Metal–rich Stars in the Galactic Bulge and their Implications for Elliptical Galaxies

  • Elaine M. Sadler (a1)

Abstract

A new study of more than 400 K giants in the inner Galactic bulge confirms that many have high metallicity ([Fe/H] ≪ 0). Such stars are valuable templates in understanding the stellar populations of elliptical galaxies, and may help explain some of the puzzling line–strength anomalies seen in the integrated spectra of giant ellipticals.
