Aims. Our aim is to extend the investigations of ultra-compact dwarf galaxies (UCD) beyond the well studied Fornax and Virgo clusters. Methods. We measured spectroscopic redshifts of about 400 compact object candidates with 19.2 < V < 22.4 mag in the central region of the Centaurus galaxy cluster (d = 43 Mpc), using 3 pointings with VIMOS@VLT. The luminosity range of the candidates covers the bright end of the globular cluster (GC) luminosity function and the luminosity regime of UCDs in Fornax… 
STRUCTURAL PROPERTIES OF ULTRA-COMPACT DWARF GALAXIES IN THE FORNAX AND VIRGO CLUSTERS
We present a detailed analysis of high-resolution two-band Hubble Space Telescope Advanced Camera for Surveys imaging of 21 ultra-compact dwarf (UCD) galaxies in the Virgo and Fornax Clusters. The
ULTRA-COMPACT DWARF CANDIDATES NEAR THE LENSING GALAXY IN ABELL S0740 *
We analyze three-band imaging data of the giant elliptical galaxy ESO 325-G004 from the Hubble Space Telescope Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS). This is the nearest known strongly lensing galaxy,
ULTRA-COMPACT DWARFS IN THE CORE OF THE COMA CLUSTER*
We have discovered both a red and a blue subpopulation of ultra-compact dwarf (UCD) galaxy candidates in the Coma galaxy cluster. We analyzed deep F475W (Sloan g) and F814W (I) Hubble Space Telescope
The Next Generation Virgo Cluster Survey. XXXIV. Ultracompact Dwarf Galaxies in the Virgo Cluster
We present a study of ultra compact dwarf (UCD) galaxies in the Virgo cluster based mainly on imaging from the Next Generation Virgo Cluster Survey (NGVS). Using $\sim$100 deg$^{2}$ of $u^*giz$
Single metal-poor ultra compact dwarf galaxy at one kiloparsec distance from the low-mass elliptical galaxy FCC 47
Context. Photometric surveys of galaxy clusters have revealed a large number of ultra compact dwarfs (UCDs) around predominantly massive elliptical galaxies. Their origin is still debated as some
The early-type dwarf galaxy population of the Hydra I cluster
Aims. We analyse the properties of the early-type dwarf galaxy population (MV > −17 mag) in the Hydra I cluster. We investigate the galaxy luminosity function (LF), the colour-magnitude relation
ULTRA-COMPACT DWARFS IN THE FOSSIL GROUP NGC 1132*
Eleven ultra-compact dwarf (UCD) and 39 extended star cluster candidates are found to be associated with the galaxy NGC 1132. This giant elliptical galaxy is the remnant of a fossil group. UCD and
Constraining ultracompact dwarf galaxy formation with galaxy clusters in the local universe
We compare the predictions of a semi-analytic model for ultracompact dwarf galaxy (UCD) formation by tidal stripping to the observed properties of globular clusters (GCs) and UCDs in the Fornax and
Dynamical versus stellar masses of ultracompact dwarf galaxies in the Fornax cluster
The origin of ultracompact dwarf (UCD) galaxies, compact extragalactic stellar systems, is still a puzzle for present galaxy formation models. We present the comprehensive analysis of high-resolution
THE RELATIONSHIPS AMONG COMPACT STELLAR SYSTEMS: A FRESH VIEW OF ULTRACOMPACT DWARFS
We use a combined imaging and spectroscopic survey of the nearby central cluster galaxy, M87, to assemble a sample of 34 confirmed ultracompact dwarfs (UCDs) with half-light radii of 210 pc measured
