Subject: Density slope oscillations in the central regions of galaxy and cluster-sized systems

The distribution of matter in halos has a variety of consequences ranging from the ability to verify dark matter models through structure growth to holding clues about the physical processes shaping and forming halos and the galaxies within. We present data from two papers describing the central regions of early type galaxies and galaxy clusters and along with dark matter N-body simulations, analyze and comment on "oscillations" present in central regions of their radial, total density profiles.
