A Unifying Framework for Self-consistent Gravitational Lensing and Stellar Dynamics Analyses of Early-type Galaxies

Gravitational lensing and stellar dynamics are two indepen dent methods, based solely on gravity, to study the mass distributions of galaxies. Both methods suffer from de gen racies, however, that are difficult to break. In this paper, we present a new framework that self-consistent ly u ifies gravitational lensing and stellar dynamics. This approach breaks… (More)
