May I summarize and please express any opposing variation or opinion.

The majority of stars in an elliptical galaxy are highly organized and move in elliptical orbits not necessarily in the same direction about a concentrated central mass of the galaxy. Orbital perturbations are fairly random but statistically homogeneous. This in turn maintains a fairly homogeneous distribution of stars that tend to become denser toward the center.

Thanks for all your help, Doug Ettinger
