Kinematics of luminous blue compact galaxies
2001 (English)In: Astrophysics and Space Science, 433- p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We present results from a Fabry-Perot study of the Hα velocity fields and morphologies of a sample of luminous blue compact galaxies. We estimate masses from photometry and kinematics and show that many of these BCGs are not rotationally supported. Mergers or strong interactions appear to be the triggering mechanism of the extreme starbursts seen in these galaxies.
