Kinematic constraints on the stellar and dark matter content of spiral and S0 galaxies

Abstract:

We present mass models of a sample of 14 spiral and 14 S0 galaxies that constrain their stellar and dark matter content. For each galaxy, we derive the stellar mass distribution from near-infrared photometry under the assumptions of axisymmetry and a constant KS-band stellar mass-to-light ratio. To this we add a dark halo assumed to follow a spherically symmetric Navarro, Frenk and White profile and a correlation between concentration and dark mass within the virial radius, MDM. We solve the ...
