A Search for Wolf-Rayet Stars in Giant Extragalactic Bursts of Star Formation

  • Alison W. Campbell (a1) and Linda J. Smith (a2)

Extract

It is well known that some giant extragalactic star-forming regions contain WR stars. D'Odorico, Massey, Rosa and coworkers found many examples in nearby galaxies of giant HII regions whose spectra show that they contain WN, and occasionally, WC stars. The dwarf emission-line galaxies He 2–10 (Allen et al. 1976) and Tol 3 (Kunth & Sargent 1981) have a strong broad emission feature near HeII 4686Å; in the latter object ∼150 WN stars are required to explain the observed equivalent width.
