Structure and kinematics of edge-on galaxy discs - V. The dynamics of stellar discs

Kregel, M; van der Kruit, P C; Freeman, Kenneth

Description

In earlier papers in this series we determined the intrinsic stellar disc kinematics of 15 intermediate- to late-type edge-on spiral galaxies using a dynamical modelling technique. The sample covers a substantial range in maximum rotation velocity and deprojected face-on surface brightness, and contains seven spirals with either a boxy or peanut-shaped bulge. Here we discuss the structural, kinematical and dynamical properties. From the photometry we find that intrinsically more flattened discs...[Show more]
