"Constraints on the shape of the dark halo of the Milky Way from SDSS observations"
The distribution and kinematics of stars in the halo of
the Milky Way can be used as tracers of the gravitational
potential around the Galaxy. Recent results from
imaging and spectroscopy of blue stars which probe
to distances of about 50 kpc from the Galactic center are
