Warped extended disks inclined up to ∼ 20°with respect to the stellar disk having radii in a range of a few kpc to larger than kpc are frequently detected in H i cm observations in the. In this paper, we discuss rings highly inclined to the equatorial symmetry plane; this is relevant to polar rings observed around galaxies and can clarify the possible evolution of the rings.

1 INTRODUCTION. The optically visible parts of galactic discs are usually remarkably thin and flat, whereas the more extended H-i discs of many edge-on galaxies appear notably warped with an integral sign r warps do exist in some galaxies (e.g. Reshetnikov et al. ), but are much less pronounced than the warps in the extended gaseous discs.   3D isodensity surface of the warped model at 5 10 −4 and 5 10 −5 M ⊙ kpc −3 (w = kpc −1).

A ring galaxy, as the name suggests, is a disc or spiral galaxy with its galactic disc structured or distorted into a ring or torus-like appearance. Hoag's Object, discovered by Art Hoag in , is the prototypical example of a ring galaxy. Ring galaxies are theorized to be formed through multiple possible. A gravitational lens is a distribution of matter (such as a cluster of galaxies) between a distant light source and an observer, that is capable of bending the light from the source as the light travels towards the effect is known as gravitational lensing, and the amount of bending is one of the predictions of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity.

Sackett, and Franklin H. Briggs (eds.), Science Books and. Abstract. Because of the sensitivity and resolution, both spatial and spectral, at centimeter wavelengths and the large amounts of interstellar gas in the form of neutral atomic hydrogen (HI) in typical galaxies, the cm HI line has served as a valuable tool in probing the disk component of galaxies, both structurally and without spatial information, the global cm profile.

Many early-type galaxies, including dust-lane ellipticals and polar-ring galaxies, possess embedded gas disks. These disks, which are generally believed to be the result of accretion, often display warps and twists or have angular momentum vectors that are misaligned with the kinematic axes of the galaxy.

Many ellipticals contain disks or rings of stars, dust, or gas; others show signs of recent accretions in the form of shells of luminosity. Self-Gravitating Warped Disks Around Black Holes 1.

Whitmore Space Telescope Science Institute. Abstract. 1. Introduction. The outer parts of the disks in many spiral galaxies, including our own, are warped. Warps are most conspicuous in HI observations (Bosma, ), although stellar disks can also be highly best example of optical warps is that of PGC (Burbidge et al., ), which resembles an integral earliest statistics on the frequency of optical warps indicated.

ESO’s SPHERE instrument on the Very Large Telescope imaged a warped protoplanetary disc around a triple star system known as GW Orionis (right panel) featuring three vast dust rings.

The shadow cast by the misaligned innermost dust ring, extending to lower left, allowed researchers to understand the three dimensional structure of the system.

Polar ring galaxies, such as NGC A, are a class of galaxies that have two kinematically distinct components that are inclined by almost 90° to each other. These striking galaxies challenge our understanding of how galaxies form; the origin of their distinct components has remained uncertain and is the subject of much debate.A stable, nearly polar ring bends towards the pole at the outer edge; this is in contrast to the stable warped discs that may exist in triaxial galaxies, which turn towards the equator.

Many galaxies have warped disks like that! While the cause isn’t % certain, a plausible scenario is that the galaxy recently underwent a near-miss or even a collision with a smaller galaxy. The gravity of the smaller galaxy can distort the disk, creating a ripple in it.
