Spectroscopic observations of three lenticular (S0) galaxies (NGC 1167, NGC 4150, and NGC 6340) and one SBa galaxy (NGC 2273) have been taken with the 6-m telescope of the Special Astrophysical Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences aimed to study the structure and kinematic properties of early-type disk galaxies. The radial profiles of the stellar radial velocities and the velocity dispersion are measured. N-body simulations are used to construct dynamical models of galaxies containing… 
Kinematics and stellar disk modeling of lenticular galaxies
We present the results of spectroscopic observations of three S0-Sa galaxies: NGC 338, NGC 3245, and NGC 5440 at the SAO RAS 6-m BTA telescope. The radial distributions of the line-ofsight velocities
We used deep, long-slit spectra and integral-field spectral data to study the stars, ionized gas kinematics, and stellar population properties in the lenticular barred galaxy NGC 7743. We show that
Gravitational stability and dynamical overheating of galactic stellar disks
Stellar velocity dispersion data at galactocentric distance of two disk radial scale lengths (R = 2h), available in the literature allowed us to determine the upper limits of disk local surface
Two-component gravitational instability in spiral galaxies
We applied a criterion of gravitational instability, valid for two-component and infinitesimally thin discs, to observational data along the major axis for 7 spiral galaxies of early types. Unlike
On the gravitational stability and mass estimation of stellar disks
We estimate the masses of disks of galaxies using the marginal gravitational stability criterion and compare them with the photometrical disk mass evaluations. The comparison reveals that the stellar
Reconstructing the velocity dispersion profiles from the line-of-sight kinematic data in disc galaxies
We present a modification of the method for reconstructing the stellar velocity ellipsoid (SVE) in disc galaxies. Our version does not need any parametrization of the velocity dispersion profiles and
On the nature of the apparent ring galaxy SDSS J075234.33+292049.8
We show that an object classified as a galaxy in on-line data bases and revealed on sky survey images as a distant ring galaxy is a rare case of polar ring galaxy (PRG) where the ring is only
Gravitational instability and star formation in NGC 628
The gas-stars instability criterion for infinitesimally thin disc was applied to the galaxy NGC 628. Instead of using the azimuthally averaged profiles of data the maps of the gas surface densities
Inner polar rings and disks: Observed properties
A list of galaxies with inner regions revealing polar (or strongly inclined to the main galactic plane) disks and rings is compiled from the literature data. The list contains 47 galaxies of all
A new catalogue of polar-ring galaxies selected from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
Galaxies with polar rings (PRGs) are a unique class of extragalactic objects. Using these, we can investigate a wide range of problems, linked to the formation and evolution of galaxies, and we can


Dark Matter within High Surface Brightness Spiral Galaxies
We present results from a detailed dynamical analysis of five high surface brightness, late-type spiral galaxies, NGC 3810, NGC 3893, NGC 4254, NGC 5676, and NGC 6643, which were studied with the aim
Face-on Galaxies NGC 524 and NGC 6340: Chemically Decoupled Nuclei and Inclined Circumnuclear Disks
The central regions of the early-type disk galaxies NGC 524 and NGC 6340 have been investigated with the Multipupil Field Spectrograph at the 6 m telescope of the Special Astrophysical Observatory of
The stellar kinematics of galactic disks.
Stellar velocity dispersion measurements of a sample of 12 galactic disks are summarized. The observed radial functionality is parameterized such that one dispersion value is assigned to each galaxy.
Relationship between the thickness of stellar disks and the relative mass of a dark galactic halo
We analyze the R-and Ks-band photometric profiles for two independent samples of edge-on galaxies. The thickness of old stellar disks is shown to be related to the relative masses of the spherical
Stellar Populations in Nearby Lenticular Galaxies
We have obtained two-dimensional spectral data for a sample of 58 nearby S0 galaxies with the Multi-Pupil Fiber/Field Spectrograph of the 6 m telescope of the Special Astrophysical Observatory of the
The vertical profiles of chain and spiral galaxies in the Hubble Space Telescope Ultra Deep Field (UDF) are fit to sech2 functions convolved with stellar profiles in order to measure the disk scale
Structure and kinematics of candidate double - barred galaxies
Results of optical and NIR spectral and photometric observations of a sample of candidate double-barred galaxies are presented. Velocity fields and velocity dispersion maps of stars and ionized gas,
Estimating the masses of the spherical and disk components of galaxies via numerical simulations
A series of numerical N-body simulations is performed in order to dynamically model the properties of four galaxies (NGC 5603, NGC 3198, NGC 891, and NGC 1566) with known rotation curves, radial disk
The mass distribution in early‐type disc galaxies: declining rotation curves and correlations with optical properties
We present rotation curves for 19 early-type disc galaxies (S0-Sab). The galaxies span a B-band absolute magnitude range from -17.5 to -22, but the majority have a high luminosity with M-B <-20.
