Ultraluminous IRAS Galaxies as seen with ISO

Abstract:

We review the results of a major spectroscopic survey of nearby Starbursts and moderate redshift Ultraluminous IRAS Galaxies (ULIRGs) using ISO-SWS, ISOPHOT-S and ISOCAM (CVF) on board ISO. Detailed modeling reveals that massive stars, M-upper greater than or equal to 100 M-. are formed in most Starbursts in relatively short bursts (one or a few O star lifetimes). In the area of ULIRGs we address the main question of the dominant energy source as well as their evolution. We have found that th...
