  1. 1. Molecular observations of obscured galaxy nuclei

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Niklas Falstad; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Galaxies: nuclei; Galaxies: ISM; Infrared: galaxies; ISM: Molecules; Submillimeter: galaxies;

    Abstract : It is becoming evident that some (ultra)luminous infrared galaxies ((U)LIRGs) contain compact obscured nuclei (CONs) where luminosities in excess of 10^9 L☉  emerge from inside dusty regions smaller than 100 pc in diameter. Due to the obscured nature of these objects, their inner regions are hidden from examination using optical or infrared lines. READ MORE

  2. 2. Water and hydroxyl in luminous infrared galaxies: Spectroscopic observations and modelling

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Niklas Falstad; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ISM: molecules; Galaxies: individual: Zw 049.057; Line: formation; Galaxies: ISM; Submillimeter: galaxies; Infrared: galaxies;

    Abstract : Many luminous infrared galaxies (LIRGs) contain compact obscured nuclei (CONs) where luminosities in excess of 10^9 Lsun emerge from inside dusty regions smaller than 100 pc in diameter. Due to the obscuring material in these regions, the nature of the nuclear power source cannot be determined using direct observations in the optical or IR. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the Escape of Lyman Radiation from Local Galaxies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Elisabet Leitet; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Galaxies; starbursts; spiral galaxies; Lyman continuum; Lyman alpha; leakage; cosmic reionization; escape fraction; Astronomy; Astronomi;

    Abstract : Cosmic reionization was most likely initiated by star forming dwarf galaxies. Little is known about the physical mechanisms allowing ionizing Lyman continuum (LyC) photons to escape from galaxies, but to learn more we can study local galaxies in detail. READ MORE

  4. 4. Investigating the origin of radio emission in nearby starburst galaxies via high-resolution metre and centimetre observations

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Eskil Varenius; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; galaxies: individual: M 82; galaxies: starburst; galaxies: individual: Arp 220; stars: supernovae; galaxies: individual: NGC 4418; radio continuum: galaxies; techniques: high angular resolution;

    Abstract : Star formation and galaxy evolution are intimately linked together. A detailed understanding of the physics of star formation can help us explain how galaxies evolve into, for example, our present Milky Way. READ MORE

  5. 5. Quasar host galaxies at intermediate and high redshifts

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Uppsala Astronomiska Observatorium

    Author : Eva Örndahl; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Astronomy; Active galaxies; Quasars; Host galaxies; Imaging; Photometry; Magnitudes; Colours; Morphology; Statistical methods; High-redshift; Infrared; Astronomi; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Astronomy and astrophysics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Astronomi och astrofysik; Theoretical Astrophysics; teoretisk astrofysik;

    Abstract : Quasars form one of the most energetic phenomena in the universe, and can be traced out to very large redshifts. By studying the galaxies which host the active nuclei, important insights can be gained into the processes that trigger and maintain the quasar powerhouse. READ MORE
