The nearby dwarf elliptical galaxy NGC 205 offers a unique opportunity for high-resolution studies of the interstellar medium in an elliptical galaxy. The present paper investigates the distribution of molecular gas, molecular line ratios, and the relationships between atomic gas, molecular gas, and dust in this galaxy. The line ratios 12CO (2–1)/(1–0) and 12CO (1–0)/13CO (1–0) in one of the molecular clouds in NGC 205 are consistent with the ratios found in other elliptical galaxies and in… 
PROPERTIES OF A MOLECULAR CLOUD IN NGC 185
The dwarf elliptical galaxy NGC 185—the closest early-type galaxy with detectable molecular gas—offers a unique opportunity for high angular resolution studies of the interstellar medium in
MOLECULAR GAS IN ELLIPTICAL GALAXIES: DISTRIBUTION AND KINEMATICS
I present interferometric images (~7'' resolution) of CO emission in five elliptical galaxies and nondetections in two others. These data double the number of elliptical galaxies whose CO emission
Giant Molecular Clouds in M64
We investigate the properties of giant molecular clouds (GMCs) in the molecule-rich galaxy M64 (NGC 4826). In M64, the mean surface density of molecular gas is 2N(H2) ~ 1022 cm-2 over a 2 kpc region,
Mapping and mass measurement of the cold dust in NGC 205 with Spitzer
We present observations at 3.6, 4.5, 5.8, 8, 24, 70, and 160 μm of NGC 205, the dwarf elliptical companion of M31, obtained with the Spitzer Space Telescope. The point-source-subtracted images at 8
The Interstellar Medium of Dwarf Galaxies
Dwarf galaxies are by far the most numerous galaxies in the Universe, showing properties that are quite different from those of their larger and more luminous cousins. This review focuses on the
Impact of ultraviolet radiation from giant spirals on the evolution of dwarf galaxies
We show that ultraviolet (UV) radiation, with wavelengths shorter than 2000 A, escaping from the discs of giant spirals could be one of the principal factors affecting the evolution of low-mass
Radio Continuum and Star Formation in CO-rich Early-Type Galaxies
In this paper we present new high-resolution Very Large Array 1.4 GHz radio continuum observations of five FIR-bright CO-rich early-type galaxies and two dwarf early-type galaxies. The position on

Molecular Clouds in the Dwarf Elliptical Galaxy NGC 205
We present observations of CO emission in NGC 205 (a dwarf elliptical companion of M31) obtained with the Berkeley-Illinois-Maryland Association (BIMA) array and the IRAM 30 m telescope. We compare
THE NEUTRAL INTERSTELLAR MEDIUM IN NEARBY DWARF GALAXIES. II. NGC 185, NGC 205, AND NGC 147
We present new, high-resolution observations of the interstellar medium (ISM) in the two dwarf elliptical galaxies NGC 185 and NGC 205, as well as a new upper limit on the H I content of the dwarf
Evolution in dust lane ellipticals : detection of accreted molecular gas
The detection of moderately large quantities of molecular gas in three minor axis dust lane elliptical galaxies is reported. Masses of H 2 between 4×10 8 and 2×10 9 M ○. have been observed in NGC
SYNTHESIS IMAGING OF DENSE GAS IN NEARBY GALAXIES
We present images of the HCN J = 1-0 emission from five nearby spiral galaxies made with the Berkeley-Illinois-Maryland Association interferometer. The HCN observations comprise the first
The Puzzling Features of the Interstellar Medium in NGC 205
We present CO 1 → 0 and 2 → 1 observations of NGC 205, which is a dwarf elliptical galaxy and a companion to M31. It has long been suggested that NGC 205 has interacted with M31 in the past. The
A survey of the ISM in early-type galaxies - II. The dust
We present results of a CCD optical imaging survey of the dust content in 22 early-type luminous galaxies, selected from the RC3 Catalog. A large fraction (75%) of the observed galaxies show
DUST IN THE CORES OF EARLY-TYPE GALAXIES
The dust properties of all early-type galaxies imaged with the Planetary Camera of the Hubble Space Telescope in cycles I-III are examined. Dust is detected in 31 out of 64 galaxies, although the
Cool Dense Gas in Early-Type Galaxies
CO observations have shown that many lenticular and elliptical galaxies contain significant amounts of cool dense gas. This review summarizes the observational results related to the neutral gas
Far-Infrared Emission From E and E/S0 Galaxies
Early-type galaxies are filled with hot X-ray-emitting gas, but the study of the less plentiful cold gaseous component has been more challenging. Studies of cold material through IRAS 60 and 100 μm
The Star Formation History of the Local Group Dwarf Elliptical Galaxy NGC 185. II. Gradients in the Stellar Population
The star formation history of the dwarf elliptical galaxy NGC 185, together with its spatial variations, has been investigated for old, intermediate-age, and young stars, using new ground-based Hα
