Anomalously Blue Elliptical Galaxies in the Sloan Survey

Description:

This presentation discusses research on the characteristics of blue elliptical galaxies. This presentation explores star-forming systems, blue galaxies, and the origin of ellipticals. The authors will use the SDSS to search for blue ellipticals. SDSS will provide ID, redshifts, images, and spectra for up to a million galaxies. The authors will look for objects meeting the blueness and shape criteria.
