Faint extended elliptically shaped ultra-diffuse galaxies and slightly brighter and more compact dwarf elliptical and lenticular stellar systems are common in galaxy clusters. Their poorly constrained evolutionary paths can be studied by identifying young ultra-diffuse galaxy and dwarf elliptical analogues populated with bright, massive stars. Using data mining we identified 11 such low-mass (2 × 10 8   M ⊙  <  M ★  < 2 × 10 9   M ⊙ ) galaxies with large half-light radii (2.0 kpc <  r e  < 5… 

Simulating Jellyfish Galaxies: A Case Study for a Gas-rich Dwarf Galaxy

We investigate the formation of jellyfish galaxies using radiation-hydrodynamic simulations of gas-rich dwarf galaxies with a multiphase interstellar medium (ISM). We find that the

The Relevance of Ram Pressure Stripping for the Evolution of Blue Cluster Galaxies as Seen at Optical Wavelengths

Ram pressure stripping is one of the most efficient mechanisms able to affect the gas reservoir in cluster galaxies, and in the last decades many studies have characterized the properties of stripped

Warped Disk Galaxies. I. Linking U-type Warps in Groups/Clusters to Jellyfish Galaxies

Warped disk galaxies are classified into two morphologies: S and U types. Conventional theories routinely attribute both types to galactic tidal interaction and/or gas accretion, but reproducing U

High-resolution, High-sensitivity, Low-frequency uGMRT View of Coma Cluster of Galaxies

We present high-resolution, high-sensitivity upgraded Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope observations of the Coma cluster (A1656) at 250–500 MHz and 550–850 MHz. At 250–500 MHz, 135 sources have

A New Method to Constrain the Appearance and Disappearance of Observed Jellyfish Galaxy Tails

We present a new approach for observationally constraining where the tails of Jellyfish (JF) galaxies in groups and clusters first appear and how long they remain visible for with respect to the

Ultraviolet tails and trails in cluster galaxies: a sample of candidate gaseous stripping events in Coma

We have used new deep observations of the Coma cluster from GALEX to identify 13 star-forming galaxies with asymmetric morphologies in the ultraviolet. Aided by optical broad-band and H-alpha

Internal Dynamics and Stellar Content of Nine Ultra-diffuse Galaxies in the Coma Cluster Prove Their Evolutionary Link with Dwarf Early-type Galaxies

Ultra-diffuse galaxies (UDGs) are spatially extended, low surface brightness stellar systems with regular elliptical-like morphology found in a wide range of environments. Studies of the internal

The origin of low-surface-brightness galaxies in the dwarf regime

Low-surface-brightness galaxies (LSBGs) – defined as systems that are fainter than the surface-brightness limits of past wide-area surveys – form the overwhelming majority of galaxies in the dwarf

TRANSFORMATION OF A VIRGO CLUSTER DWARF IRREGULAR GALAXY BY RAM PRESSURE STRIPPING: IC3418 AND ITS FIREBALLS

We present optical imaging and spectroscopy and H i imaging of the Virgo Cluster galaxy IC 3418, which is likely a “smoking gun” example of the transformation of a dwarf irregular into a dwarf

Evolution of dwarf early-type galaxies I. Spatially resolved stellar populations and internal kinematics of Virgo cluster dE/dS0 galaxies

Understanding the origin and evolution of dwarf early-type galaxies remains an important open issue in modem astrophysics. Internal kinematics of a galaxy contains signatures of violent phenomena

A DOZEN NEW GALAXIES CAUGHT IN THE ACT: GAS STRIPPING AND EXTENDED EMISSION LINE REGIONS IN THE COMA CLUSTER

High-resolution mass models of dwarf galaxies from LITTLE THINGS

We present high-resolution rotation curves and mass models of 26 dwarf galaxies from “Local Irregulars That Trace Luminosity Extremes, The H i Nearby Galaxy Survey” (LITTLE THINGS). LITTLE THINGS is

Ultra Diffuse Galaxies are a Subset of Cluster Dwarf Elliptical/Spheroidal Galaxies

Since 2015 there has been a great deal of interest in a supposed new class of galaxy called Ultra Diffuse Galaxies (UDGs). These are large systems with sizes $> 1.5$ kpc and have surface brightness

Reconstructing star formation histories of recently formed ultra-diffuse galaxies.

Observational studies of ultra-diffuse galaxies (UDGs) represent a significant challenge because of their very low surface brightnesses. A feasible approach is to identify "future" UDGs when their
