The main text (pp. -) is organized as follows. The current chapter (Chapter ) gives a general introduction to the thesis. Chapter gives background information necessary for the subsequent chapters. The topics covered include the Fundamental Plane and stellar population synthesis models. Chapter describes the sample selection and basic reductions for the HydraI photometry. Chapter describes the HydraI surface photometry and the standard calibration. Chapter describes the derivation of the global photometric parameters for the HydraI data. Chapter describes the HydraI spectroscopy. Chapter starts with a summary of the HydraI data and a presentation of the Coma data. Then the analysis is presented. Finally, in Chapter the conclusions are given.
The appendices (pp. -) are organized as follows. Appendix gives details of the basic reductions of the photometry. Appendix gives details of the surface photometry. Appendix describes the standard calibration of the photometry. Appendix lists the Coma data. Appendix shows images of the 35 fields on the sky in which the galaxies in the HydraI surface photometry sample are located. Finally, Appendix shows the HydraI surface photometry profiles (e.g. , and as function of radius).
Readers not interested in the data details can profitably read Chapter , skip Chapter -, and read Chapter -. The data used in the analysis will still be introduced in Sect. .
