Global Stellar Populations of Elliptical Galaxies: B. Ultraviolet Energy Distributions
Ultraviolet energy distributions have been derived from IUE spectra for 32 early-type galaxies, including 30 elliptical and SO galaxies. These are combined with V magnitudes, Mg2 indices and central velocity dispersions (σ) to investigate a) the degree of correspondence between optical and UV energy distributions and b) the intrinsic range of stellar population at a given luminosity among early-type galaxies.
