Morphological Classification of Luminous Infrared Galaxies in GOALS

William Meynardie
Luminous Infrared Galaxies (LIRGs) are massive starbursts, typically composed of two or more galaxies at some stage of a galaxy merger. LIRGs dominate the infrared luminosity density at high redshift, so studying nearby LIRGs can give us insight into galaxies at high redshift. We analyze HST ACS/WFC images of a sample of 56 LIRGs by computing their Gini coefficient and M_20 value at F435W (B-band) and F814W (I-band), and we use these results to classify...
