Tidal Dwarf Galaxies Bonn 2009: Ghosts from structure formation
Title: Are ultra-compact dwarf galaxies signposts of past tidal interactions?
Date: Friday 29th May
Time: 15:45 - 16:15
Presentation file: talk_Mieske.pdf
I will review the evidence in favour and against the hypothesis that ultra- compact dwarf galaxies originate from star-cluster complexes created in the tidal tails of galaxy mergers. I will discuss whether as such, UCDs may be intimately linked to the formation of tidal dwarf galaxies.
