Observations across nearby spiral bulges

Abstract:

The bulges of spiral galaxies may be old, as in our Galaxy, or may possess younger stars, as evidenced in spectroscopic line strengths in some external bulges. Bulges look similar to elliptical galaxies, but their formation history is expected to differ due to the presence of the disc and different formation mechanisms. This project extends the numbers of high signal-to-noise, broad coverage spectra to a larger sample of bulges in order to test conflicting ideas about their age distributions....
