Context. Stellar clusters in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) are useful probes for studying the chemical and dynamical evolution of this neighbouring dwarf galaxy, enabling inspection of a large period covering over 10 Gyr. Aims: The main goals of this work are the derivation of age, metallicity, distance modulus, reddening, core radius, and central density profiles for six sample clusters, in order to place them in the context of the Small Cloud evolution. The studied clusters are AM 3, HW 1… Expand
Metallicity estimates of young clusters in the Magellanic Clouds from Strömgren photometry of supergiant stars
We present results obtained from Stromgren photometry of 13 young (~30-220 Myr) Magellanic Cloud (MC) clusters, most of them lacking in the literature from direct metallicity measurements. We derivedExpand
Star clusters in the magellanic clouds II. age-dating, classification, and spatio-temporal distribution of the SMC clusters
Aim: We aim to estimate the age and reddening parameters of already identified star clusters within the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) in a consistent way using available photometric data, classifyExpand
The VISCACHA survey – II. Structure of star clusters in the Magellanic Clouds periphery
We provide a homogeneous set of structural parameters of 83 star clusters located at the periphery of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) and the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). The clusters' stellarExpand
SMC west halo: a slice of the galaxy that is being tidally stripped? Star clusters trace age and metallicity gradients
(ABRIDGED) The evolution and structure of the Magellanic Clouds is presently under debate. The classical scenario where both the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds (LMC, SMC) are orbiting the MilkyExpand
Bridge over troubled gas: clusters and associations under the SMC and LMC tidal stresses
We obtained SOAR telescope B and V photometry of 14 star clusters and 2 associations in the Bridge tidal structure connecting the LMC and SMC. These objects are used to study the formation andExpand
Clustering of Local Group distances: publication bias or correlated measurements? III. The Small Magellanic Cloud
Aiming at providing a firm mean distance estimate to the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC), and thus to place it within the internally consistent Local Group distance framework we recently established, weExpand
The VISCACHA survey
Context. The interactions between the Small and Large Magellanic Clouds (SMC and LMC) created the Magellanic Bridge; a stream of gas and stars pulled out of the SMC towards the LMC about 150 Myr ago.Expand
An Updated Small Magellanic Cloud and Magellanic Bridge Catalog of Star Clusters, Associations, and Related Objects
We present a catalog of star clusters, associations and related extended objects in the Small Magellanic Cloud and the Magellanic Bridge with 2741 entries, a factor 2 more than a previous versionExpand
The VISCACHA survey : I. Overview and first results
The VISCACHA (VIsible Soar photometry of star Clusters in tApii and Coxi HuguA) Survey is an ongoing project based on deep photometric observations of Magellanic Cloud star clusters, collected usingExpand
