One indirect evidence for long-term circularization processes can be obtained by considering the eccentricities of all known spectroscopic binaries as a function of their orbital period.

Therefore, the variation of the transition period as a function of the sample age can be used as indirect evidence of the circularization processes.

This causes the circular “filtered” area not to have a sharp edge that a perfect sinc function would produce.

For the rest of this paper, we will refer to this special circular Gaussian as the “fiducial galaxy.” Figure 2 shows the ellipticity correlation functions for three different sizes of circular Gaussian shapes, with the middle one (square) being the fiducial galaxy.

In its original form, the problem was expressed as an excess of subhalos as a function of their circular velocity or mass but it was soon re-expressed as an excess of subhalos as a function of their galaxy luminosity.

Circular velocities for the ellipticals are derived from models, as described by Franx (1993). (b) The ratio of velocity dispersion in the bulge to dark halo circular velocity, σ/vc , taken from Franx (1993), plotted as a function of bulge-to-disk ratio, for the entire range of Hubble Type.

First of all, according to optics calculations the main beams are not circular Gaussian (Burigana et al. 2001), but elliptical, which is normally formulated as bivariate Gaussian functions.

This technique3 is based on the fact that for magnetic systems the absorption coefficient µ(ǫ) as function of the x-ray energy ǫ is different for x-rays with left-circular polarization, µ+ (ǫ), and right-circular polarization, µ− (ǫ).
