Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/329758
Description: We use the ATLAS3D sample to perform a study of the intrinsic shapes of early-type galaxies, taking advantage of the available combined photometric and kinematic data. Based on our ellipticity measure ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/297767
Description: We report the discovery of a giant HI tail in the intragroup medium of HCG 44 as part of the ATLAS3D survey. The tail is ~300 kpc long in projection and contains ~5 x 10⁸ M⊙ of HI. We detect no diffus ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/297682
Description: We use interferometric ¹²CO(1-0) observations to compare and contrast the extent, surface brightness profiles and kinematics of the molecular gas in CO-rich ATLAS3D early-type galaxies (ETGs) and spir ... 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/1959.14/298092
Description: Much of our knowledge of galaxies comes from analysing the radiation emitted by their stars, which depends on the present number of each type of star in the galaxy. The present number depends on the s ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/298510
Description: We demonstrate here using both single-dish and interferometric observations that CO molecules are an excellent kinematic tracer, even in high-mass galaxies, allowing us to investigate for the first ti ... More
