J/A+A/445/819       Systems of galaxies in Shapley supercluster (Ragone+, 2006)

Identification and study of systems of galaxies in the Shapley supercluster. Ragone C.J., Muriel H., Proust D., Reisenegger A., Quintana H. <Astron. Astrophys., 445, 819-825 (2006)> =2006A&A...445..819R

Using the SuperCOSMOS catalogue, we have assigned bj magnitudes to each galaxy in our compilation. The sample of galaxy systems was used to estimate the mass function of systems in the range 1013 to 1015M_☉/h-1. We computed a lower value to the total mass in the region of the Shapley Supercluster with this mass function. Using 15 mock catalogues we derived the mean mass that these kinds of systems have before comparing it with that obtained from the real data. File Summary:
