The Minimum Amount of Stars a Galaxy Will Form
We present an analysis of the atomic hydrogen and stellar properties of 38 late-type galaxies in the local universe covering a wide range of H I mass-to-light ratios (M HI /L B), stellar luminosities, and surface brightnesses. Combining the results with those of four other well-studied dwarf galaxies known for their unusually large H I contents, we identified an upper envelope for the M HI /L B as a function of galaxy luminosity. This implies an empirical relation between the minimum amount of...[Show more]
