  • As part of a research program exploring how and why dwarf elliptical (dE) galaxies depart from the fundamental plane defined by luminous elliptical (E) galaxies, we have analyzed archival Hubble Space Telescope F606W images of a sample of 18 dE galaxy candidates in the Coma Cluster. We model the full radial extent of their light profiles by simultaneously fitting a point-spread function (PSF) convolved Sersic R1/n model and, when necessary, either a central point source or a central PSF… CONTINUE READING
