SDSS-IV MaNGA: the formation of S0 galaxies (2018)
Journal Article
Fraser-McKelvie, A., Aragon-Salamanca, A., Merrifield, M., Tabor, M., Bernardi, M., Drory, N., …Argudo-Fernandez, M. (2018). SDSS-IV MaNGA: the formation of S0 galaxies. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 481(4), (5580–5591). doi:10.1093/mnras/sty2563. ISSN 0035-8711

Gas stripping of spiral galaxies or mergers are thought to be the formation mechanisms of lenticular galaxies. In order to determine the conditions in which each scenario dominates, we derive stellar populations of both the bulge and disk regions of... Read More

Multiple mechanisms quench passive spiral galaxies (2017)
Journal Article
Fraser-McKelvie, A., Brown, M. J. I., Pimbblet, K., Dolley, T., & Bonne, N. J. (2018). Multiple mechanisms quench passive spiral galaxies. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 474(2), doi:10.1093/mnras/stx2823. ISSN 0035-8711

We examine the properties of a sample of 35 nearby passive spiral galaxies in order to determine their dominant quenching mechanism(s). All five low-mass (M⋆ < 1 × 1010 M⊙) passive spiral galaxies are located in the rich Virgo cluster. This is in con... Read More
