Determination of the relative inclination and the viewing angle of an interacting pair of galaxies using convolutional neural networks

Constructing dynamical models for interacting pair of galaxies as constrained by their observed structure and kinematics crucially depends on the correct choice of the values of the relative inclination ($i$) between their galactic planes as well as the viewing angle ($\theta$), the angle between the line of sight and the normal to the plane of their orbital motion. We construct Deep Convolutional Neural Network (DCNN) models to determine the relative inclination ($i$) and the viewing angle ($\theta$) of interacting galaxy pairs, using N-body $+$ Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) simulation data from the GALMER database for training the same...
