J/ApJ/551/111       HDF early-type and spiral galaxies       (Ellis+, 2001)

The relative star formation histories of spiral bulges and elliptical galaxies in the Hubble Deep Fields. Ellis R.S., Abraham R.G., Dickinson M. <Astrophys. J. 551, 111 (2001)> =2001ApJ...551..111E
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, photometry ; Redshifts ; Morphology ; Photometry, infrared Mission_Name: HST Keywords: galaxies: bulges - galaxies: elliptical and lenticular, cD - galaxies: evolution - galaxies: high-redshift - galaxies: structure Description: We analyze the internal optical colors of a complete sample of I814<24mag early-type and spiral galaxies from the northern and southern Hubble Deep Fields (HDF). The subset of galaxies in the HDF-North are also investigated in the near-infrared using NICMOS photometry. We compare the central (inner 5% radius) colors of those spirals with clearly visible bulges with the integrated colors of ellipticals in our sample. File Summary:
