Lick Observatory Preprint Series-27 Modeling the Radial Distribution of Blue Stragglers in M3 Modeling the Radial Distribution of Blue Stragglers in M3

Abstract

Recent surveys of the blue straggler (BS) population in the galactic globular cluster M3 (NGC 5272) give the rst complete characterization of the number density of BSs as a function of radius over an entire globular cluster. The BSs in M3 are overabundant at large radii, and signiicantly underabundant at intermediate radii. Here we present the result of a… (More)
