Using images from the SDSS DR13 library, we examine the structural properties of 374 normal (classed E0 to E6) and dwarf ellipticals (classed dE(nN) to dE(N)). The sample combines a multicolor sample of bright ellipticals (252 galaxies with $M_g -20$) which overlaps the dwarf elliptical sample (62 galaxies) in luminosity and size. The faint ellipticals extend the linear structural correlations found for bright ellipticals into parameter space not occupied by dwarf ellipticals indicating a… CONTINUE READING
