GA: The internal structure of clusters in the Magellanic Clouds – Rodríguez J.
April 22 @ 11:15 am – 11:30 am CMT
The analysis of the internal structure of star clusters can provide us important information about their formation and dynamic evolution. Using data from the VISCACHA survey, we studied the spatial distribution of the stars in clusters located at the peripheries of the Large Magellanic Cloud and the Small Magellanic Cloud. We characterized their internal structure through the construction of the corresponding minimum spanning trees. In each case, we used m, s and Q parameters to distinguish between radial symmetry, homogeneous or substructured distributions. The dependence of the obtained parameters with field stellar contamination and with the different characteristics of the clusters, such as their dynamical ages and spatial distribution, was also investigated.
