1010), within a sky-projected distance of less than 700 kpc, and a relative line-of-sight radial velocity of less than ±700 km s−1. Part of the reason for this could perhaps be that the tidal features that are produced are not as spectacular as those in merging giant galaxies, due to the relatively weak tidal forces acting upon them. 2MASS produced an astronomical catalog with over 300 million observed objects, including minor planets of the Solar System, brown dwarfs, low-mass stars, nebulae, star clusters and galaxies. Additionally, we also use smaller apertures to measure the flux of the individual galaxies. Figure 1. Figure 5. In the ΛCDM cosmology (Spergel et al.

DataTypeset images: 1 2 3. First, we look for any signature of tidal features in the true color images. We believe that it makes physical sense that dwarf systems struggle to merge in the presence of a nearby giant galaxy. 2007; Tal et al. In these cases, we perform aperture photometry on the GALEX image, following the same procedure we used for the optical images. We derive the g and r-band magnitudes. Despite these detailed studies of a few intriguing examples, very little is known about whether these systems are representative of dwarf–dwarf interactions in general. In fact, a small number of the S15 galaxies can be found in common with this sample, although they follow the same trend as our sample (see Figure 6.). For this, we first create a sample of interacting dwarf galaxies based on a visual analysis of color images from the SDSS. (2012) concluded that early-type dwarf galaxies (106 < M* < 109) are extremely rare in the field. For example, dwarf galaxies with tidal features whose origins are unclear and are located near a giant (M* > 1010) host galaxy have been selectively removed. 2011) and the Legacy survey (Blum et al. The wide range of dwarf galaxy luminosity reveals the dependence of dwarf galaxy chemical evolution on galaxy stellar … Column (7): star formation rate. (2016), where their H i morphology was analyzed. produced by The Elixir System (Gwyn 2008). In the last column we provide the names of galaxies that we found in NED. From this figure, it is clear that the probability of finding a merging dwarf system increases in low-density environments. This may create a bias against merged dwarfs near giants; see the discussion in Section 6. Using an amateur 0.14-m aperture telescope, astronomers have observed a nearby spiral galaxy known as M63 (or NGC 5055). Bright 6, T.M. acknowledges support from the Center for Galaxy Evolution Research (No. 2012; Toloba et al. Dwarf–dwarf interactions might also be distinct from giant–giant interactions for another reason. Representative examples of the different morphological classes by which we categorize our merging dwarf galaxies. Since they are mostly star-forming, almost all are detected in FUV-band and NUV-band GALEX all-sky survey images. But we are keen to avoid including dwarfs that are interacting with a giant galaxy in this catalog. Since the SDSS data archive provides well calibrated and sky-background subtracted images, no further effort has been made in this regard. © 2018. Figure 3: WHAN diagram for the initial 102 dwarf galaxies with their median BPT spaxels classified as AGN/LINER. 1984) are mainly found in less dense environments. I\'ve run some of them like the Leo I, II and III. In this paper, we present a sample of interacting dwarf galaxy systems. However, because of our past experiences, we often suspect a particular origin according to the appearance of the observed low-surface-brightness tidal features. Sanjaya Paudel1, Rory Smith2, Suk Jin Yoon1, Paula Calderón-Castillo3, and Pierre-Alain Duc4, Published 2018 August 22 • The mission of the AAS is to enhance and share humanity's scientific understanding of the universe. Phase-space diagram of merging satellites. Figure 6. We use the equation (SFR(M⊙ yr−1) = 1.4 × 10−28 Lν(UV)(erg s−1 Hz−1) Kennicutt 1998). The shell features are mainly found outside of the main body of the galaxies. Additionally, we also search for the availability of deeper images in various publicly available archives. They are mostly gas-rich and star-forming systems, located in low-density environments. It is not surprising that this sample is somewhat biased toward the brighter end of our stellar mass cut. We further classify these objects according to the morphologies of their tidal features, mainly grouping them into three categories: interacting, shell, and tidal tail features. Figure 8 reveals the relation between the H i mass fraction and stellar mass of the star-forming galaxies. (2002). Numbers have also been assigned for the other galaxies, although for those galaxies not in the original PGC catalogue, it is not recommended to use that number as a name.[2]. 2012; Rich et al. The origin of the different dwarf galaxy types and the possible evolutionary links between them are the subject of much research and debate (Lisker 2009). Also, there is UM 448, a merging BCD, which possesses a pronounced tidal tail that was studied in James et al. For the aperture photometry, procedures similar to those applied for the SDSS images are used. The last gray bar represents the number of merging dwarf systems that have more than 10 neighbor galaxies. Tidal tail (T): simply defined as the presence of amorphous tidal features, mostly tidal streams or plumes, which cannot be placed into the above classifications, e.g., Id08092137. acknowledges the support by the Samsung Science & Technology Foundation under Project Number SSTF-BA1501-0. (2017), and lies in a similar region in phase-space. (2009). A plethora of observational studies now support the conclusion that mergers between galaxies are frequent phenomena. We provide basic properties, such as sky-position, redshift, stellar mass, and SFR. However, for dwarf galaxies, a 10 km s−1 velocity dispersion can make a significant contribution to the internal dynamics.
Methods: As a first step we used the SExtractor fine-tuned for dwarf galaxy detection, to find galaxies from the FDS data, covering a 26 deg 2 area of the main cluster up to its virial radius, and the area around the Fornax A substructure. Therefore, we believe our sample will be more complete for these kinds of objects, as long as the interacting pairs show similar low-surface-brightness features as presented by our sample. It works to advance physics research, application and education; and engages with policy makers and the public to develop awareness and understanding of physics. Top: examples where we conclude a dwarf galaxy is interacting with and being deformed by the tidal field of a nearby giant galaxy and they have been excluded from the catalog. By Evan N. Kirby, Puragra Guhathakurta, Joshua D. Simon, Marla C. Geha, Constance M. Rockosi, Christopher Sneden, Judith G. Cohen, Sangmo Tony Sohn, Steven R. Majewski and Michael Siegel. However, in Figure 6 we found no evidence for an enhanced SFR in our merging dwarf systems compared to a sample of local-volume, star-forming galaxies. Only a portion of this table is shown here to demonstrate its form and content. 2003) or dwarf irregulars (dIrs, Gallagher et al. Previously in 2011, Reines and her colleagues used VLA to discover the first massive black hole in a dwarf starburst galaxy in 2011. 2010-0027910) through the NRF of Korea and from the Yonsei University Observatory—KASI Joint Research Program (2018). It is clear from this figure that our satellite merging dwarf systems are located comparatively farther than the distance of the LMC–SMC system is from the Milky Way (MW). The comparison samples are early-type galaxies (gray square) and BCDs (green dots) taken from Janz & Lisker (2009) and Meyer et al. UGC 7639 is an example of blue dwarf galaxy whose global properties are well matched by our multiwavelength approach, that is, a suitable approach to highlight the evolution also of these galaxies as a class. Background. How might these properties affect the interaction compared to their giant counterparts? The phase-space diagram also reveals that there is no special difference between satellite interacting dwarf pairs (shown as empty circle symbols) and the rest of the sample, which have likely already merged (shown as a black dot), as indicated by their locations on their phase-space diagrams. As the right panel of Figure 7 indicates, the relative line-of-sight velocity between the interacting dwarf pairs is relatively low, and only in two cases is it higher than 100 km s−1. A total of 131,601 names from the 38 most common sources are listed. For this work, we adopt a standard cosmological model with the following parameters: H0 = 71 km s−1 Mpc−1, Ωm = 0.3, and ΩΛ = 0.7. (2014) already pointed out that Id10080227 is a compact elliptical galaxy (cE Chilingarian 2009), located in isolation, that may have formed through the merging of dwarf galaxies. Nevertheless, the range of stellar mass coverage is of the order of 3 mag, with a median value of log(M*/M⊙) = 9.1. A subset of this sample was studied in Pearson et al. The presence of a shell feature in the Fornax dwarf spheroidal has also been interpreted as a relic of a recent merger (Coleman et al. 100 dwarf galaxies in the Local Group for which D < 3Mpc. In contrast, in this work we first aim to present a large catalog of merging dwarf systems, which will be helpful for a detailed study of various properties of interacting/merging dwarf galaxies in the future. Among 41 satellite merging systems, there are 19 "I" class systems (interacting dwarf pairs) where we identify ongoing interaction between dwarf galaxies. The classifications of morphological features are given in column 9. We present the result of aperture photometry in Table 1. Meanwhile, an S-shaped elongated stellar envelope is likely to be produced by tidal stretching from a nearby giant galaxy (Paudel et al. They are mostly from single-dish observations, and we expect that a typical beam size of 3', like the Arecibo telescope, would be sufficient to entirely cover the interacting dwarf galaxies; these observations therefore must be considered measurements for the total, combined system. If you have a user account, you will need to reset your password the next time you login. While doing so, unrelated background and foreground objects were masked manually. Figure 3. Optical color–magnitude relation. There are three dwarf galaxies (Id0202-0922, Id1448-0342, Id14503534) that can be considered dwarf analogs to the Antennae system (NGC 4038/4039). 2016). In addition to this, prominent shell features (e.g., NGC 747 or NGC 7600) are also commonly observed in giant elliptical galaxies (Duc et al. Figure 10. Much work has been done to understand the physical processes driving galaxy evolution in the mergers of massive galaxies. Using an Hα equivalent width threshold of 2.8 Å, the final sample of AGN dwarf galaxies is reduced to 37. The field of view and color stretching are arbitrarily chosen to make the best view of both interacting galaxies and low-surface brightness features. A dwarf analog of the famous Antennae system (NGC 4038/NGC 4039) is represented by "A" (for Antennae e.g., Id0202-0922). Column (8): H i mass. For the rest of the physical parameters that we present in this work, values are given for the total system (e.g., magnitudes, g − r colors, stellar masses, and star formation rates (SFRs)). Interestingly, all three early-type merging dwarfs are located at large sky-projected distances from the giant galaxies, beyond 700 kpc. Accepted 2018 July 18 2009; Duc et al. If this is the case, one might expect the progenitors of some dEs to exhibit characteristic features that arise during mergers, such as tidal debris. XXII. SDSS catalog of stars in the Draco dwarf spheroidal galaxy Heather A. Rave1, Chongshan Zhao1, Heidi Jo Newberg1,BrianYanny2, Donald P. Schneider3,J.Brinkmann4,DonQ.Lamb5 ... the Draco dwarf spheroidal galaxy. The blue dots represent interacting dwarfs. We now turn to the surrounding environment of our merging dwarf systems. However, note that this magnitude cutoff is only to select the parent sample and we apply a further stellar mass constrain to select the final sample. The next papers in this series draw conclusions on the chemical evolution, gas dynamics, and star Formation histories from the catalog presented here. 2012; Johnson 2013; Nidever et al. For comparison, we also plot data from Lee et al. Star-forming objects may be preferentially selected because of the criterion to have a redshift, and it is easy to measure the redshifts from the emission lines of star-forming galaxies than from the absorption lines of non star-forming galaxies. 2013; Amorisco et al. These postage images are prepared from fits images downloaded from various archives. For many galaxies (146 out of 177), we found there were GALEX all-sky survey observations available (Martin et al. (2017) (e.g., Id09381942, Id10354614, Id12464814). The coaddition provides higher signal-to-noise (S/N) than the single-band images. 2004; Giovanelli et al. The Catalogue of Principal Galaxies (PGC) is an astronomical catalog published in 1989 that lists B1950 and J2000 equatorial coordinates and cross-identifications for 73,197 galaxies. Both observations and numerical simulations concur that massive elliptical galaxies were likely formed predominantly by the mergers of disk galaxies (Springel et al. In the low-mass regime, a detailed study of interacting systems has been exceptionally rare.
