Dynamics of the Milky Way: tidal streams and extended distribution functions for the galactic disc
One of the key goals of Milky Way science is measuring the distribution of dark matter in the Galaxy. Through the study of Galactic dynamics, inferences can be made about the structure of the Galaxy, and hence the dark matter distribution. To this end, we present a study of methods useful for modelling and understanding dynamical systems in the Galaxy.
A natural choice of coordinate system when studying dynamical systems is the canonical system of angle-action coordinates. We presen...Expand abstract
