A new scenario for globular cluster color bimodality and its implication for host galaxy formation

Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


In this contribution, I briefly introduce a new scenario for well-known color bimodality found in extragalactic globular cluster (GC) systems and show that it gives a simple, cohesive explanation for the key observations. The implication of the results is discussed in the context of the formation of GC systems and their parent galaxies.
