J/AJ/129/1237       SARS galaxy luminosity profiles              (Coenda+, 2005)

Photometric observations of Southern Abell Clusters Redshifts Survey clusters: galaxy luminosity profiles. Coenda V., Donzelli C.J., Muriel H., Quintana H., Infante L., Lambas D.G. <Astron. J., 129, 1237-1248 (2005)> =2005AJ....129.1237C

We have obtained the luminosity profiles for 507 galaxies, of which 232 (46%) have known redshifts. In order to fit the luminosity profiles, we used the de Vaucouleurs law for bulge systems and an exponential profile for disk systems, and we also fitted the Sersic's law (rn) to all galaxy profiles.
