We present the analysis of the large population of star clusters in the blue compact galaxy (BCG) Mrk 930. The study has been conducted by means of a photometric analysis of multiband data obtained ... 
Probing cluster formation under extreme conditions: massive star clusters in blue compact galaxies
The numerous and massive young star clusters in blue compact galaxies (BCG) are used to investigate the properties of their hosts. We test whether BCGs follow claimed relations between the cluster ...
Central regions of LIRGs: rings, hidden starbursts, Supernovae and star clusters
We study star formation (SF) in very active environments, in luminous IR galaxies, which are often interacting. A variety of phenomena are detected, such as central starbursts, circumnuclear SF,
Unveiling the nature of blue compact galaxies
Blue compact galaxies (BCGs) are gas-rich star-forming low redshift galaxies with low metallicities. In some cases the relative strength of the starburst can be so high that it completely dominates
THE STAR FORMATION HISTORY AND METAL CONTENT OF THE GREEN PEAS. NEW DETAILED GTC-OSIRIS SPECTROPHOTOMETRY OF THREE GALAXIES
We present deep broadband imaging and long-slit spectroscopy of three compact, low-mass starburst galaxies at redshift z ~ 0.2-0.3, also referred to as Green Peas (GP). We measure physical properties
High angular resolution study of the super star cluster population in IRAS 17138−1017
Aims. Currently, the global characteristics and evolution of super star clusters (SSCs) are not well understood, due to the large distances to their host galaxies. We aim to study the population of
The NGC 5253 star cluster system - I. Standard modelling and infrared-excess sources
Using high-resolution Hubble Space Telescope data, we re-examine the fundamental properties (ages, masses and extinction values) of the rich star cluster population in the dwarf starburst galaxy NGC
Legacy ExtraGalactic UV Survey with The Hubble Space Telescope: Stellar Cluster Catalogs and First Insights Into Cluster Formation and Evolution in NGC 628
We report the large effort that is producing comprehensive high-level young star cluster (YSC) catalogs for a significant fraction of galaxies observed with the Legacy ExtraGalactic UV Survey (LEGUS)
The K-band luminosity functions of super star clusters in luminous infrared galaxies, their slopes and the effects of blending
Super star clusters (SSCs) are typically found in interacting galaxies and trace an extreme form of star-formation. We present a K-band study of SSC candidates in a sample of local luminous infrared
On the properties of the interstellar medium in extremely metal-poor blue compact dwarf galaxies GMOS-IFU spectroscopy and SDSS photometry of the double-knot galaxy HS 2236+1344
Aims. The main goal of this study is to carry out a spatially resolved investigation of the warm interstellar medium (ISM) in the extremely metal-poor blue compact dwarf (BCD) galaxy HS 2236+1344.
Optical/Near-IR spatially resolved study of the H ii galaxy Tol 02
The main goal of this study is to characterise the stellar populations in very low metallicity galaxies. We have obtained broad U, B, R, I, J, H, K, intermediate Stromgren y and narrow H{\alpha} and
