1990A&A...237...36C Does the dark component influence the shape of the inner rotation curves of spiral galaxies? R. L. M. Corradi and M. Capaccioli Dipartimento di Astronomia, Universita di Padova, 1-35122 Padova, Italy Osservatorio Astronomico, I-35122 Padova, Italy Received March 28; accepted May 19, 1990 Abstract. A statistical analysis of the relation between the essential shape of the rotation curve, the morphology, and the absolute luminosity of spiral galaxies is presented for a sample of 167 objects. At variance with Burstein and Rubin's (1985) results, we find that the shape of rotation curves of spirals inside the 'optical' region (R <~ R_25_) correlates with the Hubble type. This fact reflects a correlation between light and mass distributions in the inner galaxian regions, showing that the inner dynamics shall not be usually controlled by the dark component.
