Infrared studies of the structure of the galaxy
Ruelas-Mayorga, R. A
A simple three-component model of the Galaxy is presented. The Galaxy is
represented by (1) a disk whose stellar density decreases exponentially with
distance from the galactic centre as well as perpendicularly as a function
of height above or below the galactic plane; plus a (2) ring with a radius of
R₀sin25 kpc considered to be an enhancement of the disk and finally by (3)
an oblate de Vaucouleurs spheroid meant to represent the galactic bulge.
The absorbing material is also assumed to...[Show more]
