  • Following a number of discrepant studies of M87’s mass prole, we carry out an extensive dynamical analysis of multiple tracer populations in this giant elliptical galaxy in order to constrain its mass over a large radius range. We combine stellar kinematics in the central regions with the dynamics of 612 globular clusters out to 200 kpc and satellite Virgo galaxies on scales comparable with the virial radius of the cluster. Using a spherically symmetric Jeans analysis, we are able to… CONTINUE READING
