The role of thermal evaporation in galaxy formation

Abstract:

In colour-magnitude diagrams most galaxies fall in either the ``blue cloud'' or the ``red sequence'', with the red sequence extending to significantly brighter magnitudes than the blue cloud. The bright-end of the red sequence comprises elliptical galaxies (Es) with boxy isophotes and luminosity profiles with shallow central cores, while fainter Es have disky isophotes and power-law inner surface-brightness (SB) profiles. An analysis of published data reveals that the centres of galaxies with...
