Context. The evolution of galaxies depends on their interaction with the surrounding environment. Ultra-diffuse galaxies (UDGs) have been found in large numbers in clusters. We detected a few star-forming blobs in the VESTIGE survey, located at ∼5 kpc from a UDG, namely NGVS 3543, in association with an HI gas cloud AGC 226178, suggesting a recent interaction between this low-surface-brightness system and the surrounding cluster environment. Aims. We use a complete set of multi-frequency data… 
AGC 226178 and NGVS 3543: Two Deceptive Dwarfs toward Virgo
The two sources AGC 226178 and NGVS 3543, an extremely faint, clumpy, blue stellar system and a low surface brightness dwarf spheroidal, are adjacent systems in the direction of the Virgo cluster.
Ram pressure stripping in high-density environments
Galaxies living in rich environments are suffering different perturbations able to drastically affect their evolution. Among these, ram pressure stripping, i.e. the pressure exerted by the hot and
BlueMUSE: Project Overview and Science Cases
We present the concept of BlueMUSE, a blue-optimised, medium spectral resolution, panoramic integral field spectrograph based on the MUSE concept and proposed for the Very Large Telescope. With an


On the variation of the initial mass function
A universal initial mass function (IMF) is not intuitive, but so far no convincing evidence for a variable IMF exists. The detection of systematic variations of the IMF with star-forming conditions
A Virgo Environmental Survey Tracing Ionised Gas Emission (VESTIGE)
We study the IB(s)m galaxy IC 3476 observed in the context of the Virgo Environmental Survey Tracing Ionised Gas Emission (VESTIGE), a blind narrow-band Hα+[NII] imaging survey of the Virgo cluster
A Virgo Environmental Survey Tracing Ionised Gas Emission (VESTIGE)
Aims. We measure far-infrared (FIR) emission from tails of stripped dust following the ionised and atomic gas components in galaxies undergoing ram pressure stripping. We study the dust-to-gas
The Next Generation Virgo Cluster Survey (NGVS). XXX. Ultra-diffuse Galaxies and Their Globular Cluster Systems
We present a study of ultra-diffuse galaxies (UDGs) in the Virgo Cluster based on deep imaging from the Next Generation Virgo Cluster Survey. Applying a new definition for the UDG class based on
The formation of ultradiffuse galaxies in the RomulusC galaxy cluster simulation
We study the origins of 122 ultra-diffuse galaxies (UDGs) in the {\sc RomulusC} zoom-in cosmological simulation of a galaxy cluster (M$_{200} = 1.15\times10^{14}$ M$_{\odot}$), one of the only such
GASP. XXI. Star Formation Rates in the Tails of Galaxies Undergoing Ram Pressure Stripping
Using MUSE observations from the GASP survey, we study 54 galaxies undergoing ram pressure stripping (RPS) and spanning a wide range in galaxy mass and host cluster mass. We use this rich sample to
The distribution of dark galaxies and spin bias
In the light of the discovery of numerous (almost) dark galaxies from the ALFALFA and LITTLE THINGS surveys, we revisit the predictions of the existence of dark galaxies, based on the Toomre
The effect of ram-pressure stripping on dwarf galaxies
Ram-pressure stripping (RPS) is a well observed phenomenon of massive spiral galaxies passing through the hot intracluster medium (ICM) of galaxy clusters. For dwarf galaxies (DGs) within a
Stellar Mass and Stellar Mass-to-light Ratio–Color Relations for Low Surface Brightness Galaxies
We estimate the stellar mass for a sample of low surface brightness galaxies (LSBGs) by fitting their multiband spectral energy distributions (SEDs) to the stellar population synthesis model. The
The Next Generation Virgo Cluster Survey (NGVS). XIV. The Discovery of Low-mass Galaxies and a New Galaxy Catalog in the Core of the Virgo Cluster
The Next Generation Virgo Cluster Survey (NGVS) was designed to provide a deep census of baryonic structures in the Virgo cluster. The survey covers the 104 deg2 area from the core of Virgo out to
