[9.08] Structural Paramaters of Stellar Clusters in the Small Magellanic Cloud

A. Hill, D. Zaritsky (Steward Observatory, University of Arizona)

We present the results of King model fits to the V-band luminosity profiles of stellar clusters in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC). The data come from the the Magellanic Clouds Photometric Survey and enable us to study clusters over a 4 by 4 degree region of the SMC. We discuss how these measurements lead to a better understanding of the formation and evolution of clusters.
