Observations have shown that the star-formation activity and the morphology of galaxies are closely related, but the underlying physical connection is not well understood. Using the TNG50 simulation, we explore the quenching and the morphological evolution of the 102 massive quiescent galaxies in the mass range of 10.5 < log (Mstellar/M⊙) < 11.5 selected at z = 0. We show that galaxies tend to be quenched more rapidly if they: (i) are satellites in massive haloes, (ii) have lower star-forming…

Massive Early-type Galaxies in the HSC-SSP: Flux Fraction of Tidal Features and Merger Rates

Here we present a statistical study on tidal features around massive early-type galaxies (ETGs). Utilizing the imaging data of the Hyper Suprime-Cam Subaru Strategic Program (HSC-SSP), we measure
