Models of the mass distribution of the Galaxy

  • Maarten Schmidt (a1)

Extract

Mass models of the Galaxy play an important role in studies of the structure of the Galaxy. The various populations or components combine to yield a gravitational field that produces the observed rotation curve. For the spheroid and disk this requirement can be used to set limits on some of their properties. The properties of the dark corona are entirely defined this way.
