1994ApJ...425...43R THE FLATTENING DISTRIBUTION OF DWARF ELLIPTICAL GALAXIES IN THE VIRGO CLUSTER BARBARA S. RYDEN AND DONALD M. TERNDRUP Department of Astronomy, The Ohio State University, 174 West 18th Avenue, Columbus, OH 43210 Received 1993 August 6; accepted 1993 October 13 ABSTRACT We have obtained R-band surface photometry of 70 dwarf elliptical galaxies in the Virgo Cluster. We find, in contrast to the results of earlier studies, that the dwarfs have a markedly flatter distribution of ellipticities than either "normal" elliptical galaxies or brightest cluster ellipticals. The ensemble of nucleated dwarfs is rounder than the non-nucleated galaxies. Neither the nucleated nor the nonnucleated dwarfs, however, have distributions as round as giant ellipticals Subject headings: galaxies: clusters (Virgo) - galaxies: elliptical and lenticular, cD - galaxies: photometry - galaxies: structure
