- Table 1:
The observational data of NGC 5907. Most columns are self
is the full width half maximum of the seeing.
The two last columns give the total magnitudes and
errors from our measurements, corrected for galactic foreground extinction.
- Table 2:
Parameters of the final model for NGC 5907.
At the left hand side the physical quantities of the stellar disc are given
and at the right hand side the parameters for the dust component. Inclination
i and cutoff radius
are the same for all components. S0 is the
integrated star formation at the centre and
is the conversion factor
to the stellar surface density
Cz is the shape correction factor of the stellar density profile.
- Table 3:
Input parameters for the final model of NGC 5907. At the left hand side
the physical quantities at R0=10 kpc are given and at the
right hand side the corresponding normalised parameters of the normalised
The corresponding description is given in Sect. 6.3.
- Table 4:
Intrinsic properties of the final model of NGC 5907 in the different
bands. The absolute quantities (central emissivity, surface brightness and
total luminosity) depend on the central stellar surface density
and the radial and vertical scale length as given in Table 2.
The first row gives the central emissivity
and the second row shows the enhancement factor
with respect to the exponential extrapolation form
to the midplane. The mass-to-light ratios (M/L)0at the midplane are very low due to the high fraction young stars.
The next two rows give the central face-on
surface brightness L(R=0) in physical and observational units.
the total apparent luminosity with the distance module
quantifies the additional
stellar light compared to pure exponential vertical profiles.
The average stellar mass-to-light ratios
of the model are the same for each vertical
profile and the whole disc. For the exponential extrapolation
is constant all over the disc and equals the
M/L of the model at large heights z.
