Abstract:We have carried out an imaging survey for Local Group dwarf spheroidal galaxy Ursa Minor (UMi) using Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC) on the 8.2m Subaru Telescope. Wide and deep data obtained by HSC enable us to investigate the extent of UMi which is revealed to extend out to twice the nominal tidal radius. The fraction of binary systems is also investigated from the morphology of the main sequence and estimated to be ~0.4.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
