Inclination Effects in Spiral Galaxy Gravitational Lensing


Spheroidal components of spiral galaxies have been considered the only dynamically important component in gravitational lensing studies thus far. Here we point out that including the disk component can have a significant effect, depending on the disk inclination, on a variety of lensing properties that are relevant to present studies and future surveys. As… (More)
