The Fundamental Plane of Field Early-type Galaxies at Intermediate Redshift

Abstract

We present preliminary results on the evolution of the stellar populations of field early-type galaxies (E/S0) from z = 0.4 to z = 0. The diagnostic tool used in this study is the Fundamental Plane (FP), a tight empirical correlation between their central velocity dispersion (σ), effective radius (Re), and effective surface brightness (SBe), which is… (More)
