The gas content of peculiar galaxies: strongly interacting systems Casasola V., Bettoni D., Galletta G. <Astron. Astrophys. 422, 941 (2004)> =2004A&A...422..941C
ADC_Keywords: Galaxy catalogs ; Galaxies, peculiar ; Interstellar medium ; Infrared sources ; X-ray sources ; Carbon monoxide ; H I data Keywords: galaxies: catalogues - galaxies: ISM - galaxies: interacting Abstract: A study of the gas content in 1038 interacting galaxies, essentially selected from Arp (VII/74), Arp and Madore (VII/170), Vorontsov-Velyaminov (VII/236) catalogues and some of the published literature, is presented here. The data on the interstellar medium have been extracted from a number of sources in the literature and compared with a sample of 1916 normal galaxies. The mean values for each of the different ISM tracers (FIR, 21cm, CO lines, X-ray) have been estimated by means of survival analysis techniques, in order to take into account the presence of upper limits.
