Context. Satellite accretion events have been invoked for mimicking the internal secular evolutionary processes of bulge growth. However, N-body simulations of satellite accretions have paid littl e attention to the evolution of bulge photometric parameters, to the processes driving this evolution, and to the consistency of this evolution wit h observations. Aims. We want to investigate whether satellite accretions indeed drive the growth of bulges, and whether they are consistent with global… Expand
