Six new galactic orbits of globular clusters in a Milky Way-like galaxy.

ALLEN C., MORENO E. and PICHARDO B.

Abstract (from CDS):

Absolute proper motions for six new globular clusters have recently been determined. This motivated us to obtain the Galactic orbits of these six clusters both in an axisymmetric Galactic potential and in a barred potential, such as that of our Galaxy. Orbits are also obtained for a Galactic potential that includes spiral arms. The orbital characteristics are compared and discussed for these three cases. Tidal radii and destruction rates are also computed and discussed.
