Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/271537
Description: Measurements of the low -z Hα luminosity function, φ, have a large dispersion in the local number density of sources (~0.5-1 Mpc⁻³ dex⁻¹), and correspondingly in the star formation rate density (SFRD) ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/297613
Description: For early-type galaxies, the ability to sustain a corona of hot, X-ray-emitting gas could have played a key role in quenching their star formation history. A halo of hot gas may act as an effective sh ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/297396
Description: We explore the connection between the local escape velocity, Vesc, and the stellar population properties in the ATLAS3D survey, a complete, volume-limited sample of nearby early-type galaxies. We make ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/297304
Description: We investigate nuclear light profiles in 135 ATLAS3D galaxies for which the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) imaging is available and compare them to the large-scale kinematics obtained with the SAURONint ... More

Description: We investigate the [3.6]-[4.5]Spitzer-IRAC colour behaviour of the early-type galaxies of the SAURON survey, a representative sample of 48 nearby ellipticals and lenticulars. We investigate how this c ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/224176
Description: Here we present the colours of individual globular clusters (GCs) around the massive elliptical galaxy NGC 1407 out to a projected galactocentric radius of 140kpc or 17 galaxy effective radii (Re). Su ... More

Description: We use the ATLAS3D sample of 260 early-type galaxies to study the apparent kinematic misalignment angle, ψ, defined as the angle between the photometric and kinematic major axes. We find that 71 per c ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/298331
Description: In Paper I of this series we introduced a volume-limited parent sample of 871 galaxies from which we extracted the ATLAS 3D sample of 260 early-type galaxies (ETGs). In Papers II and III we classified ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/300329
Description: We propose a simple model for the origin of fast and slow rotator early-type galaxies (ETG) within the hierarchical ⋀cold dark matter (⋀CDM) scenario, that is based on the assumption that the mass fra ... More
