Nuclear Stellar Disks in E/S0 Galaxies

  • Walter Jaffe (a1) and Frank van den Bosch (a1)

Abstract

New HST images and spectra of the nuclear disks in two Virgo Cluster E/S0 galaxies reveal that they were probably formed together with their parent galaxies. The two galaxies show very different color gradients. This is most likely caused by the escape of high metallicity gas from early stars in the lower mass galaxy. One galaxy shows strong kinematic evidence for a massive central black hole.
