    • The regulation of star formation in cool-core clusters: imprints on the stellar populations of brightest cluster galaxies 

      Loubser, S.I.; Babul, A.; Hoekstra, H.; Mahdavi, A.; Donahue, M. (Oxford University Press, 2016)
      A fraction of brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs) show bright emission in the ultraviolet and the blue part of the optical spectrum, which has been interpreted as evidence of recent star formation. Most of these results ...
    • Stellar population gradients in brightest cluster galaxies 

      Loubser, S.I.; Sánchez-Blázquez, P. (Oxford University Press, 2012)
      We present the stellar population and velocity dispersion gradients for a sample of 24 brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs) in the nearby Universe for which we have obtained high-quality long-slit spectra at the Gemini ...
    • Stellar populations in the centres of brightest cluster galaxies 

      Loubser, S.I.; Sánchez-Blázquez, P.; Sansom, A.E.; Soechting, I.K. (Oxford University Press, 2009)
      This paper is part of a series devoted to the study of the stellar populations in brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs), aimed at setting constraints on the formation and evolution of these objects. We have obtained high ...
    • The ultraviolet upturn in brightest cluster galaxies 

      Loubser, Susan Ilani; Sánchez-Blázquez, P. (Wiley, 2011)
      This paper is part of a series devoted to the investigation of a large sample of brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs), their properties and the relationships between these properties and the properties of the host clusters. ...
