Najarro, F., De la Fuente, D., Geballe, T. R., Figer, D. F., Hillier, D. J. 2017. The Massive stellar Population at the Galactic Center. Lives and Death Throes of Massive Stars, 329th Symposium of the International-Astronomical-Union (IAU) 12, 287-291, DOI: 10.1017/S1743921317003076
We present results from our ongoing infrared spectroscopic studies of the massive stellar content at the Center of the Milky Way. This region hosts a large number of apparently isolated massive stars as well as three of the most massive resolved young clusters in the Local Group. Our survey seeks to infer the presence of a possible top-heavy recent star formation history and to test massive star formation channels : clusters vs isolation.
