Sébastien Viaene, Ghent. A game of light and shadows in Andromeda
Andromeda, our dearest neighbour galaxy, has many different faces depending on the observed wavelength. We have combined data ranging from the ultra-violet to millimeter wavelengths. I will present a study linking the stellar emission in M31 with the dark shadows cast by interstellar dust. We have constructed a detailed 3D radiative transfer model of Andromeda, exposing the galaxy at all inclination angles. I will discuss the different dust heating sources and the internal energy balance of the galaxy. Finally, we look for possible probes to estimate the dominating heating sources in galaxies.
