Abstract

We summarize recent developments in the use of spectral methods for analyzing large numbers of orbits in N-body simulations to obtain insights into the global phase space structure of dark matter halos. The fundamental frequencies of oscillation of orbits can be used to understand the physical mechanism by which the shapes of dark matter halos evolve in response to the growth of central baryonic components. Halos change shape primarily because individual orbits change their shapes adiabatically in response to the growth of a baryonic component, with those at small radii become preferentially rounder. Chaotic scattering of orbits occurs only when the central point mass is very compact and is equally effective for centrophobic long-axis tube orbits as it is for centrophilic box orbits.
