufficiently recently that the full spectrum of the initial mass function up to the highest mass stars is contributing to the luminosity. Starburst galaxies therefore provide laboratoriesdoi:10.1017/s0074180900206281 fatcat:tsecdwwr4zerfhqamsqjkavzse
