    • Investigating the star formation histories of the brightest cluster galaxies 

      Groenewald, D.N.; Loubser, S.I. (Oxford University Press, 2014)
      This article is devoted to the study of the central stellar populations of the brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs). High signal-to-noise ratio, long-slit spectra for a sample of 39 galaxies were fitted against two stellar ...
    • Mg2 gradients as a signature of brightest cluster galaxy evolution 

      Loubser, Susan Ilani; Sánchez-Blázquez, P. (Wiley, 2011)
      We have fitted the Mg2 absorption index gradients for 21 brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs), in the nearby Universe, for which we have obtained high signal-to-noise ratio, long-slit spectra on the Gemini telescopes. This ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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. ...
