NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 2014MNRAS.445.3512S On the surface density of dark matter haloes Saburova, A.; Del Popolo, A. Abstract. In this article, we test the conclusion of the universality of the dark matter (DM) halo surface density mu_0D_ = {rho}_0_r_0_. According to our study, the dispersion of values of mu_0D_ is twice as high as that found previously by other authors. We conclude that the DM surface density and its Newtonian acceleration are not constant but correlate with the luminosity, morphological type, (B - V)_0_ colour index and content of neutral hydrogen. These DM parameters are higher for more luminous systems of early types with red colour and low gas content. We also found that the correlation of DM parameters with colour index appears to be the manifestation of a stronger relation between DM halo mass and the colour of a galaxy. This finding is in agreement with cosmological simulations. These results leave little room for the recently claimed universality of DM column density. We also found that isolated galaxies in our sample (contained in the Analysis of the interstellar Medium of Isolated GAlaxies (AMIGA) catalogue) do not differ significantly in their value of mu_0D_ from the entire sample. Thus, since the AMIGA catalogue gives a sample of galaxies that have not interacted with a significant mass neighbour in the past 3 Gyr, the difference between systems with low and high values of mu_0D_ is not related to merging events during this period of time. Key words: galaxies: formation, galaxies: haloes
