Project: A study of the dynamical structure of highly flattened elliptical galaxies.
- project duration
- 31-DEC-99 – 31-DEC-99
- Dynamical analysis of elliptical galaxies is usually done under the hypothesis of near-sphericity. In Ghent, a method has been developed to study such galaxies in more general geometries. The project comprises the set-up of a database observation (photometry - spectroscopy) and dynamical modeling.
