"Stars, gas and dust in ellipticals: the mass-metallicity relation in different galactic components"


I will present recent theoretical results on the formation and the high
redshift assembly of spheroids.
These findings have been obtained by utilising different and complementary
techniques: chemodynamical models offer great insight in the radial
abundance gradients in the stars; while state semi-analytic codes
implementing a detailed treatment of the chemical evolution allow an
exploration of the role of the galactic mass in shaping many observed
relations. The results will be shown by following the path represented by
the evolution of the mass-metallicity relation in stars, gas and dust. I
will show how, under a few sensible assumptions, it is possible to reproduce a
large number of observables ranging from the Xrays to the Infrared. I will also
present predictions on the evolution of both the metallicity gradients
and the mass-metallicity relation that can be verified by means of the
forthcoming observational facilities.
