"The nuclei of nearby galaxies and their impact on galaxy evolution"
Marcus Seigar (JAC)
I will be presenting a combination of results from HST and
UKIRT on the centers of spiral galaxies and giant elliptical
galaxies. The HST data have revealed that bulges in early
type spiral galaxies have similar properties to those of
ellipttical galaxies, suggesting a common formation mechanism.
However, bulges in late type spiral galaxies seem to have
characteristics more common with their disks. I will also
present some near-infrared imaging data of giant elliptical
galaxies. These have revealed multiple nuclei structure
never seen before, dur to the excellent seeing conditions
in which they were taken. Their nuclear structure also
suggests that they form via major mergers of large cluster
Seminars are also held at JAC,
