Colloquium: The true shape of galaxies
The intrinsic or true three-dimensional shape of galaxies is one of their most fundamental characteristic. Yet, due to projection effects, the true shape of galaxies is a difficult property to measure accurately. The most reliable method for inferring intrinsic shapes require large samples of spatially resolved stellar kinematic maps. Large IFU surveys are now enabling this type of science to be done accurately on carefully selected samples of galaxies. I am using the SAMI Galaxy Survey to uncover the intrinsic shape of various carefully selected galaxy samples. Preliminary results will be presented.
