Title
Intrinsic galaxy shapes and their correlations
Author
Abstract
We discuss the factors leading to spatial correlations in the observed shapes of galaxies and their implications for weak lensing measurements. Focusing on a model where the intrinsic correlations arise from angular momentum correlations, we examine the predicted shape correlations and how they may be distinguished from weak lensing.
