H II region abundances - Model oxygen line ratios
An extensive, homogeneous grid of H II region models, is presented. It is found that the behavior of the strong oxygen lines can be modeled by taking proper account of the softening of the ionizing
SPARC: Mass Models for 175 Disk Galaxies with Spitzer Photometry and Accurate Rotation Curves
We introduce SPARC (Spitzer Photometry & Accurate Rotation Curves): a sample of 175 nearby galaxies with new surface photometry at 3.6 um and high-quality rotation curves from previous HI/Halpha
THE BARYONIC TULLY-FISHER RELATION OF GAS-RICH GALAXIES AS A TEST OF ΛCDM AND MOND
The baryonic Tully-Fisher relation (BTFR) is an empirical relation between baryonic mass and rotation velocity in disk galaxies. It provides tests of galaxy formation models in ΛCDM and of
THE BARYONIC TULLY-FISHER RELATION OF GALAXIES WITH EXTENDED ROTATION CURVES AND THE STELLAR MASS OF ROTATING GALAXIES
I investigate the baryonic Tully-Fisher relation for a sample of galaxies with extended 21 cm rotation curves spanning the range 20 km s-1 Vf ? 300 km s-1. A variety of scalings of the stellar
Modified Newtonian dynamics as an alternative to dark matter
▪ Abstract Modified Newtonian dynamics (MOND) is an empirically motivated modification of Newtonian gravity or inertia suggested by Milgrom as an alternative to cosmic dark matter. The basic idea is
Color--Mass-to-Light Ratio Relations for Disk Galaxies
We combine Spitzer $3.6\mu$ observations of a sample of disk galaxies spanning over 10 magnitudes in luminosity with optical luminosities and colors to test population synthesis prescriptions for
Radial Acceleration Relation in Rotationally Supported Galaxies.
TLDR
A correlation between the radial acceleration traced by rotation curves and that predicted by the observed distribution of baryons is reported, tantamount to a natural law for rotating galaxies.
Modified Newtonian Dynamics (MOND): Observational Phenomenology and Relativistic Extensions
TLDR
It is shown that many of these puzzling observations are predicted by one single relation — Milgrom’s law — involving an acceleration constant a0 on the order of the square-root of the cosmological constant in natural units.
OXYGEN ABUNDANCES IN LOW SURFACE BRIGHTNESS DISK GALAXIES
The oxygen abundances in the \HII regions of a sample of low surface brightness (LSB) disk galaxies are presented. In general, LSB galaxies are found to be metal poor ($Z < {1 \over 3} Z\solar$).
THE BARYON CONTENT OF COSMIC STRUCTURES
We make an inventory of the baryonic and gravitating mass in structures ranging from the smallest galaxies to rich clusters of galaxies. We find that the fraction of baryons converted to stars
