The X-ray View of Galaxies in Compact Groups and the Coma Cluster Infall Region

Category: Astronomy and Space Science

Event Format: Lecture

Date: July 30, 2014

Location: Western University, London, Ontario N6A 3K7, CA

PhD student Tyler Desjardins will discuss his research on compact galaxy groups.

Isolated compact galaxy groups provide a useful environment for the study of galaxy evolution. Due to their high number densities (similar to the cores of galaxy clusters) and low velocity dispersions, compact groups are ideal settings in which to study the effects of multi-galaxy interactions on the processing of gas in and out of galaxies, as well as tidally induced star formation. As part of the Multiwavelength HCG Collaboration, I am currently examining the location, amount, and phase (i.e., H i; X-ray) of gas between the galaxies in these groups.

Time: 1:00 p.m.

Location: Physics and Astronomy Department, P&A Seminar Room PAB 100
