The Galactic Bar

  • Ortwin Gerhard (a1), James Binney (a2) and Hongsheng Zhao (a3)

Abstract

We summarize recent work on the structure and dynamics of the Galactic bar and inner disk. Current work focusses on constructing a quantitative model which integrates NIR photometry, source count observations, gas kinematics, stellar dynamical observations, and microlensing. Some avenues for future research are discussed.
