    Diffuse Matter from Star Forming Regions to Active Galaxies: A Volume Honouring John Dyson and those where the lines of AGNs form. The reviews complement one another and together provide a coherent introduction to the astrophysics of diffuse sources suitable for postgraduate students and researchers in astrophysics. Individual reviews stand Format: Hardcover. We restrict our analysis to galaxies with H-alpha emission-line equivalent widths greater than 30 A (in order to avoid systematic errors in the measured line ratios caused by underlying stellar absorption lines). This subsample consists mostly of normal star-forming galaxies of middle to late Hubble type. Absorption L-lines of iron ions are observed, in absorption, in spectra of Seyfert 1 galaxies by the new generation of X-ray satellites: Chandra (NASA) and XMM-Newton (ESA). Lines associated to Fe 23+ to Fe 17+ are well resolved. Whereas, those corresponding to Fe 16+ to Fe 6+ are by: 3. The Theory of QSO Absorption Line Systems and Their Relationship to Galaxies The fundamental goal of this effort is to paint a picture of what the Lya forest clouds are and how they are distributed in space. Progress during the first phase of this program involved development of the "Cheshire Cat Model" of Lya clouds in which systems over.

Absorption and Emission Lines Photons with eV of energy are absorbed, leaving an absorption line. Now we can start making the connection between the peaks and valleys we see in a star's spectrum and the energy levels of the star's atoms. stellar mass, metallicity, dust content and SFR for star-forming galaxies in the SDSS.

We derive metallicity and dust attenuation by analyzing metal absorption lines and the continuum shape of the integrated stellar population.

Our analysis is based on fitting stacked spectra with stel-lar population synthesis models. This approach is com. the association of metals with galaxies (), and coronal gas in the Milky Way halo (20). The high sensitivity of COS enables a QSO absorption-line survey of halos around galaxies with a predetermined set of properties.

We have selected 42 sample galaxies (Tables S1 and S2) that span redshifts z gal =stellar masses log(M =M) = 9. Elliptical Galaxy Spectra Elliptical galaxy spectra are characterized by strong absorption lines, due to metals in the stellar atmospheres of the low luminosity stellar population.

We see few to no emission lines ([OII]A and/or [NII]A are occasionally present), as there are essentially no young stars. The absolute strengths of the emission lines depend on various parameters, of which star formation rate (SFR) is the most important - galaxies with ceased star formation show very few emission lines.

When an electron recombines with a hydrogen nucleus, it loses energy and gives off a photon (you might recognize this as the opposite of what happens in absorption lines from the Spectral Types project).

The HII spectral line is in the red part of the spectrum, so HII regions in galaxies have. Probing galaxies through quasar absorption lines.

1) QSO absorption line background and jargon • QSO absorption line text book in preparation by Chris Churchill (fairly complete draft at ) Constant replenishment of gas in star-forming galaxies supported by lack of mass evolution on the blue cloud.

If metal-line systems occur only where the line of sight to a QSO intercepts a galaxy, we already have information on many hundreds of galaxies at redshifts greater than unity. Here we review research on the connection between galaxies and absorption line systems seen in QSO : Arlin P. Crotts. In some galaxies (e.g., NGC and NGC ), the low-excitation absorption feature covers a velocity range matching that of medium-excitation H 2 O emission lines, while in some other galaxies (e.g., M82) the absorption feature occurs at a velocity that does not show emission in other by: 9.

Poggianti & Wu present detections of the H δ absorption line for a sample of IRAS-selected galaxies (L FIR > 5 × 10 11 L ⊙) at z This far-infared-bright sample is dominated by star-forming galaxies, and over 60% show evidence of ongoing interactions or by: I probe the lower redshift end of the Redshift Desert with a study of Fe ii and Mg ii features in the rest-frame near-UV spectrum of 96 star-forming galaxies in the redshift range 1 line profile trends with stellar mass and reddening.

We then discuss insights from metal absorption lines into reionisation-era galaxies and their surroundings. Current observations suggest a buildup of metals in the circumgalactic environments of galaxies over z ~ 6 to 5, although changes in ionisation will also affect the evolution of metal line properties.

A substantial fraction of metal. Extreme starbursts in young galaxies. Finding star-forming galaxies in the distant universe has primarily relied on deep images and colour selection to identify the galaxies. Recent observations have found a population of galaxies that have more unusual characteristics in the form of extremely strong emission lines.

The Formation and Evolution of Galaxies research line aims: 1) to survey the 3D structure of the Milky Way and resolve stellar populations in its Globular Cluster system, its satellite galaxies, and in other nearby Galaxies as a way to confirm models of galaxy formation in various cosmological scenarios.

The metal and hydrogen absorption features in the artificial spectra closely resemble observed systems over a wide range in HI column density. Detailed predictions of the column density as a function of impact parameter to protogalactic clumps are presented for HI,CII,CIV,SiIV,NV and by: 6.

Once reactions in the core of a star have created iron, no more energy-producing reactions can occur and the core violently collapses in on itself. Protons and electrons merge to form neutrons which halt the collapse of the core (and now its called neutron star).

The fraction of ionizing photons escaping from high-redshift star-forming galaxies is a key obstacle in evaluating whether galaxies were the primary agents of cosmic reionization.

We previously proposed using the covering fraction of low-ionization gas, measured via deep absorption-line spectroscopy. Thoroughly revised, expanded and updated throughout,this new edition of Astrophysics of Gaseous Nebulae and Active Galactic Nuclei is a graduate-level text and reference book on gaseous nebulae,nova and supernova remnants, and the emission-line regions in Seyfert galaxies,radio galaxies, quasars, and other types of active galactic nuclei.

All these aspects, in addition to the intense optical emission lines (Heckman & Balick ) and the very high IR luminosity (L IR 3 x 10 10 L; Telesco & Gatley ), place NGC among the most luminous star-forming galaxies. The most intense and youngest burst is taking place in the ``jumbo'' H II region, situated 15" southwest of the.

We present results from Chandra ACIS-I and Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array 6 cm continuum observations of the IRAS + massive star-forming region. We detect X-ray sources within the 17′ × 17′ ACIS-I field, and a total of 13 radio sources within the 9.′2 primary beam at GHz. Unlike spiral galaxies such as the Milky Way, the majority of the stars in massive elliptical galaxies were formed in a short period early in the history of the Universe.

The duraCited by: aim of this research is to stress the importance of star-forming galaxies as tools to perform cosmology with the new generation of wide-field spectroscopic surveys.
