Differential population synthesis of 17 early-type galaxy nuclei in the Fornax cluster
Pickles, Andrew John
Flux calibrated spectra have been obtained of the nuclei of 12
Elliptical and 5 Lenticular galaxies in the FORNAX cluster, at a
resolution of 10 - 20 A and in the wavelength range 0.36 to 0.72
micron. The observations have been extended to a long wavelength limit
of 0.88 or 1.0 micron for 12 of the galaxies. The galaxies observed
cover a 6 magnitude range of absolute magnitude and define the form
and intrinsic width of the cluster colour-magnitude relation well.
The galaxy spectra have...[Show more]
