XMM-Newton observations of the late-stage merger-remnant galaxies NGC 3921 and NGC 7252 3

Abstract

Using the high sensitivity of XMM-Newton, we have studied the X-ray emission of the two proto-typical late-stage merger remnants, NGC 3921 and NGC 7252. In the case of NGC 7252, this is complemented by archival Chandra data. We investigate the nature of the discrete X-ray point source populations and the hot diffuse gas components in these two galaxies, and… (More)
