Winds, outflows, and inflows in X-ray elliptical galaxies. I
The novel class of 1D hydrodynamical evolutionary sequences for gas flows in elliptical galaxies presented employs model galaxies whose virialized density distributions are constrained to lie onExpand

Abundance gradient slopes versus mass in spheroids: predictions by monolithic models
We investigate whether it is possible to explain the wide range of observed gradients in early-type galaxies in the framework of monolithic models. To do so, we extend the set of hydrodynamicalExpand

Paving the way for the JWST: witnessing globular cluster formation at z > 3
We report on five compact, extremely young ( 3, elusive even in the deepest blank fields. We discuss how proto-GCs might contribute to the ionization budget of the Universe and augment Lya visibilityExpand

Dynamical evolution and spatial mixing of multiple population globular clusters
In this paper we study the long-term dynamical evolution of multiple-population clusters, focusing on the evolution of the spatial distributions of the first- (FG) and second-generation (SG) stars.InExpand

Three-dimensional simulations of the interstellar medium in dwarf galaxies - I. Ram pressure stripping
We present 3D hydrodynamic simulations of ram pressure stripping in dwarf galaxies. Analogous studies on this subject usually deal with much higher ram pressures, typical of galaxy clusters, or mildExpand

The formation of multiple populations in the globular cluster 47 Tuc
We use the combination of photometric and spectroscopic data of 47 Tuc stars to reconstruct the possible formation of a second generation of stars in the central regions of the cluster, from matterExpand

The chemical composition of red giants in 47 Tucanae I: Fundamental parameters and chemical abundance patterns
Context: The study of chemical abundance patterns in globular clusters is of key importance to constrain the different candidates for intra-cluster pollution of light elements. Aims: We aim atExpand

Super-AGB-AGB Evolution and the Chemical Inventory in NGC?2419
We follow the scenario of formation of second-generation stars in globular clusters by matter processed by hot bottom burning (HBB) in massive asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars and super-AGB starsExpand

Star formation feedback and metal enrichment by Types Ia and II supernovae in dwarf spheroidal galaxies: the case of Draco
We present 3D hydrodynamic simulations aimed at studying the dynamical and chemical evolution of the interstellar medium in dwarf spheroidal galaxies. This evolution is driven by the explosions ofExpand

The chemical evolution of dwarf spheroidal galaxies: dissecting the inner regions and their stellar populations
Using three-dimensional hydrodynamical simulations of isolated dwarf spheroidal galaxies (dSphs), we undertake an analysis of the chemical properties of their inner regions, identifying theExpand
