- A K-band central disc surface brightness correlation with scalelength for early-type disc galaxies, and the inclination correction
- Graham, Alister W.
- The K-band light profiles from two statistically complete, diameter-limited samples of disc galaxies have been simultaneously modelled with a seeing-convolved Sérsic r1/n bulge and a seeing-convolved exponential disc. This has enabled an accurate separation of the bulge and disc light, and hence an estimate of the central disc surface brightness.
