A simple method for making detailed measurements of seedling root systems is described. Photocopies of root systems are traced over by an operator using a digitizing system attached to a microcomputer. The computer calculates and prints the lengths of axis, laterals and sublaterals for each root system. Accurate measurements can be achieved with a degree of(More)
In PNA-mediated Whiplash PCR (PWPCR), autonomous molecular computation is implemented by the recursive polymerase extension of a mixture of DNA hairpins. Like other methods based on exhaustive search, however, application to problem instances of realistic size is prevented by the exponential scaling of thesolution space. The tendency of evolving populations(More)
We present 118 new optical redshifts for galaxies in 12 clusters in the Horologium-Reticulum supercluster (HRS) of galaxies. For 76 galaxies, the data were obtained with the Dual Beam Spectrograph on the 2.3 m telescope of the Australian National University at Siding Spring Observatory. After combining 42 previously unpublished redshifts with our new(More)
We present 547 optical redshifts obtained for galaxies in the region of the HorologiumReticulum Supercluster (HRS) using the 6dF multi-fiber spectrograph on the UK Schmidt Telescope at the Anglo Australian Observatory. The HRS covers an area of more than 12 × 12 on the sky centered at approximately α = 0319, δ = −5002. Our 6dF observations concentrate upon(More)
We review knowledge of galaxy structures obtained by their emitted light and in the local universe where they can be studied in great detail. We discuss the shapes of, and stellar motions within, galaxies, compositional clues derived from their spectra, and what luminous matter implies about their dark matter content. Implications on the current theory of(More)

We present multi-fiber spectroscopy and broadband imaging of early-type galaxies in five nearby rich clusters of galaxies. The main purpose was to look for “abnormal” spectrum galaxies (i.e., post-starburst galaxies which have strong Balmer absorption lines and emission line galaxies) in nearby clusters that are similar to those found by Caldwell et al.(More)
We present an updated catalog of 1300 objects in the field of M31, including 670 likely star clusters of various types, the rest being stars or background galaxies once thought to be clusters. The coordinates in the catalog are accurate to 0.2 ̋, and are based on images from the Local Group Survey (LGS, Massey et al. 2006) or from the DSS. Archival HST(More)
