Fine-tuning in the rotation curves of spirals and the uniqueness of their mass modelling

Abstract

We construct a generic mass model of a disk galaxy by combining the usual two mass components, an exponential thin stellar disk and a dark halo for which we alternatively assume one of the two most common mass distributions. We construct its generic rotation curve, with two free parameters linked to its shape and one to its amplitude, namely the halo… (More)
