Open AccessThe closure conditions, which make a finite set of moment equations equivalent to the collisionless Boltzmann equation, are investigated for Gaussian and ellipsoidal velocity distributions working from the com- plete ...
Open AccessPlanar and vertical epicycle frequencies and local angular velocity are related to the derivatives up to the second order of the local potential and can be used to test the shape of the potential from stellar disc samples. ...

Open AccessMost galaxies have a warped shape when they are seen edge-on. The reason for this curious form is not completely known so far, so in this work we apply dynamical system tools to contribute to its explanation. Starting from ...
