Dissecting a galaxy: mass distribution of 2237+0305

By Cathryn M. Trott and Rachel L. Webster

Abstract

We determine the mass distribution of a spiral galaxy, 2237+0305 using both gravitational lensing and dynamical constraints. We find that lensing can break the disc-halo degeneracy. 2237+0305 has a sub-maximal disc, contributing 57±3 per cen
