J/ApJ/645/228  Velocities of satellites of external disk galaxies (Azzaro+ 2006)

The peculiar velocities of satellites of external disk galaxies. Azzaro M., Zentner A.R., Prada F., Klypin A.A. <Astrophys. J., 645, 228-239 (2006)> =2006ApJ...645..228A
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, rotation ; Radial velocities Keywords: galaxies: evolution - galaxies: formation - galaxies: kinematics and dynamics Abstract: We analyze the angular distribution and the orbital rotation directions of a sample of carefully selected satellite galaxies about disk galaxy primaries extracted from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). We complement this analysis with a theoretical study of these statistics in an N-body simulation of cosmological structure formation set within the ΔCDM paradigm under various assumptions for the orientations of disk angular momenta.
