"Based on the careful analysis of gas kinematics
, we concluded a compact object with a mass of about 100,000 solar masses is lurking in this cloud," Prof Oka added.
Other topics include relativistic winds from supermassive black holes, gas kinematics
in the inner few hundred parsecs of NGC 1068, and the effects of an accretion disk wind on the profile of AGN emission lines.
Furthermore, wide field stellar and gas kinematics
can be used to constrain the shape of the dark matter gravitational potential in which all these processes take place.
Other subjects detailed are coordinated instruments for source detection and characterization, redshift determination algorithms for broadband spectroscopic data, monitoring phase calibrators at submillimeter wavelengths, dense gas at high redshifts, astrometric imaging of high redshift galaxies at 345 GHz, and tracing the evolution of disk galaxies with galactic structures and gas kinematics
As our research has shown recently, conditions for star formation along bars depend on the gas kinematics
, the amplitude of dissipative shocks, and the age of the bar.
