Dwarf Elliptical Galaxies

  title={Dwarf Elliptical Galaxies},
  author={G C Ferguson},
Dwarf elliptical (dE) galaxies, with blue absolute magnitudes typically fainter thanMB = 16, are the most numerous type of galaxy in the nearby universe. Tremendous advances have been made over the past several years in delineating the properties of both Local Group satellite dE's and the large dE populations of nearby clusters. We review some of these advances, with particular attention to how well currently available data can constrain (a) models for the formation of dE's, (b) the physical… CONTINUE READING
