Anisotropic Jeans models of stellar kinematics: second moments including proper motions and radial velocities
This is an addendum to the paper by Cappellari (2008, MNRAS, 390, 71), which presented a simple and efficient method to model the stellar kinematics of axisymmetric stellar systems. The technique reproduces well the integral-field kinematics of real galaxies. It allows for orbital anisotropy (three-integral distribution function), multiple kinematic components, supermassive black holes and dark matter. The paper described the derivation of the projected second moments and we provided a reference software implementation. However only the line-of-sight component was given in the paper. For completeness we provide here all the six projected second moments, including radial velocities and proper motions. We present a test against realistic N-body galaxy simulations.
