Star formation in nearby early-type galaxies: Mapping in UV, optical and CO

Abstract:

The SAURON integral-field survey reveals that small (∼0.1,Re) kinematically decoupled cores (KDCs) in early-type galaxies are increasingly young toward the center and are typically found in fast-rotating galaxies, while large KDCs (∼0.5 Re) have homogeneously old stars and are present in non-rotating galaxies (McDermid et al. 2006). GALEX UV imaging further allows the direct identification of regions of recent star formation (0.5 Gyr). In NGC 2974 for example, young stars are identified in th...
