J/AJ/129/682  Structural properties of S+S galaxies    (Hernandez-Toledo+, 2005)

The structural properties of isolated galaxies, spiral-spiral pairs, and mergers: the robustness of galaxy morphology during secular evolution. Hernandez-Toledo H.M., Avila-Reese V., Conselice C.J., Puerari I. <Astron. J., 129, 682-697 (2005)> =2005AJ....129..682H
ADC_Keywords: Photometry, UBVRI ; Morphology ; Galaxies, nearby Keywords: galaxies: fundamental parameters - galaxies: general - galaxies: interactions - galaxies: photometry - galaxies: spiral - galaxies: structure Abstract: We present a structural analysis of nearby galaxies in spiral-spiral pairs in optical BVRI bands and compare them with the structures of isolated spiral galaxies and galaxies in ongoing mergers. We use these comparisons to determine how galaxy structure changes during galaxy interactions and mergers. We analyze light concentration (C), asymmetry (A), and clumpiness (S) parameters, and use the projections of CAS parameter space to compare these samples. File Summary:

Globale Notes: Note (G1): CAS parameters are defined as follows: C = Concentration of light. Index defined as the ratio of the 80%-20% curve of growth radii (r80, r20): C=5*log(r80%/r_20%). A = Asymmetry. Index defined as the number computed when a galaxy is rotated 180° from its center and then subtracted from its prerotated image. S = Clumpiness. Index defined as the ratio of the amount of light contained in high-frequency structures to the total amount of light in the galaxy. Sep = apparent projected separation in paired galaxies expressed in units of the primary component diameter.
