Growth of galactic bulges by mergers. II. Low-density satellites
Context. Satellite accretion events have been invoked for mimicking the internal secular evolutionary processes of bulge growth. However, N-body simulations of satellite accretions have paid littl eExpand

Astronomical significance of architectural orientations in the Maya Lowlands: A statistical approach
Abstract A recently accomplished systematic study of 271 architectural orientations measured at 87 archaeological sites in the Maya Lowlands led to several conclusions about the underlyingExpand

Evolution along the sequence of S0 Hubble types induced by dry minor mergers I - Global bulge-to-disk structural relations
Context. Recent studies have argued that galaxy mergers are not important drivers for the evolution of S0's, on the basis that mergers cannot preserve the coupling between the bulge and diskExpand

MERGING OF ELLIPTICAL GALAXIES AS A POSSIBLE ORIGIN OF THE INTERGALACTIC STELLAR POPULATION
We present N-body simulations of elliptical galaxy encounters into dry mergers to study the resulting unbound intergalactic stellar population, in particular that of the post-main-sequence stars. TheExpand
