The Cold and Hot Gas Content of Fine-structure E and S0 Galaxies

Abstract

We investigate trends of the cold and hot gas content of early-type galaxies with the presence of optical morphological peculiarities, as measured by the fine-structure index Σ. H i mapping observations from the literature are used to track the cold-gas content, and archival ROSAT PSPC data are used to quantify the hot-gas content. We find that E and S0… (More)
