Galaxy Dynamics from Edge-on Late-type Galaxies


We present first results of a program to study the dynamics of undisturbed bulgeless, low surface density disk galaxies in order to probe the underlying structure of dark matter halos. High resolution Hα rotation curves are combined with optical and infrared imaging to place strong limits on the halo profiles. We find noticable variation in the shapes of… (More)
