The Assembly and Evolution of Spiral Disks


We explore how the growth rate of spiral disks can be measured via analyses of the scatter in the Tully-Fisher (TF) relation of local and intermediate redshift galaxies. As an initial step, we show it is possible to construct a low-dispersion TF relation for nearly face-on, nearby spirals. We find these spiral disks are non-circular, (a mean ellipticity of… (More)
