Dynamical Masses of Young Star Clusters in NGC 4038/4039

Abstract:

In order to estimate the masses of the compact, young star clusters in the merging galaxy pair, NGC 4038/4039 (``the Antennae''), we have obtained medium and high resolution spectroscopy using ISAAC on VLT-UT1 and UVES on VLT-UT2 of five such clusters. The velocity dispersions were estimated using the stellar absorption features of CO at 2.29 microns and metal absorption lines at around 8500 \AA, including lines of the Calcium Triplet. The size scales and light profiles were measured from HST...
