Seeking good merger-fit samples
« on: April 03, 2010, 11:26:53 pm »
I have a public talk on galaxy interactions coming up in a couple of weeks. To illustrate Merger Zoo, I'd like to feature Zoo applications (surprise!). I would be interested in getting some screenshots of nice image/simulation comparisons to give concrete examples, so if people would like to post good examples, here, I'll gleefully grab them. (Thinking back, it's shocking how much effort a student of ours put in the early 1990s into an application that would do that comparison interactively simply from flat-disk simulations. Computing marches on!)

;D ;D

By screenshots, you mean stuff grabbed while classifying? And by comparisons, you mean Galaxy Wars? I'm hoping not the latter . . .

No, the Merger Zoo comparisons between real and computed galaxies.

Have you checked out the gallery that was recently put up on Merger Zoo?  Some very nice examples there, but if you need more...  ;D

That was just what I was thinking Quialiss. It's a fab gallery, there are great examples there. Hope your talk goes well. It would be great to watch/listen to it, please will you let us know if it gets posted

I think I read on twitter that you had done your talk. How did it go? Has it been posted anywhere?
Hope it went well.  :)
