(2005) derived for Sb galaxy NGC 3982 the dispersion anisotropy σz/σR= 0.73. Dynamical models with a specific phase density distribution have the advantage that velocity dispersion anisotropy can be calculated directly. In this section, we calculate the velocity curve (i.e. The lagging distance is the distance that is moved by the vehicle in a time period ‘t’ at a velocity of ‘v’ in m/s. In addition, in different components, velocity dispersions or rotation may dominate. Our ratios are radially elongated; the ratios by Emsellem et al. — An approximation for cool stellar discs (random motions are small when compared with rotation) has been developed by Amendt & Cudderford (1991). ... or normal to the line of sight from observer to the centre of mass of the system. This is in agreement with the decrease of dispersion ratios due to the decrease of the role of interactions with molecular clouds at greater galactocentric distances (see Jenkins & Binney 1990). From equation (26), we can determine z20 as. The filled circles – observations, the solid line – model, the dashed lines – models for components (n – the nucleus, b – the bulge, h – the metal-poor halo, d – the disc). 11, calculated line-of-sight dispersions parallel to the minor-axis are given. Line-of-sight velocity is normally calculated from the Doppler effect on the body's spectrum, a redshift indicating a receding body (taken as a positive velocity) and a blueshift indicating an approaching body (taken as negative). They will then compare the dynamical mass of the galaxy to the mass of … 1, lower panel) as functions of the galactocentric distance. • Compute both profiles and plot them on the same velocity scale. The shape of the line-of-sight velocity distribution (LOSVD) is measured for a sample of 14 elliptical galaxies, predominantly low-luminosity ellipticals. In their modelling of the local Milky Way structure, they derived that at 0 < z < 600 pc and 6.8 < R < 8.8 kpc, the inclination of the velocity dispersion ellipsoid is less than z/R, and they studied the corresponding correction in detail. (1997) obtained for the bulge region the metallicity Z= 0.03 and the age 11 Gyr. In the case of spherical systems with biaxial velocity dispersion ellipsoids, such models have been constructed, for example, by Binney & Mamon (1982), Merritt (1985), Gerhard (1991) and Tremaine et al. Kuijken & Gilmore 1989; Merrifield 1991). (1994, 1996). Calculate the distance to the star cluster. On the other hand, Emsellem et al. The position of foci z0 is at present a free parameter, which must be determined within the modelling process. (c) Copyright Oxford University Press, 2013. Ignoring the effect of satellite clock errors that can be easily compensated, the receiver-generated frequency is . Taking into account relation between spherical and cylindrical coordinates, the behaviour of the dispersion ratios as a function of R and z near the galactic plane is in approximate accordance (dispersion ratios by Copin et al. Rotation velocities of stars and line-of-sight velocity dispersion profile along the major-axis in very good seeing conditions (0.2–0.4 arcsec) for the central regions were obtained by Kormendy et al. The summation index i designates four visible components. The mean deviation of the model from the observations of surface brightnesses is 〈μobs−μmodel〉= 0.16 mag. The inclination angle of the galaxy is known and the spatial luminosity distribution can be calculated directly with deprojection. Rotational properties of elliptical and Sa galaxies are too different to compare the ratios σθ/σR. From:  The total number of free parameters (degrees of freedom) in least-squares approximation was 18; the number of observational points was 231. The sample is dom-inated by galaxies in the Virgo cluster but also contains ellipticals in nearby groups and low density environments. Knowing spatial luminosity densities of the components li(a) and ascribing an M/L to each component fi (i indexes the nucleus, the bulge, the disc and the stellar metal-poor halo), we have spatial mass-density distribution of a galaxy: [ρDM(a) is the DM density]. In our earlier multicomponent models (see Tenjes, Haud & Einasto 1994, 1998; Einasto & Tenjes 1999), we approximated flat components with pure rotation models and spheroidal components with dispersion-dominating kinematics. This corresponds to GCs at average distances 5–10 kpc from the galactic centre and is in rather good agreement with the dispersions calculated from the model. Variations of the corrections with R and z are qualitatively similar. Assuming some similarity between S0 and Sa galaxies, it is interesting to compare the derived velocity dispersion behaviour outside the galactic plane. biased due to the drift rate, , of the … 6). We would like to thank the anonymous referee for useful comments and suggestions that helped to improve this paper. In this paper, we develop an algorithm allowing to calculate line‐of‐sight velocity dispersions in an axisymmetric galaxy outside the galactic plane. When constructing a self-consistent model, we take into account the galactic surface brightness distribution, stellar rotation curve and velocity dispersions. 3. As in our model we have several components, we must sum over all components considering the luminosity-distribution profile. Only the last two measured points at a cut 50 arcsec perpendicular to the major-axis deviate rather significantly when compared to the model. However, disc thickness can be easily reduced to q= 0.15–0.2 when taking the galactic inclination angle to be δ= 82°–83° instead of 84°. The angle of inclination has been taken 84°. 7 Problems. The sample is dominated by galaxies in the Virgo cluster but also contains ellipticals in nearby groups and low-density environments. All test results were in accordance with our physical expectations. The model parameters q, a0, L and N for the bulge and the disc, and L for the nucleus and the halo were determined by a subsequent least-squares approximation process. However, the structure of real galaxies is rather complicated – galaxies consist of several stellar populations with different density distributions and different ellipticities. The filled circles – observations, the solid line – model, the dashed lines – models for components. (1984). To construct a dynamical model in the following sections, a DM component – the dark halo – must be added to visible components. Dressler A. Faber S. M. Grillmair C. Kormendy J. Lauer T. R..

Derived in the present model, bulge parameters can be used to compare them with the results of chemical evolution models. Designating Θ as the angle between the line of sight and the galactic disc, the line-of-sight dispersion σ2l is. (1994, 1998). However, we did not analyse I and H colours and ionized gas kinematics in inner regions as it was done by Emsellem & Ferruit (2000). It is possible to fit the data far from the galactic plane with appropriate selection of z0, but in this case the fit with dispersions along the major-axis is not so good. Mass-distribution models based on solving the Jeans equations have an advantage that the equations contain explicitly observed functions – velocity dispersions. For spheroidal components, mean velocity dispersions were calculated based only on virial theorem for multicomponent systems. (1994). The JHK-profiles have a rather limited spatial extent and resolution and we decided not to use them here. The angle between the plane of the galaxy and the plane of the sky is denoted by δ. Here, a dark matter (DM) halo is added to visible components. Using the surface brightness distribution in BVRI colours and along the major and minor axes, we assume that our components represent real stellar populations and determine their main structural parameters. For this reason, convolution and deconvolution processes were not used in luminosity-distribution model and in subsequent mass-distribution models. In addition, our intention is to use the model also for velocity dispersion calculations. (1985). For the nucleus and the stellar metal-poor halo, parameters q, a0 and N were determined independently of other subsystems. The solid line – calculated model dispersions, the filled circles – observations. (1996). In the first stage, a luminosity-distribution model was constructed based on the surface brightness distribution. The central density of the DM halo in our model is ρ (0) = 0.033 M⊙ pc−3, being also slightly less than it was derived for distant (z∼ 0.9) galaxies [ρ (0) = 0.012 − 0.028 M⊙ pc−3, Tamm & Tenjes (2005)]. line if sight A B C A D v −v t Figure 3: The velocity curve of a star orbiting the common center of mass with a planet. In these outer parts, the velocities from different studies were averaged and the resulting gas rotation velocities are given by the filled circles in Fig. Fig. Averaged in the same way, line-of-sight velocity dispersions along the major axis are presented by the filled circles in Fig. You cannot calculate the radial velocity from a proper motion. Due to our different approaches, it is difficult to compare our components and their parameters with those of Emsellem et al. The velocity dispersion ellipsoid inclinations calculated in this paper are moderate, being less than or equal to 30°. Line Of Sight Calculator: Enter value, select unit and click on calculate. Based on velocity dispersion observations only along the major-axis, it is difficult to decide about the presence of the DM even when dispersions extend up to 2–3 Re (Samurović & Danziger 2005). PRINTED FROM OXFORD REFERENCE (www.oxfordreference.com). Step 2: Calculate the value of Rotation vector of the line of sight Ω Ω= V x R / R 2 = 20 x 40 / 402 = 800 / 402 = 0.5. 11). In our model, a significant increase of the ellipsoid inclination angle begins at larger z, which can be explained by higher thickness of the disc component of M 104 (q= 0.25). In subsequent fitting processes, these parameters were kept fixed. V OBS =V ROT sin(i) i = 90o V OBS = V ROT i = 0o = 0 Example: Inclination Corrections A long-slit spectrum aligned with a galaxy’s major axis has an [OII] line at 3900A that shifts by 5A from one side to the In our model, the mass of the disc is Mdisc= 12 × 1010 M⊙. 2001). In Section 4, we present the line-of-sight dispersion modelling process. When you look at an object, you are able to see the object because it is illuminated with light and that light reflects off it and travels to your eye. where ρ (0) =l(0)(M/L) =hM/(4πq a30) is the central mass density and M is the component mass. R - Rotate vector Ω - Line of sight a-> - Relative velocity One reason may be that we could not find an appropriate solution for z0. This galaxy is suitable for model testing, being a disc galaxy with a significant spheroidal component. Opt. First, we make a projection in a plane parallel to the galactic disc. Dispersions σ2R and σ2z must be calculated from the Jeans equations. Due to dust-absorption lane, surface brightnesses only on one side along the minor-axis have been taken into account. Later, similar measurements were performed by Binney et al. Formula: a n = N x λ x V a-> = N x V x Ω Ω = V x R / R 2 where, a n - is the acceleration perpendicular to missile velocity vector N - is the PN constant λ - is the line of sight rate V - is the velocity. On the other hand, in addition to stellar velocity dispersion measurements, the mean line-of-sight velocity dispersion of the GC subsystem σ= 255 km s −1 was measured by Bridges et al. First, we made a crude estimation of the population parameters. Comparing spectral line intensities with chemical evolution models, Vazdekis et al. In this study, we do not use the U-profile, as this profile has a rather limited spatial extent and is probably most significantly distorted by absorption. We apply our model for the nearby spiral Sa galaxy M 104 (NGC 4594, the Sombrero galaxy). The derived distributions were averaged, taking into account different background levels. These two galaxies are morphologically close to the Sa galaxy modelled in this paper, and it is seen that dispersion ratios are more anisotropic in our case. Only outermost points are given where stellar motions are not known. On the other hand, in addition to stellar velocity dispersion measurements, the mean line-of-sight velocity dispersion of the GC subsystem σ= 255 km s−1 was measured by Bridges et al. Bajaja E.

The observed surface density distribution of GC candidates was derived by Bridges & Hanes (1992), Larsen et al. Another algorithm in the context of the multi-Gaussian expansion (MGE) formalism was developed by Emsellem et al. Modelling the disc Sb galaxy NGC 288 within a constant-velocity ellipsoid inclination approximation, Gerssen, Kuijken & Merrifield (1997) estimated that the dispersion ratio σz/σR= 0.70. Thereafter, in the second stage we develop on the basis of the Jeans equations a detailed mass distribution model and calculate line-of-sight velocity dispersions and the stellar rotation curve. The velocity dispersion tensor in the diagonal form for the axisymmetric case can be described by four variables: dispersions along the coordinate axis (σR, σz and σθ) and an orientation angle α in the R–z plane (see Fig. The radial velocity is the velocity of the star along this line of sight. (2002) and Verolme et al. where vR, vz and vθ are velocity components. In general, a radially elongated dispersion ellipsoid is rather common (Shapiro, Gerssen & van der Marel 2003). • Calculate the line-of-sight thermal velocity dispersion Dv Dof line photons emitted from a hydrogen cloud at a temperature of 104K. (1997) and the calculated mean velocity dispersion of GC subsystem σGC= 255 km s−1 was derived. The purpose of this step is to avoid, obviously, non-physical parameters – relation (2) is non-linear and fitting of the model to observations is not a straightforward procedure. 9 gives the shape and orientation of the velocity dispersion ellipsoid in the galactic meridional (R, z) plane. As defined, if v r is positive the object is moving away. In the case of a triaxial velocity ellipsoid, the phase density of a stellar system is a function of three integrals of motion. In the second stage, we calculate line-of-sight velocity dispersions and the stellar rotational curve and derive a mass-distribution model. All these dispersions correspond to a region where DM takes effect. Line-of-sight velocities of GCs were measured by Bridges et al. After doing some rotations and projections, I obtain new position and velocity component (x',y',z',vx',vy',vz') of the stars. Thereafter, in the second stage, we develop, based on the Jeans equations, a detailed mass-distribution model and calculate line-of-sight velocity dispersions and the stellar rotation curve. If you wish to view the top of object, then you direct your sight along a line towards the top of the object. 2004). A. Courteau S. De Jong R. Carignan C.. Emsellem E. Monnet G. Bacon R. Nieto J.-L..

The spatial density distribution of each visible component is approximated by an inhomogeneous ellipsoid of rotational symmetry with the constant axial ratio q and the density-distribution law. 5). Here, we assume the galaxy to consist of the nucleus, the bulge, the disc and the stellar metal-poor halo and determine structural parameters of these components. In our model, the disc is rather thick (q= 0.25). S. B. Mende and S. E. Harris, "Measurement of the line-of-sight velocity of high-altitude barium clouds: a technique," Appl. 1, upper panels), and the axial ratios (the ratio of the minor-axis to the major-axis of an isophote) (Fig. Integrating dispersions along the line of sight, we may write, where l(R, z) denotes galactic spatial luminosity density, and L(X, Y) is the surface luminosity density profile (please note that integration dl means integration along the line of sight). When constructing a self-consistent model, we take into account the galactic surface brightness distribution, stellar rotation curve and velocity dispersions. The points where the component of the velocity vector along the line of sight is zero (A and C) as well as the points where the radial component equals the full velocity … We project the velocity dispersions in two steps (see Figs 7 and 8).
