Kinematics and dynamics of the galactic bulge through planetary nebulae
International Astronomical Union Symposium (234th : 2006) (3 - 7 April 2006 : Hawaii)
Barlow, Michael J. and Méndez, Roberto H.. Planetary nebulae in our galaxy and beyond : proceedings of the 234th symposium of the International Astronomical Union held in Waikoloa Beach, Hawaii, USA April 3-7, 2006, Vol. 2, p.485-486
The discovery of ∼500 planetary nebulae (PNe) in the bulge region allows us to probe the bulge out to ∼ 8 kpc. This opens up the possibility to track bulge-disc interactions to unprecedented details. We present an exploration of bulge dynamics with Nbody models of a triaxial bulge embedded in an exponential disc (Peyaud 2005).
