Abstract

We investigate the connection between globular clusters and ultracompact dwarf galaxies (UCDs) by examining the properties of 10 compact, high-luminosity (-11.8 less than or similar to M-V less than or similar to -10.8) objects associated with M87 ( NGC 4486, VCC 1316), the cD galaxy in the Virgo Cluster. These objects, most of which were...More
