Color distributions in E-S0 galaxies. I. Frequency and importance of dust patterns for various brands of E classified galaxies.


Abstract (from CDS):

From the consideration of a sample of color distributions in 67 E classified objects of the Local Supercluster, it is found that local dust features are much more frequent and important in disky E's than boxy E's. The subclass of undeterminate objects, those which cannot be assigned to the diE or boE groups, is intermediate. Subsets of objects of common properties are considered from the point of view of local dust features occurrence: giant boxy E's; minor boxy E's with rotational support; compact dwarfs; SB0-like E's. It is noted that the detection of dust features is more than twice less frequent in Virgo cluster ellipticals than in the full sample, but the significance of this result is not clear.
