E+A galaxies (also known as k+a or a+k galaxies) have been thought to provide a link between star forming and quiescent galaxies. They can be identified as having deep balmer absorption lines, particularly showing strong Hd lines, and having no or very little [OII] emission (500km s-1. Their morphologies appear to be bulgeless and more irregular/distorted as opposed to those at lower s values (hase.
