Fig. 12


Vrot,max/ ⟨ σ versus ϵ at rreff in our remnant bulges (blue and green empty stars for the bulges of the remnants with S0b and S0c progenitor, respectively) and in the bulges of the original S0 galaxies (blue and green filled stars for S0b and S0c), compared with observational data of bulges and elliptical galaxies (Kormendy 1982; Davies & Illingworth 1983; Davies et al. 1983; Bender 1988; Kormendy 1993). Data are labelled as shown in the legend. Solid lines: theoretical relation of V/σ-ϵ for rotationally flattened oblate spheroids with different velocity anisotropies δ (see Binney 2005). Filled grey triangles: location of the elliptical remnants of the binary mergers of disc galaxies with mass ratios from 1:1 to 3:1 by González-García & Balcells (2005).
