Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/308052
Description: We analyse the kinematics of ~400 000 stars that lie within ~2 kpc of the Sun and have spectra measured in the Radial Velocity Experiment. We decompose the sample into hot and cold dwarfs, red-clump a ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/298510
Description: We demonstrate here using both single-dish and interferometric observations that CO molecules are an excellent kinematic tracer, even in high-mass galaxies, allowing us to investigate for the first ti ... More
