The Near-Infrared Imaging of the Andromeda Galaxy
The Andromeda Galaxy (M31) is an ideal target for detailed studies of galaxy structure and tests of stellar population models. This thesis presents deep Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope WIRCam near-infrared J- and Ks-band ...
Investigating the Spectral Energy Distribution within the Dwarf Irregular Galaxy IC 10
We present new submillimetre images of the dwarf irregular galaxy IC 10, taken with the Submillimeter Bolometer Common-User Array, mounted on the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope. Combining this new data with archival data ...
Physical properties of a complete volume-limited sample of Ap/Bp stars: Magnetic. rotational, multiplicity, and evolutionary properties of magnetic intermediate-mass stars within 100 pc of the sun
The population of all magnetic chemically peculiar stars (Ap stars) within 100 parsecs of the sun has been identified and investigated, determining fundamental parameters, rotational properties, and magnetic field ...
The Dynamical Properties of Virgo Cluster Galaxies
By virtue of its proximity, the Virgo Cluster is an ideal laboratory for us to test our understanding of the formation of structure in our Universe. In this spirit, we present a dynamical study of 33 gas-poor and 34 gas-rich ...
Stellar Mass and Population Diagnostics of Cluster Galaxies
We conduct a broad investigation about stellar mass and population diagnostics in order to formulate novel constraints related to the formation and evolution of galaxies from a nearby cluster environment. Our work is ...
Constraining the Limits of the Magnetic Confinement-Rotation Diagram: An Analysis of Two B-type Systems Hosting Recently Discovered Extreme Centrifugal Magnetospheres
Following the detection in the late 70s of a strong magnetic field in the early B-type star sigma Ori E and, more recently with the results of the Magnetism In MassivE Stars (MiMeS) survey, an important and rare subclass ...
