Nuker law parameters of early-type galaxies

DOI

We combine several HST investigations on the central structure of early-type galaxies to generate a large sample of surface photometry. The studies selected were those that used the "Nuker law" to characterize the inner light distributions of the galaxies. The sample comprises WFPC1 and WFPC2 V-band observations published earlier by our group, R-band WFPC2 photometry of Rest et al. (2001AJ....121.2431R), NICMOS H-band photometry by Ravindranath et al. (2001AJ....122..653R) and Quillen et al. (2000ApJS..128...85Q), and the brightest cluster galaxy WFPC2 I-band photometry of Laine et al. (2003, Cat. J/AJ/125/478).
