Spectroscopy of compact star clusters in NGC 4038/4039

Abstract:

The large populations of young star clusters observed in interacting galaxies like NGC4038 4039 ("The Antennae") are widely believed to be the progenitors of part of the globular cluster systems seen in local elliptical galaxies. For a comprehensive study of the young clusters in the Antennae we have obtained near infrared broad and narrow band images (SOFI on the NTT). integral field spectroscopy (MPE-3D at the AAT) and medium and high resolution spectroscopy (ISAAC VLT-UT1 and UVES VLT-UT2)...
