From a comparison of the dierent parameters of warped galaxies in the radio, and especially in the visible, we find that: a) No large galaxy (large mass or radius) has been found to have high amplitude in the warp, and there is no correlation of size/mass with the degree of asymmetry of the warp. b) The disc density and the ratio of dark to luminous mass show an opposing trend: smaller values give more asymmetric warps in the inner radii (optical warps) but show no correlation with the…

Galactic warp in the overdensity of the Canis Major region

Bellazzini et al. claim that Lopez-Corredoira et al. warp model is totally unable to reproduce the Canis Major structure in the red clump stars. However, slight variations in the azimuth of the

On the origin of warps and the role of the intergalactic medium

There is still no consensus as to what causes galactic discs to become warped. Successful models should account for the frequent occurrence of warps in quite isolated galaxies, their amplitude as


We examine the morphology and luminosity distribution of a strongly warped spiral galaxy PGC 20348 by conducting a detailed BVI CCD surface photometry using BOAO 1.8m telescope. The radial surface

A catalog of warps in spiral and lenticular galaxies in the Southern hemisphere

A catalog of optical warps of galaxies is presented. This can be considered complementary to that reported by Sanchez-Saavedra et al. ([CITE]), with 42 galaxies in the northern hemisphere, and to

Outer structure of the Galactic warp and flare: explaining the Canis Major over-density

Aims. In this paper we derive the structure of the Galactic stellar warp and flare. Methods. We use 2MASS red clump and red giant stars, selected at mean and fixed heliocentric distances of

Constraining the Magnetic Effects on H I Rotation Curves and the Need for Dark Halos

The density profiles of dark halos are usually inferred from the rotation curves of disk galaxies based on the assumption that the gas is a good tracer of the gravitational potential of the galaxies.

Probing the Canis Major stellar over-density as due to the Galactic warp

Proper-motion, star counts and photometric catalog simulations are used to explain the detected stellar over-density in the region of Canis Major, claimed to be the core of a disrupted dwarf galaxy


Warped disks are almost ubiquitous among spiral galaxies. Here we revisit and test the “flyby scenario” of warp formation, in which impulsive encounters between galaxies are responsible for warped
