High-resolution rotation curves of low surface brightness galaxies.


Abstract (from CDS):

We present high-resolution rotation curves of a sample of 26 low surface brightness galaxies. From these curves we derive mass distributions using a variety of assumptions for the stellar mass-to-light ratio. We show that the predictions of current Cold Dark Matter models for the density profiles of dark matter halos are inconsistent with the observed curves. The latter indicate a core-dominated structure, rather than the theoretically preferred cuspy structure.
