Aims. We create a model for recovering the intrinsic, absorption-corrected surface brightness distribution of a galaxy and apply the model to the nearby galaxy M 31. Methods. We constructed a galactic model as a superposition of axially symmetric stellar components and a dust disc to analyse the intrinsic absorption effects. Dust column density is assumed to be proportional to the far-infrared flux of the galaxy. Along each line of sight, the observed far-infrared spectral energy distribution… 
SDSS surface photometry of M 31 with absorption corrections
Aims. The objective of this work is to obtain an extinction-corrected distribution of optical surface brightness and colour i ndices of the large nearby galaxy M 31 using homogeneous observational
The Herschel Exploitation of Local Galaxy Andromeda (HELGA). VII. A SKIRT radiative transfer model and insights on dust heating
The radiation of stars heats dust grains in the diffuse interstellar medium and in star-forming regions in galaxies. Modelling this interaction provides information on dust in galaxies, a vital
THE STABILITY OF LOW SURFACE BRIGHTNESS DISKS BASED ON MULTI-WAVELENGTH MODELING
To investigate the structure and composition of the dusty interstellar medium (ISM) of low surface brightness (LSB) disk galaxies, we have used multi-wavelength photometry to construct spectral
Relating dust, gas, and the rate of star formation in M 31
Aims. Investigation of relationships between dust and gas, and study of the star formation law in M 31. Methods. We derive distributions of dust temperature and dust opacity across M31 at 45 00
The distribution of interstellar dust in CALIFA edge-on galaxies via oligochromatic radiative transfer fitting
We investigate the amount and spatial distribution of interstellar dust in edge-on spiral galaxies, using detailed radiative transfer modelling of a homogeneous sample of 12 galaxies selected from
Detections of Dust in the Outskirts of M31 and M33
M31 and M33 serve as ideal places to study distributions of dust in the outskirts of spiral galaxies. In this Letter, using about 0.2 million stars selected from the LAMOST data and combining precise
BULGELESS GIANT GALAXIES CHALLENGE OUR PICTURE OF GALAXY FORMATION BY HIERARCHICAL CLUSTERING,
To better understand the prevalence of bulgeless galaxies in the nearby field, we dissect giant Sc–Scd galaxies with Hubble Space Telescope (HST) photometry and Hobby–Eberly Telescope (HET)
ACTIVE GALACTIC NUCLEUS AND QUASAR SCIENCE WITH APERTURE MASKING INTERFEROMETRY ON THE JAMES WEBB SPACE TELESCOPE
Due to feedback from accretion onto supermassive black holes (SMBHs), active galactic nuclei (AGNs) are believed to play a key role in ΛCDM cosmology and galaxy formation. However, AGNs extreme
Spiral arms and disc stability in the Andromeda galaxy
Aims: Density waves are often considered as the triggering mechanism of star formation in spiral galaxies. Our aim is to study relations between different star formation tracers (stellar UV and
Galaxy morphology, luminosity, and environment in the SDSS DR7
Aims. We study the influence of the environment on the evolution of galaxies by investigating the luminosity function (LF) of galaxies of different morphological types and colours at different
