We present rotation curve fits to 175 late-type galaxies from the Spitzer Photometry & Accurate Rotation Curves (SPARC) database using seven dark matter (DM) halo profiles: pseudo-isothermal (pISO), Burkert, Navarro-Frenk-White (NFW), Einasto, Di Cintio (2014, DC14), coreNFW, and a new semi-empirical profile named Lucky13. We marginalize over stellar mass-to-light ratio, galaxy distance, disk inclination, halo concentration and halo mass (and an additional shape parameter for Einasto) using a…

Massive disc galaxies in cosmological hydrodynamical simulations are too dark matter-dominated
We investigate the disc-halo connection in massive (Mstar/Msun>5e10) disc galaxies from the cosmological hydrodynamical simulations EAGLE and IllustrisTNG, and compare it with that inferred from the
Estimation of the mass of dark matter using the observed mass profiles of late-type galaxies
The system of stability equations for galactic halos is under-determined in most of the models of dark matter (DM). Conventionally, the issue is resolved by taking the temperature as a constant, and
A comprehensive analysis using 9 dark matter halo models on the spiral galaxy NGC 4321
This paper addressed the dark matter analysis on the spiral galaxy NGC 4321 (M100) by considering the nine different dark matter profiles, so far lacking in the scientific literature, i.e.,
Metamorphosis of a Dwarf Halo Density Profile under Dark Matter Decay
We have studied the density profile of a dwarf halo in the decaying dark matter (DDM) cosmology, using a new algorithm that resolves halo density profiles down to the innermost 700 pc robustly with
The Dekel-Zhao profile: a mass-dependent dark-matter density profile with flexible inner slope and analytic potential, velocity dispersion, and lensing properties
We explore a function with two shape parameters for the dark-matter halo density profile subject to baryonic effects, which is a special case of the general Zhao family of models applied to simulated

We propose a simple geometrical mechanism for the flattening of galactic rotation curves, the local compression of field lines around their planes induced either by the presence of thin string-like
Massive disc galaxies too dominated by dark matter in cosmological hydrodynamical simulations

Connecting the Local Stellar Halo and Its Dark Matter Density to Dwarf Galaxies via Blue Stragglers
The Gaia HR diagram shows the presence of apparently young stars at high tangential velocities. Using a simple analytical model I show that these stars are likely to be blue stragglers. Once
From spirals to lenticulars: Evidence from the rotation curves and mass models of three early-type galaxies
Rotation curves have traditionally been difficult to trace for early-type galaxies (ETGs) because they often lack a high-density disk of cold gas as in late-type galaxies (LTGs). We derive rotation
Dynamical evidence for a morphology-dependent relation between the stellar and halo masses of galaxies
We derive the stellar-to-halo mass relation (SHMR), namely f⋆ ∝ M⋆/Mh versus M⋆ and Mh, for early-type galaxies from their near-infrared luminosities (for M⋆) and the position-velocity distributions


The Structure of cold dark matter halos
High resolution N-body simulations show that the density profiles of dark matter halos formed in the standard CDM cosmogony can be fit accurately by scaling a simple “universal” profile. Regardless
A constant characteristic volume density of dark matter haloes from SPARC rotation curve fits
We study the scaling relations between dark matter (DM) haloes and galaxy discs using 175 galaxies from the SPARC database. We explore two cosmologically motivated DM halo profiles: the Einasto

Testing feedback-modified dark matter haloes with galaxy rotation curves: estimation of halo parameters and consistency with ΛCDM scaling relations
Cosmological $N$-body simulations predict dark matter (DM) haloes with steep central cusps (e.g. NFW, Navarro et al. 1996). This contradicts observations of gas kinematics in low-mass galaxies that
Understanding the shape and diversity of dwarf galaxy rotation curves in ΛCDM
The shape and wide diversity of dwarf galaxy rotation curves is at apparent odds with dark matter halos in LCDM. We generate mock rotation curve data from dwarf galaxy simulations to show that this
