WebFOCUS Report
Project description
We conduct a systematic study of galactic bulges and disks in the nearby galaxies using the Spitzer space telescope observations, IFU-spectroscopy with MUSE, and wide field imaging observations with OmegaCAM, the instruments being attached at VLT and VST at the European Southern Observatory (ESO). The observations (structure, kinematics, stellar populations) are interpreted using N-body simulation models. The observations provide constrains for galaxy evolution models
