Sizes of galactic globular clusters.


Abstract (from CDS):

A study is made of deviations from the mean power-law relationship between the Galactocentric distances and the half-light radii of Galactic globular clusters. Surprisingly, deviations from the mean Rh versus Rgcrelationship do not appear to correlate with cluster luminosity, cluster metallicity, or horizontal-branch morphology. Differences in orbit shape are found to contribute to the scatter in the Rh versus Rgcrelationship of Galactic globular clusters.
