Multiple stellar populations in Magellanic Cloud clusters

Milone, Antonino; Bedin, L R; Piotto, G; Anderson, Jay

Description

Context. The discovery of multiple main sequences (MS) in the massive clusters NGC 2808 and Omega Centauri, along with multiple subgiant branches in NGC 1851 and NGC 6388 has challenged the long-held paradigm that globular clusters consist of simple stellar populations. This evolving picture has been further complicated by recent photometric studies of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) intermediate-age clusters, where the main sequence turn-off (MSTO) was found to be bimodal (NGC 1806 and NGC...[Show more]
