CO in Dwarf Galaxies
This is one of my main areas of astrophysical research. For
additional reading, check out this reading list,
featuring papers by myself and others. (This means you, Mark Rodgers!).
Here is a press release
from January 2003 about my research on carbon monoxide in dwarf
This work was done in collaboration with Fabian Walter and Nick
Infra-red Observations of Dwarf
This is an area in which I have not yet worked, but one
that I think will be very important in the future,
especially with the arrival of the Spitzer Space Telescope.
For more info on infra-red observations of
dwarf galaxies, see this reading list.
For Kris Karas, I've got a reading list
about the connection between dwarf irregulars and dwarf ellipticals.
Tidal Dwarf Galaxies
My collaborator, Glen
Petitpas, and I are currently working on a paper about CO
tidal dwarf galaxies. These are new galaxies, believed to be
forming out of tidal debris during close
interactions between gas rich spiral galaxies. I have prepared a reading list of
published papers on
the subject of tidal dwaf galaxies.
information on tidal dwarf galaxies is available at John Hibbard's web site.
