Ju n 20 03 Line-of-Sight Reddening Predictions : Zero Points , Accuracies , the Interstellar Medium , and the Stellar Populations of Elliptical Galaxies

Revised (B-V)0-Mg2 data for 402 elliptical galaxies are presented which are used to test reddening predictions. These reddening predictions can also tell us both what the intrinsic errors are in this relationship among gE galaxy stellar populations, as well as details of nearby structure in the interstellar medium (ISM) of our Galaxy and of the intrinsic… (More)
