We present color-magnitude and morphological analysis of 54 low-redshift ultraluminous infrared galaxies (ULIRGs; 0.018 < z < 0.265 with z median = 0.151), a subset of the Infrared Astronomical Satellite 1 Jy sample, in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). The ULIRGs are both bright and blue: they are on average 1 mag brighter in than the SDSS galaxies within the same redshift range, and 0.2 mag bluer in 0.1 g – 0.1 r. They form a group in the color-magnitude diagram distinct from both the red… Expand
