NED Abstract

Copyright by American Institute of Physics. 1994ARep...38....3S The Metallicity of Elliptical Galaxies O.K. Sil'chenko Sternberg Astrnomical Institute, Universitetski, pr 13, Moscow, 119899 Russia Received February 2, 1993 Abstract - From the results of observations with the 6-meter telescope, the metallicities of the nuclei of 30 elliptical galaxies were determined, A linear metallicity-absolute magnitude relation was derived whose slope agrees with the one previously obtained from the color- luminosity correlation. Our relation completely joins the similar relation for dwarf spheroidal galaxies. Individual deviations of galaxies from this relation correlate with the isophote-form parameter in the galaxies with "box-like" isophotes, a metal excess is observed.
