Surface Photometry of Early – type Galaxies in the Hubble Deep Field

The detailed surface photometry of a sample of early–type galaxies in the Hubble Deep Field is presented as part of a long– term project aimed to settle strong observational constraints to the theories modelling the evolution of elliptical galaxies from the early stages. The sample has been extracted, in the V606 band, from the database provided by the ESO… CONTINUE READING
