ABSTRACT We investigate the correlations among stellar mass (M? ), disk scale length (Rd ), and rotation velocity at 2.2 disk scale lengths (V2.2 ) for a sample of 81 disk-dominated galaxies (disk/total ≥ 0.9) selected from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). We measure V2.2 from long-slit Hα rotation curves and infer M? from galaxy i-band luminosities (Li ) and g?r colors. We ?nd logarithmic slopes of 2.60±0.13 and 3.05±0.12 for the (forward ?t) Li ? V2.2 and M? ? V2.2 relations, somewhat shallower than most previous studies, with intrinsic scatter of 0.13 dex and 0.16 dex, respectively. Our direct estimates of the total-to-stellar mass ratio within 2.2Rd , assuming a Kroupa (2002) IMF, yield a median ratio of 2.4 for M? > 1010 M⊙ and 4.4 for M? = 109 ? 1010 M⊙ , with large scatter at a given M? and Rd . The typical ratio of the rotation speed predicted for the stellar disk alone to the observed rotation speed at 2.2Rd is ? 0.65. The distribution of scale lengths at ?xed M? is broad, but we ?nd no correlation between disk size and the residual from the M? ? V2.2 relation, implying that the M? ? V2.2 relation is an approximately edge-on view of the disk galaxy fundamental plane. Independent of the assumed IMF, this result implies that stellar disks do not, on average, dominate the mass within 2.2Rd . We discuss our results in the context of infall models where disks form in adiabatically contracted cold dark matter halos. A model with a disk-to-halo mass ratio md = 0.05 provides a reasonable match to the Rd ? M? distribution for spin parameters λ ranging from ? 0.04 ? 0.08, and it yields a reasonable

Explaining the wide range of halo-to-disk mass ratios within 2.2Rd requires signi?cant scatter in md values, with systematically lower md for galaxies with lower M? or lower stellar surface density Σ? .

The tight correlation between luminosity and rotation speed is one of the fundamental characteristics of the disk galaxy population (Tully & Fisher 1977, hereafter TF). With stellar population modeling and HI gas measurements, this correlation can be expressed in terms of stellar mass or total baryonic mass, in place of luminosity (Bell & de Jong 2001; McGaugh et al. 2000). The form and tightness of the TF relation are critical tests for theoretical models of galaxy formation (e.g., Cole & Kaiser 1989; Kau?mann, White, & Guiderdoni 1993; Cole et al. 1994; Eisenstein & Loeb 1996; Steinmetz & Navarro 1999; Avila-Reese, Firmani, & Hernandenz 1998; Firmani & Avila-Reese 2000). In classic models of disk galaxy formation by dissipative gravitational collapse (e.g., Fall & Efstathiou 1980; Gunn 1983; Dalcanton, Spergel, & Summers 1997; Mo, Mao, & White 1998, hereafter MMW), the quantities that determine the disk rotation curve are the concentration parameter of the dark matter halo, the ratio of the disk baryonic mass to the total mass of the halo, and the disk scale length, which is determined by its angular momentum. These theoretical models suggest that disk size could be an important additional parameter in disk galaxy correlations (Shen, Mo, & Shu 2002; Dutton et al. 2005). A strong correlation between disk size and TF residual is also expected if disks are “maximal” and therefore make a dominant contribution to the observed rotation speed (Courteau & Rix 1999). In this paper, we investigate the correlations among rotation speed, stellar mass, and scale length in a sample of disk galaxies selected from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS; York et al. 2000; Abazajian et al. 2004). We have obtained long-slit optical spectra of these galaxies and used them to extract Hα rotation curves. We use the g-r color of each galaxy to estimate its stellar mass-to-light ratio M? /L, and therefore its stellar mass, following the prescription of Bell et al. (2003). We apply bulge-disk decomposition to the SDSS i-band images to select a sample of disk-dominated galaxies (disk/total ≥ 0.9) and to measure the disk exponential scale length. We estimate circular velocities at 2.2 disk scale lengths, where the rotation curve of a self-gravitating exponential disk reaches its maximum (Freeman 1970). We use the estimated stellar masses to separate the disk and halo contributions to the total mass within this radius, and we investigate the halo-to-disk ratio as a function of stellar mass and disk scale length. We discuss our results in the context of MMW-style disk galaxy models.

–3– 2. Photometric and Spectroscopic Observations

The SDSS galaxy redshift survey has an unprecedented combination of large area, depth, and photometric quality, thanks to the combination of a large format camera (Gunn et al. 1998), high throughput multi-object spectrographs, careful calibration procedures (Fukugita et al. 1996; Hogg et al. 2001; Smith et al. 2002), and an e?cient series of data reduction and targeting pipelines (Lupton et al. 2001; Stoughton et al. 2002; Strauss et al. 2002; Blanton et al. 2003a; Pier et al. 2003; Ivezic et al. 2004). We have selected a sample of ? 200 galaxies from the main galaxy sample (Strauss et al. 2002) of the SDSS redshift survey for follow-up dynamical study with long-slit Hα spectroscopy. Our full sample covers a representative selection of galaxies in the absolute magnitude range ?18 ≥ Mr ≥ ?22, with no morphological pre-selection other than an i-band isophotal axis ratio cut of b/a < 0.6, needed to allow accurate inclination corrections to observed rotation velocities. We impose a minimum redshift, cz ≥ 5000 km s?1 , so that peculiar velocities do not cause large uncertainties in distance (and thus luminosity and size). We adopt a luminosity-dependent maximum redshift of 9000 km s?1 (?18 ≥ Mr > ?19.5), 11000 km s?1 (?19.5 ≥ Mr > ?20.5), and 15000 km s?1 (?20.5 ≥ Mr ), so that galaxies are spatially resolved and the distribution of absolute magnitudes is roughly ?at over the range ?18 to ?22. Analysis of the Tully-Fisher relation and its residuals for this broadly representative galaxy sample, including detailed discussion of the sample de?nition, spectroscopic observations and data reduction procedures, and rotation curve ?ts, will be presented by Pizagno et al. (in preparation, hereafter P05). Here we summarize the relevant aspects of these procedures and describe the selection of the disk-dominated galaxy sample that is analyzed in this paper. In a series of observing runs between June 2001 and April 2004, we obtained long-slit spectra covering the Hα wavelength region for a total of 234 galaxies in the velocity and absolute magnitude ranges described above, using the TWIN spectrograph on the Calar Alto 3.5-m telescope (189 galaxies) and the CCDS spectrograph on the MDM 2.4-m telescope (45 galaxies). Typical exposure times were 30 minutes at Calar Alto and 60 minutes at MDM, with instrumental setups yielding FWHM resolution ? 1.48? and ? 1.93? respectively. We obtained usable Hα rotation curves A A for 170 galaxies, ? 70% of the input sample, with the remainder showing insu?cient extended Hα emission or (in a few cases) excessively irregular velocity pro?les. We applied the bulge-disk decomposition program GALFIT (Peng et al. 2002) to the i-band images of these 170 galaxies, taken from the SDSS corrected frames. Speci?cally, we ?t each galaxy with a combination of an inclined exponential disk and a bulge with a surface brightness pro?le exp[?(r/rs )1/n ] (Sersi? 1968), c with the index n constrained to the range 0.5 ≥ n ≥ 5.0. For this paper, we select those galaxies with disk-to-total luminosity ratio fd ≥ 0.9. These systems may not be perfectly described by smooth exponential disks, but the addition of a bulge containing more than 10% of the light does not allow a better ?t. We rejected ?ve galaxies for which the discrepancy between the GALFIT exponential disk position angle and the SDSS isophotal position angle, used for the long-slit observations, would lead to a velocity di?erence of more than 10%. We con?rmed the disk-dominated nature of the remaining 81 galaxies by visual inspection.

–4– We note that fd ≥ 0.9 is a stronger morphological cut than that in most TF samples, which also include some galaxies with signi?cant bulges. We adopt the more stringent cut mainly because it allows us to de?ne scale length and velocity measures, Rd and V2.2 , that are insensitive to ambiguities of bulge-disk decomposition. Also, while the bulge formation mechanisms in late-type galaxies are uncertain, our sample gives theoretical modelers a clear target to make predictions for: nearly bulgeless galaxies, with an absolute magnitude distribution that is approximately ?at in the range ?18 ≤ Mr ≤ ?22. We compare results from this sample to those of our full, morphologically representative sample in P05. We compute galaxy luminosities using SDSS Petrosian ?uxes and colors using SDSS model colors, both K-corrected to redshift z = 0 using Blanton et al.’s (2003b) kcorrect v3.1b. We compute distances using the SDSS heliocentric redshifts corrected to the rest frame of the Local Group barycenter (Willick et al. 1997), assuming a cosmological model with ?m =0.3, ?λ =0.7, and Hubble constant H0 = 70 km s?1 Mpc?1 . We incorporate a distance uncertainty corresponding to 300 km s?1 when calculating disk scale length and luminosity uncertainties, to account for the typical amplitude of small scale peculiar velocities (Strauss & Willick 1995). Figure 1 shows the distribution of our sample galaxies in the color-magnitude plane. Crosses show galaxies that did not have enough Hα emission for extended rotation curves. Although most of these failed galaxies are either red or low luminosity, the galaxies with successful rotation curve measurements cover all populated areas of the color-magnitude plane, so there are no major categories of galaxies in this absolute magnitude range that are missing from our sample. Filled circles show the disk-dominated subset analyzed in this paper. These again span all populated regions of the color-magnitude plane, though the distribution is somewhat bluer than that of the full sample, and the fraction of diskdominated systems is higher at low luminosity. The surface brightness distribution (not shown) is similar to that of the full sample, though the low and intermediate luminosity galaxies that are eliminated by the fd ≥ 0.9 cut tend to be above the median surface brightness. The GALFIT total magnitudes in i-band are 0.12 magnitudes brighter than SDSS Petrosian magnitudes on average, with a standard deviation of 0.10 magnitudes, in reasonable agreement with expectations (see Strauss et al. 2002; Graham et al. 2005). We use the Petrosian magnitudes for our analysis so that our results refer to quantities easily accessible from the SDSS database. The spectroscopic data were dark subtracted, ?at-?elded, and linearized using standard IRAF procedures, as outlined by Massey, Valdes, & Barnes (1992). Following Courteau (1997), we extract 2-D spectra along the spatial direction and measure the Hα emission line centroid at each location along the slit. The Hα emission line centroid uncertainty is between 2 and 12 km s?1 depending on the signal-to-noise ratio of the emission line. We de?ne the rotation curve as the spatial variation of the emission line centroids along the major axis of the galaxy. We ?t galaxy rotation curves with an arc-tangent function, which has a minimal number of parameters while still describing the global shape of typical rotation curves adequately (Courteau 1997). Speci?cally, we use a Levenberg-

–5– Marquardt χ2 minimization routine (Press et. al. 1992) to ?t the data with the functional form V (r) = V0 + 2 Vcirc arctan π r ? r0 rt , (1)

where V0 is the central velocity, Vcirc is the asymptotic circular velocity, r is the position along the slit, r0 is the center of the rotation curve (where V = V0 ), and rt is the turnover radius at which the rotation curve begins to ?atten. When performing the ?t, we add 10 km s?1 in quadrature to the observational error on each Hα data point, to account for non-circular motions and to ensure that parameters are determined by the overall shape of the rotation curve rather than the high signal-to-noise data points in the inner parts of the rotation curve with small uncertainties. We adopt the circular velocity at 2.2 disk scale lengths as our measure of rotation speed. The rotation curve of an isolated exponential disk peaks at this radius (Freeman 1970), and Courteau (1997) shows that this velocity measure produces the tightest TF relation. We infer the observed obs rotation velocity (V2.2 ) by evaluating equation (1) at r = 2.2 × Rd , where Rd is the i-band disk obs scale length determined by GALFIT. The uncertainty in V2.2 is determined using the covariance of obs the parameter errors returned by the Levenberg-Marquardt routine. We correct V2.2 for inclination by using the GALFIT-determined disk axis ratio and the equation
obs V2.2 = V2.2

1 ? (b/a)2 1 ? 0.192




where 0.19 is the assumed intrinsic axis ratio for an edge-on disk and b/a is the measured i-band axis ratio. Observational estimates of the intrinsic axis ratio vary from 0.10 to 0.20 depending on galaxy type (Haynes & Giovanelli 1984). We choose 0.19, typical for spiral galaxies, and note that the range 0.10 ? 0.20 corresponds to a small variation (typically ?1 km s?1 ) in V2.2 . As discussed in detail by P05, roughly 1/3 of our galaxies have rotation curves that are still rising at the outermost Hα point. We have included these galaxies in our sample, but we have checked that excluding them makes minimal di?erence to our results. Table 1 lists the SDSS identi?er, distance, i-band luminosity, g ?r color, stellar mass, GALFIT disk fraction, disk exponential scale length, and rotation velocity V2.2 for the 81 galaxies that comprise our disk-dominated sample. The luminosities and colors are corrected for internal extinction, and stellar masses are computed from these extinction-corrected quantities, as described in the next section.



Figure 2a show the i-band TF relation for our sample of 81 disk-dominated galaxies. Following standard practice, we correct luminosities, and colors, for internal extinction based on the disk axis ratio and luminosity, using the prescription of Tully et al. (1998) interpolated to the central wavelength of the SDSS i-band. We convert luminosities to solar units using Mi,⊙ = 4.56 (Bell

–6– et al. 2003). The three representative error crosses in the lower right show the 90th-percentile, 50th-percentile, and 10th-percentile values of the observational uncertainties. We add 1/3 of the inclination correction in quadrature to the luminosity uncertainty to represent the uncertainty in the inclination correction itself. Luminosity uncertainties are dominated by this inclination correction uncertainty and by the 300 km s?1 peculiar velocity uncertainty. The solid line shows our “forward” ?t to the observed TF relation. Speci?cally, we ?t a relation y = a(x ? x0 ) + b (3)

with y = log Li /L⊙ , x = log V2.2 /km s?1 , assuming a Gaussian intrinsic scatter of dispersion σ in y at ?xed x, in addition to observational uncertainties. We determine maximum likelihood values of a, b, and σ by maximizing ln (L) = ? 1 2
2 2 ln (σ 2 + σi,y + a2 σi,x ) ? i i

(axi + b ? yi )2 + constant , 2 2 2(σ 2 + σi,y + a2 σi,x )


where σi,x and σi,y are the observational uncertainties for data point i (see P05 for discussion). We determine the 1σ errors on a, b, and σ by repeating this procedure for 100 bootstrap subsamples of the full data set and taking the dispersion as the uncertainty. We choose the reference value x0 so that there is essentially no covariance between the errors in the slope a and intercept b. For the forward TF relation, we obtain (Li /10 L⊙ ) = 1.84(±0.09)

V2.2 149.6 km s?1




The intrinsic scatter is σ=0.13 dex = 0.33 magnitudes, comparable to that of other TF studies (e.g., Courteau 1997; Kannappan, Fabricant, & Franx 2002). The dotted line shows the inverse TF ?t, in which we assume that there is Gaussian intrinsic scatter of logV2.2 at ?xed logLi instead of the reverse. Forward and inverse ?ts correspond to di?erent hypotheses about the intrinsic distribution of the correlated quantities, and they yield di?erent slopes except in the limit of zero intrinsic scatter. Our inclusion of the intrinsic scatter as a ?t parameter means that points with small observational errors do not get inappropriately large weights in determining the slope and normalization, a di?erence from many previous analyses. However, for this sample the intrinsic scatter is small enough that the derived slope is not highly sensitive to the ?tting procedure (for 1/2.9 example, the inverse ?t is V2.2 ∝ Li ). Our slope is shallower than that found by some previous studies, e.g., Verheijen (2001), who ?nds a slope of ≈ 4.5 in K ′ -band, or Kannappan, Fabricant, & Franx (2002), who ?nd a slope of ≈ 4.0 in R-band. However, it agrees well with the r-band slope of 2.54 found by Courteau (1997), whose sample criteria and analysis procedures are most similar to ours. We discuss possible contributions to slope di?erences in more detail below. Our estimates of the slopes, intercepts, and intrinsic scatter of these and all other bivariate relations ?t in this paper are listed in Table 2. Residuals from these relations show no discernible correlation with axis ratio, which indicates that our inclination corrections are accurate in the mean, even if they are not

–7– perfect on a galaxy-by-galaxy basis. The Appendix presents a Monte Carlo test for Malmquist-type biases in our sample selection and analysis and shows that they are small compared to our quoted statstical errors, with an e?ect ? 0.01 on the forward TF slope. The point types in Figure 2a encode galaxy color, relative to the expectation for the galaxy’s i-band luminosity. We ?t a linear mean relation to the sample’s (g-r) vs. log Li relation and divide the sample into three nearly equal parts based on the residual from this relation. Squares represent galaxies redder than the mean by 0.02 mag or more, circles represent galaxies bluer by 0.05 mag or more, and triangles show the remaining galaxies. There is a slight tendency for red galaxies to lie below the mean TF relation, as one might expect given the higher mass-to-light ratios or red stellar populations, but the trend is weak relative to the scatter. In Figure 2b, we have converted galaxy i-band luminosities to stellar masses, using the prescription of Bell et al. (2003) to infer each galaxy’s stellar mass-to-light ratio from its (g-r) color. We use color in preference to the spectroscopic methods of Kau?man et al. (2003) because the SDSS ?bers cover only the central regions of these relatively nearby galaxies and may not sample a representative stellar population. Bell et al. (2003) adopt a “diet Salpeter” initial mass function (IMF) chosen so that stellar disks have the maximum mass allowed by rotation curve constraints. At each g-r color, we multiply their stellar mass-to-light ratios by 0.71 to correspond to a Kroupa IMF, which better represents direct observational estimates of the IMF (see Bell et al. 2003 for further discussion). Speci?cally, we calculate stellar masses using the relations M? /M⊙ = (Li /L⊙ ) (M? /Li ), log (M? /Li ) = ?0.222 + 0.864 × (g ? r) + log 0.71, (6a) (6b)

where the two coe?cients are from Table 7 of Bell et al. (2003). We use inclination corrected luminosities and colors, again based on the Tully et al. (1998) prescriptions, but the inclination e?ects are small (typically less than 10%) because galaxies move along a locus of roughly constant M? as their luminosities and colors are corrected for extinction. We add an error contribution to M? that is one-third of the applied inclination correction. Points in Figure 2b are again coded by galaxy g-r color residual, now computed as a function of stellar mass. The conversion to stellar mass has removed the slight trend of TF residual with color residual, as one might expect if stellar mass is the more fundamental quantity. Solid and dotted lines show our best-?t forward and inverse relations, which are listed in Table 1. The forward relation is 3.05±0.12 V2.2 . (7) (M? /1010 M⊙ ) = 2.32(±0.10) 155.6 km s?1 The best-?t intrinsic scatter is 0.16 dex, slightly higher than 0.13 dex found for the Li ? V2.2 relation. Some of this increase could re?ect galaxy-to-galaxy variations in stellar populations or extinction properties, which would change the true M? /L ratios at ?xed g ? r color; we have assumed a deterministic relation between g ? r and M? /L and have not included any scatter about

–8– this relation in our observational error budget. The BD01 models have 0.1 dex scatter in stellar mass-to-light ratio (M? /Li ) at ?xed color. The short-dashed line shows the best-?t stellar-mass TF relation found by Bell & de Jong (2001, hereafter BD01), using Verheijen’s (2001) data for the Ursa Major cluster. We have multiplied the normalization of their relation (the I-band ?t with mass-dependent inclination correction from their Table 2) by 0.71 to adjust to the Kroupa IMF assumed here. Distances are calibrated to H0 ≈ 70 km s?1 Mpc?1 in both cases, though there could be some uncertainty in the relative distance normalization from the peculiar velocity of Ursa Major. The two relations agree at V2.2 ? 200 km s?1 , but the BD01 relation is substantially steeper than ours, with a slope of 4.49 ± 0.23 vs. 3.05 ± 0.12. At V2.2 ? 100 km s?1 the BD01 relation traces the lower envelope of our data points and lies ? 0.4 dex below our best-?t relations. Di?erences in the samples and analysis methods include: our use of the updated Bell et al. (2003) stellar population models in place of the BD01 models, our use of a disk/total ≥ 0.9 cut vs. BD01’s more generic “late type galaxy” selection, our use of V2.2 as a velocity measure in place of Verheijen’s (2001) V?at measure used by BD01, and our “?eld” (or, more accurately, random) environment selection vs. their cluster sample, Since Verheijen (2001) ?nds a steep K ′ -band TF relation for the Ursa Major galaxies, BD01’s steep slope (relative to ours) appears to be intrinsic to the sample, not a consequence of any di?erences in stellar population modeling. Our disk/total cut also seems unlikely to be the main source of di?erence, since the low-V2.2 galaxies that are in our sample lie signi?cantly above any of the BD01 data points, and the relatively small number of low-V2.2 galaxies excluded by our cut lie on or above the best-?t relation. To investigate the importance of velocity de?nition di?erences, we used the data of Courteau (1997), who lists V2.2 and the maximum velocity Vmax derived from a 5-parameter ?t to optical rotation curves. The typical ratio of Vmax to V2.2 is higher for less massive galaxies, and since V?at is likely to track Vmax more closely than V2.2 , the trend goes in the right direction to explain the discrepancy. However, if we scale up our V2.2 values using a mean correction derived from the Courteau (1997) data, then our M? ? V2.2 slope changes to 3.47, still much shallower than BD01, and the gap between the relations is still ? 0.2 dex in M? at V2.2 ? 100 km s?1 . Thus, it appears that velocity de?nition di?erences can account for roughly half of the di?erence between our results and BD01’s. We reach a similar conclusion by comparing Verheijen’s (2001) r-band TF data points to our own (see P05). The most plausible source we can identify for the remaining gap is a systematic di?erence in properties of ?eld and cluster spirals at low luminosity. Reconciling the two measurements requires the cluster galaxies to rotate faster by ? 0.1 ? 0.2 dex at ?xed M? . Fully addressing this di?erence requires a large sample with a range of environments and both HI and optical data, so that one can mimic selection and analysis procedures used by di?erent authors. Our stellar mass TF relation is also shallower than the baryonic TF relation derived by McGaugh et al. (2000), Mbar /1010 M⊙ = 2.12(V /155.6 km s?1 )3.98 (for H0 = 70 km s?1 Mpc?1 ). Here Mbar is the sum of the stellar mass and the gas mass inferred from HI measurements. We cannot directly estimate Mbar for our galaxies because we do not have HI data, but Kannappan (2004)

–9– reports a statistical correlation (with substantial scatter) between gas-to-stellar mass fraction and SDSS u ? r color, log(G/S) = 1.46 ? 1.06(u ? r). If we apply this correction to our sample on a galaxy-by-galaxy basis, we obtain Mbar /1010 M⊙ = 2.86(V /155.6 km s?1 )2.89 , shallower than equation (7) because low mass galaxies have higher gas content. The average mass increase is 0.2 dex at V2.2 ? 100 km s?1 and 0.05 dex at V2.2 ? 200 km s?1 . Our slope is substantially shallower than that found by McGaugh et al. (2000), who combine several data sets obtained in di?erent bands.1 The McGaugh et al. (2000) sample covers a much wider mass range than ours, extending to circular velocities V ? 30 km s?1 . The di?erence between optical linewidth 2V2.2 and the HI linewidth W20 used by McGaugh et al. (2000) could become more important at these low velocities, partly explaining the di?erence in slope, but we do not see an easy way to fully reconcile the results. Figure 3 plots the GALFIT disk scale length Rd against stellar mass. The dotted line shows the best-?t mean relation Rd = 3.87(±0.11) M? 2.21 × 1010 M⊙

kpc .


However, scatter about this mean relation is very broad. Points are coded by the residual from this best-?t relation, with squares, triangles, and circles representing the largest, intermediate, and smallest 1/3 of the galaxies at a given luminosity. Theoretical expectations for the distribution of disk galaxies in the space of stellar mass, scale length, and circular velocity are clearly described by, e.g., Fall & Efstathiou (1980), MMW, Dalcanton, Spergel, & Summers (1997), Mo & Mao (2000), Shen, Mo, & Shu (2002), and Courteau et al. (2003). In this paper, we use a modeling approach similar to that of MMW to place our observational results in theoretical context. The central solid line in Figure 3 shows the predicted Rd ? M? relation for galaxies with a ratio md =0.05 of stellar mass to total halo mass formed in an NFW halo (Navarro, Frenk, & White 1997) with concentration parameter c=10 and spin parameter λ=0.06. We compute this relation using equation (28) of MMW, which includes the e?ects of disk self-gravity and adiabatic contraction of the inner regions of the halo. We set the speci?c angular momentum of the disk equal to that of the halo (jd /md = 1 in MMW’s notation), so our quantity λ is equivalent to their λ′ . While the predicted relation is steeper than our best ?t, it roughly describes the central trend of our data points. Upper and lower solid lines show the predictions for λ=0.08 and 0.04, respectively. The envelope of these lines encloses roughly the central 80% of the data points. The distribution of halo spin parameter in N-body simulations is approximately log-normal with a mean λ ≈ 0.04 and dispersion σlnλ ≈ 0.5 (Bullock et al. 2001). For md =0.05, reproducing the Rd -M? relation requires λ values in the upper half of this distribution, so disks would either
McGaugh et al. (2000) also assumed a constant stellar mass-to-light ratio in each band. Had they included a color dependence, they would have derived a still steeper slope, since fainter galaxies are generally bluer and therefore have lower M? /L.

– 10 – have to form in the higher spin halos or have a higher speci?c angular momentum than the dark matter. Since systems with low angular momentum may be more likely to form a substantial bulge, and thus be omitted from our disk-dominated sample, this preferential sampling of the high end of the λ-distribution is not implausible. However, the three solid lines in Figure 3 can also be produced (almost exactly) with a disk-to-halo mass fraction md =0.025 and λ of 0.03, 0.045, 0.06; the lower md shifts the predicted relations to lower M? , and lower λ values are required to compensate. Conversely, for md =0.10, the λ values that yield similar Rd ? M? curves are 0.055, 0.08, 0.11. Figure 4 again shows the stellar-mass TF relation, M? vs. V2.2 , but points are now coded by their residual from the best-?t Rd ?M? relation, with squares, triangles, and circles representing the largest, intermediate, and smallest galaxies, respectively, just as in Figure 3. There is no evident separation among these three sets of points, i.e., no tendency of large or small galaxies to lie above or below the mean M? ? V2.2 relation. A plot of M? ? V2.2 residual against Rd ? M? residual (shown as inset) is simply a scatter plot. As noted by Courteau & Rix (1999) and Courteau et al. (2003), the lack of correlation between TF residual and disk scale length argues against the “maximal disk” hypothesis, in which the stellar disk provides a large fraction of the rotational support at 2.2Rd , 2 since in this case V2.2 ∝ GM? /(2.2Rd ). We concur with both their observational result (indeed, our residual correlation appears even weaker) and with their conclusion. Filled squares in Figure 4 show model predictions for disks with mass fraction md = 0.05 and the spin parameter λ = 0.06 that yields the central solid line of Figure 3, with total halo masses of Mh = 4 × 1010 M⊙ , 1.89×1011 M⊙ , and 1.39×1012 M⊙ . (Following MMW, we de?ne the halo mass within a virial radius whose mean interior density is 200 times the critical density.) We again assume an initial NFW halo concentration c = 10 and compute Rd using MMW’s equation (28), but we compute the response of the halo to the disk using the improved adiabatic contraction approximation of Gnedin et al. (2004), with code kindly provided by Oleg Gnedin. With these parameters, the model reproduces the slope and normalization of our measured M? ? V2.2 relation as well as the Rd -M? relation. Horizontal lines attached to these points show the e?ect of changing the spin parameter to λ = 0.04 and λ = 0.08, corresponding to the lower and upper lines in Figure 3. Larger disks have weaker self-gravity and therefore lower V2.2 , while compact disks make a substantial contribution to V2.2 and therefore spin faster. However, the predicted di?erence between large and small disks is small enough that it could plausibly be swamped by the scatter seen in Figure 4. Filled triangles in Figure 4 show models with md = 0.025 and λ = 0.045, which also reproduce the central line of Figure 3, for the same three halo masses (and c = 10). Lowering md reduces both M? and the disk contribution to V2.2 , but the shift is not exactly parallel to the M? ? V2.2 relation, so the model predictions for md = 0.025 lie below the central trend of the data, by ? 0.1 ? 0.2 dex. However, a choice of IMF with fewer low mass stars would reduce M? /Li ratios at ?xed color and could bring down the data points to agree with the md = 0.025 predictions. Because of the lower disk mass fraction, variations of λ that reproduce the spread in the Rd ? M? relation

– 11 – (λ = 0.03 ? 0.06) produce only small shifts in V2.2 at ?xed M? . Filled circles show models with md = 0.10 and λ = 0.08. The model predictions now lie above the central trend of the data. Adopting a more bottom-heavy IMF could raise the data points and remove this discrepancy, but the md = 0.10 model predicts a substantial change of V2.2 over the range λ = 0.055 ? 0.11 that reproduces the spread in the Rd -M? relation. For md = 0.10, the compact galaxies (open circles) should lie noticeably to the right of the large galaxies (open squares) in Figure 4, and they do not. In other words, md = 0.10 disks in adiabatically contracted, c = 10, NFW halos are too close to maximal to be consistent with the absence of a size-TF residual correlation. It is di?cult to put this discrepancy in fully quantitative terms because a viable model would have to specify what parameters other than λ are varying to produce the intrinsic scatter in the M? ? V2.2 relation. We will investigate this question in future work. Figure 5a repackages the information in Figures 3 and 4 by plotting the rotation velocity predicted for the stellar disk, V?,2.2 = GM? 2.2Rd

[1.32 × 0.65fd + (1 ? fd )]1/2 ,


against the observed rotation velocity V2.2 . The factor 0.65 in the brackets is the fraction of the disk mass within 2.2Rd , and the factor of 1.32 accounts for the ?attened geometry of the disk potential (Freeman 1970; Binney & Tremaine 1987). The (1 ? fd ) term represents the contribution of the bulge, which we assume to lie entirely within 2.2Rd ; this contribution is small, since fd ≥ 0.9 for our sample. In Figure 5a, we use the mean value of Rd at the galaxy’s M? , from the best-?t relation shown in Figure 3 and listed in Table 1. This plot simply tilts the stellar mass TF relation to account for the increase of average disk size with stellar mass. The solid line shows the best-?t (forward) relation, 1.16±0.05 V?,2.2 V2.2 . (10) = (0.64 ± 0.01) 156 km s?1 156 km s?1 The slope is just slightly steeper than the unit slope predicted for pure self-gravitating disks, but 2 2 the typical o?set is a factor of ? 0.65. Since velocities add in quadrature, Vtot = V?2 + Vh , the normalization of equation (9) implies a typical ratio of Vh /V? ? 1.2 of the halo and stellar disk circular velocities at 2.2Rd . The intrinsic scatter in V?,2.2 at ?xed V2.2 is 0.057 dex. If we apply Kannappan’s (2004) color-based estimate of gas-to-stellar mass ratios to compute the total disk contribution Vd,2.2 instead of V?,2.2 , then the normalization of equation (10) rises slightly, to 0.71, and the slope changes to 1.07, a nearly constant ratio of disk mass to dark halo mass within 2.2Rd . In Figure 5b, we use each galaxy’s actual scale length, instead of the mean scale length from the Rd ? M? relation, when computing V?,2.2 . The slope and normalization of the best-?t relation are virtually unchanged, but the intrinsic scatter is nearly two times larger, 0.105 dex instead of 0.058 dex. Furthermore, the compact galaxies (circles) lie systematically above the mean relation (high V?,2.2 at a given V2.2 ), and the large galaxies (squares) lie systematically below. Thus, even though the slope of the V?,2.2 -V2.2 relation is close to unity, the value of V?,2.2 is, on a galaxy-by-galaxy basis,

– 12 – a worse predictor of circular velocity than the stellar mass alone. Dashed lines in Figure 5 show V?,2.2 = 0.85V2.2 , which Sackett (1997) describes as a good approximation to the standard “maximal disk” hypothesis.2 Our direct estimates with the Kroupa (2002) IMF lie below the maximal disk prediction, and they would continue to do so with the Kannappan (2004) gas correction. The increase of scatter between Figures 5a and 5b, another manifestation of the uncorrelated TF and disk size residuals, implies that this gap is not simply a consequence of underestimating M? /L ratios; dark halos must provide an important contribution to rotational support at 2.2Rd . Figure 6a plots the inferred ratio of the total mass within 2.2 disk scale lengths to the stellar mass within 2.2 disk scale lengths, as a function of stellar mass. The total mass is Mh,2.2 + M?,2.2 with 2.2Rd 2 2 (V2.2 ? V?,2.2 ), (11) Mh,2.2 = G M?,2.2 = 0.65fd M? + (1 ? fd )M? , and V?,2.2 given by equation (8). The total-to-stellar mass ratio has a ?at trend with considerable scatter for M? ≥ 1010 M⊙ , with a median value of ? 2.4. For M? < 1010 M⊙ , the median ratio is higher (? 4.4) in agreement with previous results (e.g., Persic, Salucci, & Stel 1996), and the scatter is larger. This increased mass ratio corresponds to the steeper than unit slope of the V?,2.2 -V2.2 relation in Figure 5; the increase is reduced but not eliminated if we use the Kannappan (2004) gas correction to estimate baryonic masses instead of stellar masses. Points in Figure 6a are again coded by residual from the Rd -M? relation, and the separation of circles (compact galaxies) and squares (di?use galaxies) shows that the larger galaxies, at ?xed M? , have higher halo-to-stellar mass ratios within 2.2Rd , as one might expect. While the scatter in disk sizes explains some of the scatter in Mh,2.2 /M?,2.2 , Figure 6b shows that much of the scatter must arise from another source. Here we plot Mh,2.2 /M?,2.2 against ? ? Rd /Rd (M? ), where Rd (M? ) is the mean disk scale length at the galaxy’s stellar mass based on the best-?t Rd -M? relation (dotted line of Figure 3). Points are now coded by galaxy stellar mass, with M? < 1010 M⊙ shown by pentagons, M? > 1010.7 M⊙ shown by stars, and intermediate mass ? objects shown as crosses. At a ?xed Rd /Rd (M? ), there is substantial scatter in Mh,2.2 /M?,2.2 . The systematically higher halo-to-stellar mass ratios of low mass galaxies are even clearer here than in Figure 6a. The three solid curves in Figure 6b show the predictions of models with md =0.05 and NFW halo concentrations of c = 5, 10, and 20. Along each sequence, the value of λ determines the value ? of Rd , and we set Rd (M? ) to be the model prediction for λ=0.06, tracking the central solid line of Figure 3. For these calculations we have assumed M? = 1010 M⊙ , but the curves are the same for any choice of M? . To the extent that there is a central trend of the data points, the model curves describe it reasonably well, but it appears that a range of halo concentrations cannot account for the large scatter in Mh,2.2 /M?,2.2 at ?xed disk size. The upper and lower dotted curves show predictions
Speci?cally, Sackett (1997) states that in maximal disk decompositions, the disk rotation speed is typically 7595% of the rotation speed at 2.2Rd , with the low end of the distribution populated by galaxies with large bulges, which would be absent from our sample.

– 13 – ? for md = 0.025 and md =0.10, respectively, with c=10 and Rd (M? ) computed assuming λ=0.045 (for md =0.025) and λ=0.08 (for md =0.10). The envelope of these curves contains most of the data points, though there are a few with lower dark matter fractions. In the context of MMW-style disk galaxy models, where md , c, and λ are the parameters that determine disk properties, a substantial spread in md is required to explain the observed distribution of galaxies in the (M? , V2.2 , Rd ) space. In principle, the rotation curve shape can provide additional constraints on the disk mass fraction and its variation with galaxy properties (e.g., Persic & Salucci 1988; Persic, Salucci, & Stel 1996). However, our rotation curves are not very well resolved spatially, and modeling rotation curve shapes requires speci?c assumptions about dark halo pro?les, so we have not attempted to exploit these constraints here. Zavala et al. (2003) analyze the ratio of total mass to baryonic mass in a literature sample of disk galaxies and conclude that it correlates more directly with surface mass density than with luminosity or scale length individually. Figure 7 plots this correlation for our data set, using the mean stellar surface density within 2.2 scale lengths as the surface density measure. There is indeed a steady correlation over nearly two orders of magnitude in surface density, somewhat tighter than the correlations in Figure 6, though still with signi?cant scatter and occasional large outliers. Most signi?cantly, one can see that the total-to-stellar mass ratios for low surface density, high mass galaxies are similar to those of typical low mass galaxies with similar surface density. This result suggests, as argued by Zavala et al. (2003), that the dependences of the mass ratio on galaxy mass and scale length can be understood as largely re?ecting a more fundamental dependence on surface density. The distribution of our data points in Figure 7 is similar to the distribution found by Zavala et al. (2003), though their sample is constructed to include more low surface brightness galaxies. Large ?lled squares show model predictions for md = 0.05, halo masses Mh = 4 × 1010 M⊙ , 1.89×1011 M⊙ , and 1.39×1012 M⊙ , and spin parameter λ = 0.06. Diagonal lines attached to these points span the range λ = 0.04 ? 0.08, with low-spin disks having high Σ? and low Mh,2.2 /M?,2.2 . Filled triangles and circles show corresponding predictions for md = 0.025 and 0.05, with halo mass 1.89×1011 M⊙ and the λ values that reproduce the three Rd ? M? lines in Figure 3. The data roughly follow the trend predicted for λ variations or md variations as drivers of surface brightness variations. At ?xed md and λ, a change of halo mass does not change Mh,2.2 /M?,2.2 , so the continuity of the trend for di?erent mass galaxies again suggests that high mass galaxies have higher md , not simply higher Mh .


Summary and Discussion

We have examined the correlations among stellar mass, disk scale length, and rotation velocity at 2.2Rd for a sample of 81 disk-dominated galaxies selected from the SDSS main galaxy redshift sample. The SDSS selection allows us to choose systems with a roughly ?at distribution of absolute magnitude over the range ?18 ≤ Mr ≤ ?22 at redshifts such that peculiar velocities induce rela-

– 14 – tively small distance uncertainties. SDSS multi-color photometry allows us to assign stellar masses to galaxies based on their i-band luminosities and g-r colors, using the prescription of Bell et al. (2003) converted to a Kroupa (2002) IMF. We use the SDSS i-band images to perform 2-d bulgedisk decomposition with GALFIT (Peng et al. 2002). The de?ning morphological characteristics of our sample are SDSS isophotal axis ratio b/a < 0.6 and GALFIT i-band disk-to-total luminosity ratios fd ≥ 0.9. We do not apply any environmental pre-selection, so our sample should be representative of the range of environments in which galaxies of these morphological characteristics and absolute magnitudes are found. Our principal observational results are as follows: 1. We ?nd a best-?t (forward) i-band TF relation (Li /1010 L⊙ ) = 1.84(V2.2 /150 km s?1 )2.60 , with an estimated intrinsic scatter of 0.13 dex, or 0.33 magnitudes. The slope is shallower than that found by some previous analyses (e.g., Verheijen 2001; Kannappan, Fabricant, & Franx 2002) but is similar to that of Courteau (1997), whose sample selection and analysis methods are closest to those here. Possible sources of di?erence include the environmental properties of the sample (“?eld” vs. “cluster”), the morphological criteria (disk/total ≥ 0.9 vs. more general “disk galaxy” selection), the adopted velocity measure (V2.2 vs. V?at or HI line width), and the ?tting procedures. The intrinsic scatter is similar to that found for previous samples, though it rises substantially if we do not restrict the sample to disk-dominated galaxies (see P05). There is a weak trend for galaxies with redder than average colors to lie below the best-?t TF relation (low Li ). 2. We ?nd a best-?t (forward) stellar mass TF relation (M? /1010 M? ) = 2.32(V2.2 /156 km s?1 )3.05 , with an estimated intrinsic scatter of 0.16 dex. The use of stellar mass removes the weak trend with color residual, suggesting that stellar mass plays a more fundamental role than luminosity in TF correlations. The slope is shallower than that found by BD01 for Ursa Major spirals, with good agreement at V2.2 ? 200 km s?1 but higher M? in our sample at V2.2 ? 100 km s?1 . Possible sources of di?erence again include range of environments, morphological criteria, velocity measure, and ?tting procedures. Our relation is also shallower than the baryonic mass TF relation of McGaugh et al. (2000), whose sample is more heterogeneous and extends to lower luminosities. For our sample, a statistical, color-based correction for gas-to-stellar mass fractions (Kannappan 2004) makes only a modest di?erence to the TF parameters. 3. The Rd ? M? distribution has a best-?t mean relation Rd = 4.0(M? /2.2 × 1010 M⊙ )0.24 kpc, but the distribution is broad, with roughly a factor of three range in disk scale length at ?xed M? . 4. There is no discernible correlation between residuals of the Rd ? M? relation and residuals of the M? ? V2.2 relation. At a given M? , compact galaxies do not rotate faster or slower than average. This result agrees with earlier analyses showing weak or negligible trends of TF residual with disk scale length or surface brightness (Zwaan et al. 1995; Courteau & Rix 1999; Verheijen 2001). As emphasized by Courteau & Rix (1999), the lack of correlation between TF residual and disk size implies that disks cannot, in most cases, make a dominant contribution to rotation velocities at 2.2Rd . This evidence for “sub-maximal” disks agrees with independent arguments

– 15 – based on disk scale heights and vertical velocity dispersions (Bottema 1993, 1995; Kregel, van der Kruit, & Freeman 2005). 5. Direct estimates of the stellar contribution to the rotation speed at 2.2Rd , based on the population synthesis mass-to-light ratios for a Kroupa (2002) IMF, yield a best-?t relation (V?,2.2 /156 km s?1 ) = 0.64(V2.2 /156 km s?1 )1.16 . Including estimated gas masses following Kannappan (2004) changes the intercept to 0.71 and the slope to 1.07. The low contribution from the stellar disk is consistent with the weak Rd -trend noted above, and it agrees well with Kregel, van der Kruit, & Freeman’s (2005) estimate of 0.53 ± 0.04 based on disk scale heights. Courteau & Rix (1999) give an estimate of 0.6, also in good agreement with our results. The scatter between V?,2.2 and V2.2 is larger (0.11 dex vs. 0.06 dex) if we use each galaxy’s actual Rd instead of the mean Rd at the galaxy’s M? , another sign of the weak correlation between size and rotation speed at ?xed M? . 6. The ratio of halo-to-stellar mass within 2.2Rd has a large range at a given M? . Median ratios are 2.4 for galaxies with M? > 1010 M⊙ and 4.4 for 109 M⊙ < M? < 1010 M⊙ . At any M? , compact galaxies have lower Mh,2.2 /M?,2.2 and large galaxies have higher Mh,2.2 /M?,2.2 , as expected. However, the spread in radius accounts for only a fraction of the scatter in halo-to-stellar mass ratio. Galaxies with a wide range of M? and Rd trace out a continuous correlation between halo-to-stellar mass and disk surface density, in agreement with Zavala et al. (2003), but the scatter about the mean trend is substantial. For early-type galaxies, the “fundamental plane” is close to a virial relation for the stellar component, σ 2 ? GM? /Re? (Djorgovski & Davis 1987; Dressler et al. 1987; Bernardi et al. 2002), and the scatter of the bivariate L ? σ relation is signi?cantly larger than the scatter about the fundamental plane. The near-virial form is naturally explained if stars dominate the central gravitational potential that determines the observed velocity dispersion, with only a modest contribution from dark matter (see Rusin & Kochanek 2005 and references therein). For disk galaxies, our results show the opposite: V2.2 is better correlated with M? (or L) than with GM? /Rd , making the M? ? V2.2 an essentially edge-on view of the disk galaxy fundamental plane. The minimal e?ect of disk size on V2.2 implies that dark matter must contribute a large fraction of the mass within the central two scale lengths of disk galaxies, in accord with our direct (but IMF-dependent) inference based on stellar mass-to-light ratios. Our conclusions on these points agree with those of Courteau & Rix (1999) and with the more recent analysis of Courteau et al. (2003), who investigate the scaling relations of disk galaxy properties in a larger but less tightly de?ned sample. To put our observational results in context, we have compared them to the predictions of theoretical models in which disks form by the dissipative collapse of gas in cold dark matter halos (Fall & Efstathiou 1980; Dalcanton, Spergel, & Summers 1997; MMW; Shen, Mo, & Shu 2002; Dutton et al. 2005). The scale length and rotation speed of a galaxy with speci?ed M? are determined in these models by the ratio of disk mass to halo virial mass (md ), the spin parameter (λ), and the concentration parameter (c) of the NFW halo. In practice, variations of c within the expected

– 16 – range have only moderate impact on Rd and V2.2 , in part because adiabatic contraction alters the inner regions of the dark matter halo. A model with md = 0.05 reproduces the observed Rd ? M? distribution if λ values range from ? 0.04 to ? 0.08, a span that omits the lower half and the extreme upper tail of the log-normal λ distribution predicted for dark matter halos (e.g. Bullock et al. 2001). For md = 0.025 and md = 0.10, the required values of λ are, respectively, lower by 25% and higher by ? 30%. The md = 0.05 model reproduces our measured M? ? V2.2 relation reasonably well, and it predicts a weak correlation between size and TF residual that could plausibly be washed out by the TF scatter. (Note, however, that such a model with ?xed md does not explain the magnitude of the inferred intrinsic scatter.) The md = 0.025 model predicts lower M? at a given V2.2 , so it would require a di?erent IMF (with fewer low mass stars) to be consistent with our data. The md = 0.10 model predicts slightly higher M? values at a given V2.2 , and it predicts substantial size-TF residual correlations because of its high mass disks. These strong residual correlations appear incompatible with our data. The model comparisons in Figure 6b suggest that no model with a single value of md will reproduce our observed distribution of data points: the large scatter in Mh,2.2 /M?,2.2 at ?xed ? Rd /Rd (M? ) can only be explained with scatter in the ratio of stellar mass to total halo mass. For our Kroupa (2002) IMF normalization, Figure 6b suggests md values in the range ? 0.025 ? 0.05 for galaxies with 109 M⊙ < M? < 1010 M⊙ , and ? 0.05 ? 0.10 for galaxies with M? ≥ 1010 M⊙ . Systematically lower md values for low mass galaxies are a plausible signature of more e?cient supernova feedback in shallow gravitational potential wells (Dekel & Silk 1986) or in galaxies that lack a con?ning envelope of shock-heated gas Keres et al. (2004). We have not attempted to develop a complete and self-consistent model for the distribution of disk mass functions and halo parameters needed to reproduce the observed, joint distribution of M? , Rd , and V2.2 . The results above suggest the outline of such a model: disk mass fractions span a substantial range, with a central value md ? 0.05 and systematically lower values for low mass galaxies, and the disk galaxy population samples mainly the upper half of the halo spin parameter distribution. Our observations provide the data needed to constrain more complete models of this sort, along the lines pursued by Shen, Mo, & Shu (2002) and Dutton et al. (2005), or to test the predictions of hydrodynamic simulations of disk galaxy formation (e.g. Navarro & Steinmetz 1997). Confrontations between these models and our data should lead to better understanding of the mechanisms that govern disk galaxy formation and the relations between dark and luminous matter in the inner regions of disk galaxies.

– 18 – A. Appendix

Random errors in galaxy distances or magnitudes can lead to biased estimates of TF parameters because there are more distant and faint galaxies to scatter in one direction than vice versa, and because objects can scatter across selection boundaries. Most discussions of these “Malmquist”type biases have focused on apparent magnitude limited samples, or on the systematic bias in the derived peculiar velocity ?eld (e.g., Lynden-Bell et al. 1988; Gould 1993; Teerikorpi 1993; Strauss & Willick 1995). Since our selection procedure is quite di?erent from those of most previous TF surveys, we have tested for Malmquist-type biases with a simple Monte Carlo experiment. The measurement errors in SDSS Petrosian magnitudes are generally small, and luminosity uncertainties are therefore dominated by line-of-sight peculiar velocities, which we have assumed in our analysis to be drawn from a Gaussian of dispersion 300 km s?1 . For our Monte Carlo sample, we assign random 3-d positions to 106 arti?cial galaxies and draw their absolute r-band magnitudes from the SDSS luminosity function of Blanton et al. (2003c). We assign each of these galaxies a circular velocity drawn from the best-?t i-band inverse TF relation listed in Table 2, with slope a = 0.346, intercept b = log V2.2 / km s?1 = 2.185 at log L/L⊙ = 10.293, and intrinsic scatter of σ = 0.048 dex in log V2.2 . For purposes of this experiment, we ignore the slight di?erence between i-band and r-band TF relations, since we only need a qualitatively realistic assignment for the test. We modify each galaxy’s redshift by a peculiar velocity drawn from a 300 km s?1 Gaussian, and we apply the same absolute-magnitude dependent redshift cuts that we used for our sample de?nition (see §2), using the apparent rather than true absolute magnitude. Finally, we randomly draw from this cut sample a subset of galaxies that matches the nearly ?at Mr distribution of our observed sample, selecting ten times as many arti?cial galaxies as observed galaxies in each absolute magnitude bin. Applying our maximum likelihood estimation method to this arti?cial sample yields inverse TF parameters a = 0.347, b = 2.184, and σ = 0.050, in excellent agreement with our input values. The forward TF parameters are a = 2.613, b = 10.26, and σ = 0.14 mag, in excellent agreement with the values of 2.603 ± 0.133, 10.266 ± 0.020, and 0.131 ± 0.015 derived for our observed sample (see Table 2). We conclude that any Malmquist-type biases in our sample de?nition or analysis are smaller than our quoted statistical errors. This small impact is not surprising, since the fractional distance errors are small and the velocity and absolute magnitude range of the sample are fairly large, making scatter across selection boundaries a minimal e?ect.

Note. — Local Group barycenter distances are in Mpc, for H0 = 70 km s?1 Mpc?1 . Luminosities are derived from SDSS Petrosian magnitudes and corrected for internal dust extinction following Tully et al. (1998). Colors are SDSS model colors corrected for internal extinction. The observed Petrosian magnitudes, model colors, helio-centric redshifts, and corrected frames can be obtained from the public SDSS DR2 server at http://www.sdss.org/dr2.

magnitude used instead of SDSS Petrosian, because of poor pipeline estimation of the total observed magnitude.

Note. — Bivariate relations are ?t with the model y=a(x-x0 )+b with a Gaussian intrinsic scatter of y at ?xed x, with dispersion σ. Errors listed for a, b, and σ are computed from 100 bootstrap trials, and the value of x0 is chosen so that errors in a and b are uncorrelated. Luminosities are in Li,⊙ , stellar masses in M⊙ , velocities in km s?1 , and radii in kpc.
aV ?,2.2 is computed using the mean disk scale length for the galaxy’s stellar mass. bV ?,2.2

is computed using the each galaxy’s measured scale length.

Fig. 1.— Distribution of sample galaxies in the color-absolute magnitude plane. Filled circles are the sample of 81 disk-dominated galaxies analyzed in this paper, and open circles are galaxies with fd less than 0.9. Crosses show galaxies with insu?cient extended Hα for useful rotation curve measurements.

Fig. 2.— (a) TF relation of our disk-dominated sample: inclination corrected i-band luminosity vs. circular velocity at 2.2 disk scale lengths. Circles, triangles, and squares show galaxies that are blue, intermediate, and red with respect to the mean color-absolute magnitude relation. Solid and dotted lines show the best forward and inverse ?ts to the data points (see Table 2 for parameters). (b) Same as (a), but with Li replaced by the estimated stellar mass M? . Here and in subsequent ?gures, M? is estimated from the i-band luminosity and a stellar mass-to-light ratio inferred from the g-r color following Bell et al. (2003) (see equation 6). The short-dashed line shows the best-?t stellar mass TF relation from BD01, adjusted to the Kroupa (IMF). In this and all subsequent ?gures, error crosses show the 90th, 50th, and 10th-percentile values of the observational errors.

Fig. 3.— Relation between disk scale length and stellar mass. The dotted line is the best-?t mean relation, and points are coded by distance from this relation. The central solid line shows the predicted relation for exponential disks formed in adiabatically contracted NFW halos with concentration c = 10, spin parameter λ = 0.06, and ratio md = 0.05 of disk mass to halo virial mass. Lower and upper solid lines show the model predictions for λ = 0.04 and 0.08, respectively. Other combinations of (md , λ) can produce similar results, as discussed in the text.

Fig. 4.— Stellar mass TF relation, as in Fig. 2b, but with points coded by their residual from the mean Rd ? M? relation, as in Fig. 3. The inset panel plots TF residual against Rd residual. In the main panel, ?lled squares show predictions for a model with md = 0.05, c = 10, and λ = 0.06, for three di?erent halo masses. Horizontal error bars on these points show the change in V2.2 when λ is changed to 0.04 (higher V2.2 ) or 0.08 (lower V2.2 ), the values corresponding roughly to the range of observed disk sizes. Filled circles and ?lled triangles show corresponding predictions for md = 0.10 and 0.025, respectively, with λ values chosen to produce the observed range of disk sizes for the corresponding md (see text for further discussion).

Fig. 5.— Comparison of the rotation velocity V?,2.2 predicted for each galaxy’s stellar component (eq. [8]) to the observed V2.2 . Points are coded by residual from the Rd ? M? relation, as in Fig. 3. In panel (a), V?,2.2 is computed using the mean Rd at each galaxy’s M? , while in panel (b) it is computed using each galaxy’s observed Rd . Solid and dotted lines show forward and inverse ?ts with parameters listed in Table 2. The dashed line shows the relation V?,2.2 = 0.85V2.2 expected for “maximal” disks (Sackett 1997).

Fig. 6.— (a) Ratio of total mass within 2.2Rd to stellar mass within 2.2Rd , as a function of M? . Points are coded by residual from the Rd ? M? relation. Filled circles with error bars show the mean and standard deviation for galaxies in the mass ranges log M? /M⊙ > 10.7, 10 ? 10.7, and < 10. (b) Similar to (a), but mass ratios are now plotted against the ratio of each galaxy’s scale length to the mean scale length for its stellar mass. Crosses, stars, and pentagons show galaxies with log M? /M⊙ > 10.7, 10 ? 10.7, and < 10, respectively. The three solid curves show predictions of models with md = 0.05 and concentration parameters c = 5, 10, and 20 (bottom to top). The dotted curves show predictions for md = 0.025 (upper) and md = 0.1 (lower), for c = 10.

Fig. 7.— Total-to-stellar mass ratio as a function of the mean stellar surface density within 2.2Rd . Stars, crosses, and pentagons represent high, intermediate, and low mass galaxies, as in Fig. 6b. The ?lled triangle, square, and circle with attached diagonal lines represent models with (md , λ) = (0.025, 0.045), (0.05,0.06), and (0.10,0.08), respectively, with c = 10 and a halo mass Mh = 1.89 × 1011 M⊙ . The points correspond to the three central models shown in Fig. 4, and lines show the e?ect of varying λ over the range that reproduces the observed range of Rd , as in Fig. 4. Additional ?lled squares show the md = 0.05 model for Mh = 4 × 1010 M⊙ (low Σ? ) and 1.39 × 1012 M⊙ (high Σ? ); the lines of varying λ would approximately parallel those of the central model.
