Abstract : Interferometric observations at the 21 cm neutral hydrogen emission line have yielded information about the dynamics and structure of the compact galaxy II Zw 40. The neutral hydrogen follows a core-halo distribution with characteristic gaussian half-power widths of 52 arc sec and 350 arc sec. (Author)
