Book cover: Lopsided Spiral GalaxiesLopsided Spiral Galaxies
by - arXiv
The light distribution in the disks of many galaxies is non-axisymmetric or 'lopsided' with a spatial extent larger along one half of a galaxy than the other. In this review, the observations to measure the lopsided distribution will be discussed.
