A Sober Look at Bars in Galaxies

  • William C. Keel (a1)

Abstract

I review some of the more notable observational aspects of bars in galaxies. Key issues include the overall occurrence of bars, secular evolution of bars and bulges, the differences in bar properties with Hubble type, the role of bars in star formation and nuclear activity, and the evidence for a bar at the center of the Milky Way. These lead to a “wish list” of future observations.
