New low surface brightness dwarf galaxies in the Centaurus group

Muller, Oliver; Jerjen, Helmut; Binggeli, Bruno

Description

Context. The distribution of satellite galaxies around the Milky Way and Andromeda and their correlation in phase space pose a major challenge to the standard ΛCDM model of structure formation. Other nearby groups of galaxies are now being scrutinized to test for the ubiquity of the phenomenon. Aims. We conducted an extensive CCD imaging survey for faint, unresolved dwarf galaxies of very low surface brightness in the whole Centaurus group region, encompassing the Cen A and M 83 subgroups lying...[Show more]
