J/A+A/393/57             Velocity field in the Local Group        (Terry+, 2002)

Local velocity field from sosie galaxies I: The Peebles'model. Terry J.N., Paturel G., Ekholm T. <Astron. Astrophys. 393, 57 (2002)> =2002A&A...393...57T
ADC_Keywords: Galaxy catalogs ; Radial velocities Keywords: galaxies: general - galaxies: distances and redshifts - cosmology: distance scale - methods: statistical Abstract: Pratton, Melott and McKee (1997ApJ...479L..15P) showed that the velocity field around clusters could generate an apparent distortion that appears as tangential structures or radial filaments. In the present paper we determine the parameters of the Peebles' model (1976ApJ...205..318P) describing infall of galaxies onto clusters with the aim of testing quantitatively the amplitude of this distortion. The distances are determined from the concept of sosie galaxies (Paturel, 1994A&A...289..711P) using 21 calibrators for which the distances were recently calculated from two independent Cepheid calibrations. We use both B and I-band magnitudes. File Summary:
