Context. Studying outliers from the bimodal distribution of galaxies in the color-mass space, such as morphological early-type galaxies residing in the blue cloud (blue E/S0s), can help for better understanding the physical mechanisms that lead galaxy migrations in this space. Aims. In this paper we try to bring new clues to studying the evolution of the properties of a significant sample of blue E/S0 galaxies in the COSMOS field. Methods. We define blue E/S0 galaxies as objects having a clear… Expand
Environments and morphologies of red sequence galaxies with residual star formation in massive clusters
We present a photometric investigation into recent star formation in galaxy clusters at z ~ 0.1. We use spectral energy distribution templates to quantify recent star formation in large Xray-Expand
EVIDENCE FOR THE UNIVERSALITY OF PROPERTIES OF RED-SEQUENCE GALAXIES IN X-RAY- AND RED-SEQUENCE-SELECTED CLUSTERS AT z ∼ 1
We study the slope, intercept, and scatter of the color–magnitude and color–mass relations for a sample of 10 infrared red-sequence-selected clusters at z ~ 1. The quiescent galaxies in theseExpand
Dissecting the morphological and spectroscopic properties of galaxies in the local Universe I. Elliptical galaxies
Aims. We revisit the scaling relations and star-forming histories of local elliptical galaxies using a novel selection method applied to the Sloan Digital Sky Survey DR7. Methods. We combine twoExpand
Isolated elliptical galaxies in the local Universe

Structural analysis of star-forming blue early-type galaxies - Merger-driven star formation in elliptical galaxies
Star-forming blue early-type galaxies at low redshift can give insight to the stellar mass growth of L$*$ elliptical galaxies in the local Universe. We wish to understand the reason for starExpand
The evolution of the mass-size relation for early type galaxies from z 1 to the present: dependence on environment, mass-range and detailed morphology
We study the dependence of the galaxy size evolution on morphology, stellar mass and large-scale environment for a sample of 298 group and 384 field quiescent early-type galaxies from the COSMOSExpand
Evolution along the sequence of S0 Hubble types induced by dry minor mergers I - Global bulge-to-disk structural relations
Context. Recent studies have argued that galaxy mergers are not important drivers for the evolution of S0's, on the basis that mergers cannot preserve the coupling between the bulge and diskExpand
AGN III—primordial activity in the nuclei of disk galaxies with pseudobulges
Observational data on the evolution of quasars and galaxies of various morphological types and numerical simulations carried out by various groups are used to argue that low-redshift (z < 0.5)Expand
