We formulate a new and coherent understanding of the structure and dynamics of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) and its orbit around and interaction with the Milky Way. Much of our understanding of these issues hinges on studies of the LMC line-of-sight kinematics. The observed velocity field includes contributions from the LMC rotation curve V(R'), the LMC transverse velocity vector vt, and the rate of inclination change di/dt. All previous studies have assumed di/dt = 0. We show that this is… 
Kinematical structure of the Magellanic System
Abstract We review our understanding of the kinematics of the LMC and the SMC, and their orbit around the Milky Way. The line-of-sight velocity fields of both the LMC and SMC have been mapped with
H I Kinematics of the Large Magellanic Cloud revisited : Evidence of possible infall and outflow
The neutral atomic Hydrogen (H I) kinematics of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) is revisited in light of two new proper motion estimates. We analysed the intensity weighted H I velocity maps of the
Evidence for Tidal Effects in the Stellar Dynamics of the Large Magellanic Cloud
We present a combined analysis of the kinematics of the Large Magellanic Cloud through its H I gas, carbon stars, and red supergiant stars. After correcting the line-of-sight velocities for the
A POPULATION OF ACCRETED SMALL MAGELLANIC CLOUD STARS IN THE LARGE MAGELLANIC CLOUD
We present an analysis of the stellar kinematics of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) based on ~5900 new and existing velocities of massive red supergiants, oxygen-rich and carbon-rich asymptotic
A Population of Accreted SMC Stars in the LMC
We present an analysis of the stellar kinematics of the Large Magellanic Cloud based on ~5900 new and existing velocities of massive red supergiants, oxygen-rich and carbon-rich AGB stars, and other
The 3D Kinematics of Gas in the Small Magellanic Cloud
We investigate the kinematics of neutral gas in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) and test the hypothesis that it is rotating in a disk. To trace the 3D motions of the neutral gas distribution, we
On the dynamics of the Small Magellanic Cloud through high-resolution ASKAP H iobservations
We use new high-resolution H i data from the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder to investigate the dynamics of the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC). We model the H i gas component as a rotating
Revisiting the Role of M31 in the Dynamical History of the Magellanic Clouds
We study the dynamics of the Magellanic Clouds in a model for the Local Group whose mass is constrained using the timing argument/two-body limit of the action principle. The goal is to evaluate the
Rotation of the Milky Way and the formation of the Magellanic Stream
We studied the impact of the revisited values for the LSR circular velocity of the Milky Way (Reid et al. 2004) on the formation of the Magellanic Stream. The LSR circular velocity was varied within
Spatial Motion of The Magellanic Clouds: Tidal Models Ruled Out?
Recently, Kallivayalil et al. derived new values of the proper motion for the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds (LMC and SMC, respectively). The spatial velocities of both Clouds are unexpectedly

A combination of analytic models and n-body simulations implies that the structural evolution of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) is dominated by its dynamical interaction with the Milky Way.
Proper Motion of the Large Magellanic Cloud using QSOs as an Inertial Reference System
