Stellar Kinematics of Boxy Bulges: Large-Scale Bars and Inner Disks

Abstract

Long-slit stellar kinematic observations were obtained along the major-axis of 30 edge-on spiral galaxies, 24 with a boxy or peanut-shaped (B/PS) bulge and 6 with other bulge types for comparison. B/PS bulges are identified in at least 45% of highly inclined systems and a growing body of theoretical and observational work suggests that they are the edge-on… (More)
