Galaxy Properties from a Diameter-Limited Catalog
By Juan Enrique Cabanela Larrinaga (August 1999)
Resources Related to this Thesis:
- A PDF (9.6 MB) version of this thesis is available.
- Errata: There are some typos/errors that I discovered
post-publication in my thesis. The most egregious are on pages 162-164
that were the result of an attempt to move some figures around, the
errors mangle the meaning of what I am trying to get across. The
above PDF copy of my thesis has "comments" added correcting
the errors. I don't believe these comments print by default, but
they are viewable when looking at the document on your computer.
- The MAPS-NGP Catalog of 217,768
galaxies on POSS I plates within 30 degrees of the North Galactic Pole is
now available online! Be warned, the catalog is gigantic, about 65 Megabytes
uncompressed. More details on the MAPS-NGP
are available here.
- There are two previously published papers included in this Ph.D. thesis.
The refereed versions of these papers can be obtained online through the links
of Galaxy Spin Vectors in the Pisces-Perseus Supercluster with
the Arecibo Telescope", Cabanela, J.E. and Dickey, J. 1999, AJ, 118, 46.: This
paper outlined our technique for measuring spin vectors of galaxies with
HI diameters smaller than the Arecibo beam resolution.
Alignments in the Pisces-Perseus Supercluster -- Revisited," Cabanela,
J.E. and Aldering, G. 1998, AJ, 116, 1094.: This paper introduced the
MAPS-PP galaxy catalog. The MAPS-PP catalog data is available online through Vizier.
