    Haeussler, Boris; McIntosh, Daniel H.; Barden, Marco; Bell, Eric F.; Rix, Hans-Walter; Borch, Andrea; Beckwith, Steven V. W.; Caldwell, John A. R.; Heymans, Catherine; Jahnke, Knud; Jogee, Shardha; Koposov, Sergey E.; Meisenheimer, Klaus; Sanchez, Sebastian F.; Somerville, Rachel S.; Wisotzki, Lutz; Wolf, Christian (2007-10)
    In the context of measuring the structures of intermediate-redshift galaxies with HST ACS surveys, we tune, test, and compare two widely used fitting codes (GALFIT and GIM2D) for fitting single-component Sersic models to ...
  • The M-Sigma And M-L Relations In Galactic Bulges, And Determinations Of Their Intrinsic Scatter
