[93.15] Models of the Energetics and X-ray Emission of Dwarf Irregular Galaxy IC1613

R. Jervey (Lycoming College), E. Wilcots (University of Wisconsin - Madison)

IC1613 is a nearby dwarf irregular galaxy with much supernova and stellar formation activity. This makes it an ideal place to study stellar feedback. In this study we focused on modeling energy transfers between supernovae and star formation, and comparing the results of our modeling to new radio data from the Kitt Peak 3.5mm WIYN telescope. We present estimates of the total energy input into IC1613, and models of the energy transfer. Assuming a significant fraction of the energy is radiated in the X-ray bandpass, we predict the X-ray emission flux of IC1613 that could be detected by the Chandra X-ray Observatory.

This research was part of the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisconsin.
