Distribution of slow and fast rotators in the Fornax cluster

Abstract:

We present integral field spectroscopy of 10 early-type galaxies in the nearby, low-mass, Fornax cluster, from which we derive spatially resolved stellar kinematics. Based on the morphologies of their stellar velocity maps we classify 2/10 galaxies as slow rotators, with the remaining eight galaxies fast rotators. Supplementing our integral field observations with morphological and kinematic data from the literature, we analyse the 'kinematic' type of all 30 galaxies in the Fornax cluster bri...
