The Massive stellar Population at the Galactic Center

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.
