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.
