Gravitational bar Torques in the Spiral/S0 Divide

Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 319)


The properties of bars in S0 galaxies and early-type spirals is only beginning to be explored. This paper discusses some preliminary results on maximum relative gravitational bar torques and relative Fourier intensity amplitudes in SB0 and SB0/a galaxies and how these compare with similar quantities estimated for spirals.
