In order to investigate the stability properties of galaxy models with central density cusps, N-body simulations of oblate models with density \(\rho \propto m^{-1} (m+a)^{-3}\) where m 2 =R 2+[z/q]2 and distribution functions f(E,L z) (computed as in Dehnen, 1995) have been performed with the following results.
