The deprojection of the surface brightness distribution of an axisymmetric galaxy does not have a unique solution unless the galaxy is viewed precisely edge-on. I present an algorithm that finds the full range of smooth axisymmetric density distributions consistent with a given surface brightness distribution and inclination angle, and use it to investigate the effects of this non-uniqueness on the line-of-sight velocity profiles (VPs) of two-integral models of both real and toy discy galaxies… CONTINUE READING
