Where is the rotation centre of the LMC?

  • R. Wielebinski (a1) and E. Bajaja (a2)

Abstract

The structure of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) has posed many questions and has led to many controversial discussions. Although classified as an 'irregular', repeated claims have been made suggesting that the LMC has spiral structure. Furthermore, this 'spiral' structure seems to originate in the 30-Doradus nebula which, as a result, was sometimes referred to as the 'nucleus' of the LMC. We summarize the recent data on the LMC and re-examine the HI data to point out that possibly different rotation centres exist for different components.
