II/256        Sternberg Supernova Catalogue, 2004 version    (Tsvetkov+, 2004)

The Sternberg Astronomical Institute Catalog of Supernovae and radial distributions of Supernovae of various types in Galaxies. Tsvetkov D.Yu., Pavlyuk N.N., Bartunov O.S. <Pis'ma Astron. Zh., 30, 803 (2004)> =2004PAZh...30..803T =2004AstL...30..729T
ADC_Keywords: Supernovae ; Surveys Abstract: We describe the Sternberg Astronomical Institute (SAI) catalog of supernovae. We show that the radial distributions of type-Ia, type-Ibc and type-II supernovae differ in the central parts of spiral galaxies and are similar in their outer regions, while the radial distribution of type-Ia supernovae in elliptical galaxies differs that in spiral and lenticular galaxies. We give a list a supernovae that are farthest from the galactic centers, estimate their relative expulsion rate, and discuss their possible origins. Description: The current version contains data on 2780 extragalactic supernovae (SNe) discovered from 1885 until January 6, 2004 and on their parent galaxies. SNe are ordered by Right Ascension of their parent galaxies. Data for parent galaxies were compiled from the following catalogues: RC3 (de Vaucouleurs et al., 1991, Cat. VII/155); UGC (Nilson, 1973. Cat. VII/26); PGC (Paturel et al., 1989, Cat. VII/119); MCG (Vorontsov-Velyaminov et al., 1962-1968, Cat. VII/62, VII/100); ESO (Lauberts, 1982, Cat. VII/34); CfA (Huchra et al., 1994, see Cat VII/193), and from van den Bergh (1994, Cat. J/ApJS/92/219). Main source of morphological types, major diameters and axial ratios was the RC3; the data from other sources have been reduced to the system of RC3. Photographic magnitudes of galaxies were adopted from the UGC and the PGC together with individual data from the literature. The sources of recession velocities or cz values were the RC3, the CfA, the PGC and IAU Circulars. Position angles were taken from the RC3, UGC and the ESO catalogues, and inclination angles were mainly derived from data in RC3 according to Holmberg (1958MeLu2.136....1H). Some data for SNe and parent galaxies were adopted from GCVS (Samus et al., 1995, Cat. II/205) File Summary:
