AuthorsSmith, Beverly J.; Giroux, Mark L.; Struck, Curtis; Hancock, Mark
AbstractWe have used the Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) ultraviolet telescope to study stellar populations and star formation morphology in a well-defined sample of 42 nearby optically selected pre-merger interacting galaxy pairs. Galaxy interactions were likely far more common in the early universe than in the present; thus our study provides a nearby well-resolved comparison sample for high-redshift studies. We have com ...
