Collisional Debris as Laboratories to Study Star Formation
In this paper we address the question of whether star formation (SF) is driven by local processes or the large-scale environment. To do so, we investigate SF in collisional debris where the gravitational potential well and ...
Molecular Gas in the Intergalactic Medium of Stephan's Quintet
(Astronomical Society of the Pacific, 2003)
Abundant molecular gas in the intergalactic medium of Stephan's Quintet
Stephan's Quintet (SQ) is a system consisting of at least four interacting galaxies which is well known for its complex dynamical and star formation history. It possesses a rich intergalactic medium (IGM), where hydrogen ...
Star Formation in Tidal Dwarf Galaxies
(Astronomical Society of the Pacific, 2002)
Tidal Dwarf Galaxies (TDGs) are objects presently forming from gas that has been expelled from their parent galaxies during an interaction. We searched for CO emission in a sample of 11 TDGs, of which 8 were detected. The ...
