We present mass models of a sample of 14 spiral and 14 SO galaxies that constrain their stellar and dark matter content. For each galaxy, we derive the stellar mass distribution from near-infrared photometry under the assumptions of axisymmetry and a constant K s -band stellar mass-to-light ratio (M/L) Ks . To this we add a dark halo assumed to follow a spherically symmetric Navarro, Frenk and White profile and a correlation between concentration and dark mass within the virial radius, M DM…

The Einstein Cross: Constraint on Dark Matter from Stellar Dynamics and Gravitational Lensing
We present two-dimensional line-of-sight stellar kinematics of the lens galaxy in the Einstein Cross, obtained with the GEMINI 8 m telescope, using the GMOS integral-field spectrograph. The stellar
The SWELLS survey – IV. Precision measurements of the stellar and dark matter distributions in a spiral lens galaxy
We construct a fully self-consistent mass model for the lens galaxy SDSS J2141 at redshift 0.14, and use it to improve on previous studies by modelling its gravitational lensing effect, gas rotation
Dwarf galaxy dark matter density profiles inferred from stellar and gas kinematics
We present new constraints on the density profiles of dark matter (DM) halos in seven nearby dwarf galaxies from measurements of their integrated stellar light and gas kinematics. The gas kinematics
Dynamical masses of brightest cluster galaxies I: stellar velocity anisotropy and mass-to-light ratios
We investigate the stellar and dynamical mass profiles in the centres of 25 brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs) at redshifts of 0.05 ≤ z ≤ 0.30. Our spectroscopy enables us to robustly measure the
Stellar Dynamical Models for 797 z ∼ 0.8 Galaxies from LEGA-C
We present spatially resolved stellar kinematics for 797 z = 0.6–1 galaxies selected from the LEGA-C survey and construct axisymmetric Jeans models to quantify their dynamical mass and degree of
Dark matter inside early-type galaxies as function of mass and redshift
We study the behaviour of the dynamical and stellar mass inside the effective radius (re) of early-type galaxies (ETGs). We use several samples of ETGs -ranging from 19 000 to 98 000 objects- from
It has long been regarded as difficult if not impossible for a cosmological model to account simultaneously for the galaxy luminosity, mass, and velocity distributions. We revisit this issue using a
The ATLAS3D project XV: benchmark for early-type galaxies scaling relations from 260 dynamical models: mass-to-light ratio, dark matter, fundamental plane and mass plane
We study the volume-limited and nearly mass-selected (stellar mass M-stars greater than or similar to 6 x 10(9) M circle dot) ATLAS(3D) sample of 260 early-type galaxies (ETGs, ellipticals Es and
GHASP: an Hα kinematic survey of spiral and irregular galaxies – IX. The near‐infrared, stellar and baryonic Tully–Fisher relations★
We studied, for the first time, the near-infrared, stellar and baryonic Tully-Fisher relations for a sample of field galaxies taken from a homogeneous Fabry-Perot sample of galaxies [the Gassendi

We rederive the relation between the specific angular momentum}. and the mass M. of the stellar matter in galaxies of different morphological types. Thi s is a revision of the j.- M. di agram


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
Stellar mass-to-light ratios and the Tully-Fisher relation
We have used a suite of simplified spectrophotometric spiral galaxy evolution models to argue that there are substantial variations in stellar mass-to-light (M/L) ratios within and among galaxies,
A semi-analytic model for the co-evolution of galaxies, black holes and active galactic nuclei
We present a new semi-analytic model that self-consistently traces the growth of supermassive black holes (BH) and their host galaxies within the context of the Lambda cold dark matter (� CDM)
The Central mass distribution in dwarf and low-surface brightness galaxies
We present high-resolution Hrotation curves for a sample of 15 dwarf and low surface brightness galaxies. From these we derive limits on the slopes of the central mass distributions, using both a
Mass-to-light ratio gradients in early-type galaxy haloes
Owing to the fact that the near future should see a rapidly expanding set of probes of the halo masses of individual early-type galaxies, we introduce a convenient parameter for character­ izing the
The dark and visible matter content of low surface brightness disc galaxies
We present mass models of a sample of 19 low surface brightness (LSB) galaxies and compare the properties of their constituent mass components with those of a sample of high surface brightness (HSB)
Measuring the inclination and mass-to-light ratio of axisymmetric galaxies via anisotropic Jeans models of stellar kinematics
We present a simple and efficient anisotropic generalization of the semi-isotropic (two-integral) axisymmetric Jeans formalism, which is used to model the stellar kinematics of galaxies. The

We decompose the rotation curves of 34 bright spiral galaxies into baryonic and dark matter components. Stellar mass profiles are created by applying color-M/L relations to near-infrared and optical

We present axisymmetric maximum disk mass models for a sample of 74 spiral galaxies taken from the southern sky Fabry-Perot Tully-Fisher survey by Schommer et al. The sample contains galaxies

Mass models of spiral galaxies based on the observed light distribution, assuming constant M /L for bulge and disc, are able to reproduce the observed rotation curves in the inner regions, but fail
