The colour-magnitude relation and the formation of early-type galaxies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

The colour-magnitude relation provides important information on the formation and evolution of cluster galaxies. By looking into the evolution of the relation as a function of redshift and using the small colour scatter around the relation in Coma, we put constraints on the star formation history and the galaxy merging history of cluster early-type galaxies.
