Probing the Evolution of Early-type Cluster Galaxies through Chemical Enrichment

Abstract

A simple chemical enrichment model for cluster early-type galaxies is described in which the main mechanisms considered in the evolutionary model are infall of primordial gas, outflows and a possible variation in the star formation efficiency. We find that — within the framework of our models — only outflows can generate a suitable range of metallicities… (More)
