Abstract: The main goal of the PhD research described is to gain insight in the dynamical structure and evolution of galaxies, globular clusters and other stellar systems. For nearby stellar systems, realistic axisymmetric and triaxial dynamical models are constructed that fit their photometric and (two-dimensional) spectroscopic observations in detail. For early-type galaxies at higher redshift, the Fundamental Plane is used to investigate the evolution of their mass-to-light ratios. The connection of the results from both approaches allows a better understanding of the formation history of these stellar systems.
