Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/224255
Description: In an effort to probe the globular cluster (GC) system of an isolated elliptical galaxy, a comprehensive analysis of the NGC 821 GC system was performed. New imaging from the WIYN Mini-Mosaic imager, ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/298999
Description: We study resolution effects in numerical simulations of gas-rich and gas-poor major mergers, and show that the formation of slowly rotating elliptical galaxies often requires a resolution that is beyo ... More
