Sharing the baryons : Stars and gas in local volume galaxies

Kirby, Emma Marie


The baryonic content of a galaxy is divided into two distinct, albeit related, components; the stellar component and the gaseous component. Although many individual galaxies have had their stars and gas studied in great detail, overall the relation between these two baryonic components is poorly understood. This thesis presents a study of the stellar and gas properties of galaxies in the Local Volume (D < 10 Mpc) and investigates the relation between the atomic hydrogen and stellar components...[Show more]
