The different lives of galaxies at different environment density levels

Abstract

We take a closer look at the dependence of the galactic colour histogram on the environment density using a volume-limited sample of SDSS galaxies. We find that the strongest changes with environment are taking place with spiral galaxies. In dense environment, discs become considerably redder, apparently due to the shortage of gas, and less concentrated. Contrary to expectation, the mean Sérsic index of luminous elliptical galaxies decreases in denser environments.
