Radial Color Gradients in K+A Galaxies in Distant Clusters of Galaxies

Abstract

Galaxies in rich clusters with z & 0.3 are observed to have a higher fraction of photometrically blue galaxies than their nearby counterparts. This raises the important question of what environmental effects can cause the termination of star formation between z ≈ 0.3 and the present. The star formation may be truncated due to ram-pressure stripping, or the… (More)
