The Innuence of Binary Stars on Dwarf Spheroidal Galaxy Kinematics

Abstract

We have completed a Monte-Carlo simulation to estimate the eeect of binary star orbits on the measured velocity dispersion in dwarf spheroidal galaxies. This paper analyses previous attempts at this calculation, and explains the simulations which were performed with mass, period and ellip-ticity distributions similar to that measured for the solar… (More)
