Abstract

Recent work on the construction of spherical, axisymmetric and triaxial dynamical models for elliptical galaxies is reviewed briefly, including their role in providing evidence for dark halos and central black holes. The different orbital structures and shapes of low-mass and giant elliptical galaxies provide essential constraints on scenarios of galaxy formation.
