The Dynamics Group at the Max-Planck-Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics is led by Ortwin Gerhard.

Our research is focused on the dynamics, dark matter, and evolution of galaxies, galactic nuclei, and galaxy clusters. Many of our projects involve interpretation of observational results and are carried out in collaboration with observational groups at MPE and elsewhere. We also host the website of the Planetary Nebula Spectrograph (PN.S) project here

For information about members of the group, current projects, publications, and results of previous research see the subsequent pages.
