The ACS Virgo Cluster Survey. XIII. SBF Distance Catalog and the Three-Dimensional Structure of the Virgo Cluster
The ACS Virgo Cluster Survey consists of HST ACS imaging for 100 early-type galaxies in the Virgo Cluster, observed in the F475W (≈SDSS g) and F850LP (≈SDSS z) filters. We derive distances for 84 of
The ACS Fornax Cluster Survey. V. Measurement and Recalibration of Surface Brightness Fluctuations and a Precise Value of the Fornax-Virgo Relative Distance
We present (g 475 – z 850) color and z 850-band surface brightness fluctuations (SBFs) measurements for 43 early-type galaxies in the Fornax cluster imaged with the Hubble Space Telescope Advanced
The ACS Virgo Cluster survey. VI. Isophotal analysis and the structure of early-type galaxies
We present a detailed analysis of the morphology, isophotal parameters, and surface brightness profiles for 100 early-type members of the Virgo Cluster, from dwarfs (MB = -15.1 mag) to giants (MB =
The ACS Virgo Cluster Survey. VIII. The Nuclei of Early-Type Galaxies*
The ACS Virgo Cluster Survey is a Hubble Space Telescope program to obtain high-resolution imaging in widely separated bandpasses (F475W ≈ g and F850LP ≈ z) for 100 early-type members of the Virgo
The acs virgo cluster survey. IX. The color distributions of globular cluster systems in early-type galaxies
We present the color distributions of globular cluster (GC) systems for 100 early-type galaxies observed in the ACS Virgo Cluster Survey, the deepest and most homogeneous survey of this kind to date.
Abundance Patterns in the Draco, Sextans, and Ursa Minor Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxies
The Keck I telescope and the High Resolution Echelle Spectrometer (HIRES) have been used to obtain spectra for red giant stars belonging to the Draco, Sextans, and Ursa Minor dwarf spheroidal (dSph)
The ACS Virgo Cluster Survey. XII. The Luminosity Function of Globular Clusters in Early-Type Galaxies
We analyze the luminosity function of the globular clusters (GCs) belonging to the early-type galaxies observed in the ACS Virgo Cluster Survey. We have obtained maximum likelihood estimates for a
The acs virgo cluster survey. X. half-light radii of globular clusters in early-type galaxies : Environmental dependencies and a standard ruler for distance estimation
We have measured half-light radii, rh, for thousands of globular clusters (GCs) belonging to the 100 early-type galaxies observed in the ACS Virgo Cluster Survey and the elliptical galaxy NGC 4697.
The ACS Virgo Cluster Survey. XV. The Formation Efficiencies of Globular Clusters in Early-Type Galaxies: The Effects of Mass and Environment*
The fraction of stellar mass contained in globular clusters (GCs), also measured by number as the specific frequency, is a fundamental quantity that reflects both a galaxy's early star formation and
A Fundamental Relation between Compact Stellar Nuclei, Supermassive Black Holes, and Their Host Galaxies
Imaging surveys with the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) have shown that ?50%-80% of low- and intermediate-luminosity galaxies contain a compact stellar nucleus at their center, regardless of host
