Evolution in M 33 at Giant Molecular Cloud Scales

Abstract

We report on a multi parameter analysis of giant molecular clouds (GMCs) in the nearby spiral galaxy M33. A catalog of GMCs identifed in CO(J = 3− 2) was used to compile associated CO(J = 1− 0), dust, stellar mass and star formation rate. Each of the 58 GMCs are categorized by their evolutionary stage. Applying the principal component analysis on these… (More)
