We present kinematical data for a sample of 25 galaxies. Rotation curves and velocity-dispersion profiles are determined for 16 objects, while the central velocity dispersions are given for the whole sample. This is our fourth paper in a series devoted to the presentation of kinematical data on elliptical and S0 galaxies, derived from long-slit absorption spectroscopy.

Key words: galaxies: elliptical & lenticular, cD -- galaxies: kinematics and dynamics -- galaxies: fundamental parameters -- galaxies: general

What is OpenURL?

The OpenURL standard is a protocol for transmission of metadata describing the resource that you wish to access.

An OpenURL link contains article metadata and directs it to the OpenURL server of your choice. The OpenURL server can provide access to the resource and also offer complementary services (specific search engine, export of references...). The OpenURL link can be generated by different means.

  • If your librarian has set up your subscription with an OpenURL resolver, OpenURL links appear automatically on the abstract pages.
  • You can define your own OpenURL resolver with your EDPS Account.
    In this case your choice will be given priority over that of your library.
  • You can use an add-on for your browser (Firefox or I.E.) to display OpenURL links on a page (see You should disable this module if you wish to use the OpenURL server that you or your library have defined.
