J/A+A/456/467      New sample of bright galaxy pairs in UZC     (Focardi+, 2006)

A new sample of bright galaxy pairs in UZC. Focardi P., Zitelli V., Marinoni S., Kelm B. <Astron. Astrophys. 456, 467 (2006)> =2006A&A...456..467F (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Galaxy catalogs ; Radial velocities Keywords: galaxies: general - galaxies: fundamental parameters - galaxies: interaction Abstract: We present a new sample of bright galaxy pairs extracted applying an objective selection code to the UZC catalog. The sample is volume-limited to Mzw=-18.9+5logh and contains 89 galaxy pairs. We analyze the kinematical, morphological, and photometrical properties of galaxies belonging to this sample.
