Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxies

  • G. S. Da Costa (a1)

Abstract

The properties of dwarf spheroidals are reviewed with emphasis on the newly discovered Sextans system, as well as on the star formation histories, the dark matter content and the abundance - luminosity relation of these galaxies. The relation of dwarf spheroidals to other dwarf galaxies is also discussed.
