Foundations of Black Hole Accretion Disk Theory
However Devereux & Young (1990) and Devereux & Hameed (1997) have argued that young stars dominate the 40–120µm emission in all of these galaxies, so that the FIR emission directly traces the SFR.
Star Formation in Galaxies Along the Hubble Sequence
Similar comparisons can be made for the FIR properties of disk galaxies, and these show considerably weaker trends with Hubble type (Devereux & Young 1991, Tomita et al 1996, Devereux & Hameed 1997).
Star Formation in Galaxies Along the Hubble Sequence
This is illustrated in Figure 4, which shows the distributions of LF I R/LH from a sample of nearby galaxies studied by Devereux & Hameed (1997).
Star Formation in Galaxies Along the Hubble Sequence
In at least some early-type spirals, the strong FIR emission is produced by luminous, dusty star forming regions, usually concentrated in the central regions of barred spiral galaxies (Devereux 1987, Devereux & Hameed 1997).
Star Formation in Galaxies Along the Hubble Sequence
Adapted from Devereux & Hameed (1997), with el liptical and irregular galaxies excluded.
Star Formation in Galaxies Along the Hubble Sequence
Devereux & Hameed emphasize the importance of observing a sufficiently large and diverse sample of early-type galaxies, in order to fully characterize the range of star formation properties.
