J/A+A/423/133       Spectral indexes in HII galaxies         (Westera+, 2004)

Stellar populations in HII galaxies. Westera P., Cuisinier F., Telles E., Kehrig C. <Astron. Astrophys., 423, 133-146 (2004)> =2004A&A...423..133W
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, spectra ; H II regions Keywords: catalogs - stars: atmospheres - HII regions - galaxies: evolution - galaxies: starburst - galaxies: stellar content Abstract: We analyse the stellar content of a large number of HII galaxies from the continua and absorption features of their spectra using population synthesis methods, in order to gain information about the star formation histories of these objects. We find that all galaxies of our sample contain an old stellar population (≥1Gyr) that dominates the stellar mass, and in a majority of these we also found evidence for an intermediate-age population ≥50Myr apart from the presently bursting, ionizing young generation ≤107yr.

Note (1): In those cases where the apertures were centered on a secondary knot, an indication between brackets about the position of the aperture, where "Cent'' stands for the centre of the galaxy, and the abbreviations "N'', "E'', "S'', and "W'' (and "NE'' etc.) indicate that the aperture was positioned at knots at the North, East, South or West of the galaxy. Note (2): Type of spectrum as: in: integrated spectra re: spectra of individual regions
