We present the results of applying a percolation algorithm to the initial release of the Two Micron All Sky Survey Extended Source Catalog, using subsequently measured redshifts for almost all of the galaxies with K < 11.25 mag. This group catalog is based on the first near-IR all-sky flux-limited survey that is complete to |b| = 5°. We explore the dependence of the clustering on the length and velocity scales involved. The paper describes a group catalog, complete to a limiting redshift of 104… 

The Structure of 2MASS Galaxy Clusters

We use a sample of galaxies from the Two Micron All Sky Survey Extended Source Catalog to refine a matched filter method of finding galaxy clusters that takes into account each galaxy's position,


A galaxy group catalog is constructed from the 2MASS Redshift Survey (2MRS) with the use of a halo-based group finder. The halo mass associated with a group is estimated using a “GAP” method based on

Catalog of nearby isolated galaxies in the volume z < 0.01

We present a catalog of 520 most isolated nearby galaxies with angular velocities VLG < 3500 km/s, covering the entire sky. This population of “space orphans” makes up 4.8% among 10 900 galaxies with


We present the results of the 2MASS Redshift Survey (2MRS), a ten-year project to map the full three-dimensional distribution of galaxies in the nearby universe. The Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS)


A galaxy group catalog is built from the sample of the 2MASS Redshift Survey almost complete to Ks = 11.75 over 91% of the sky. Constraints in the construction of the groups were provided by scaling

Compact and Isolated Groups of Galaxies in the Local Universe

Summary. An algorithm that searches for groups of galaxies in redshift catalogues has been applied to data obtained from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey DR5, which includes over half a million galaxies.

Galaxy groups and haloes in the seventh data release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey

In this work we introduce a new method to perform the identification of groups of galaxies and present results of the identification of galaxy groups in the seventh data release of the Sloan Digital

Galaxy groups and clouds in the local (z∼ 0.01) Universe

We present an all-sky catalogue of 395 nearby galaxy groups revealed in the Local Supercluster and its surroundings. The groups and their associations are identified among 10 914 galaxies at |b| >

The 2MASS Redshift Survey in the Zone of Avoidance

The Two Micron All-Sky Survey (2MASS) Redshift Survey was started two decades ago with the goal of mapping the three-dimensional distribution of an all-sky flux-limited (Ks < 11.75 mag) sample of


We investigate the relation between the projected morphology and the velocity dispersion of groups of galaxies using two recently compiled group catalogs, one based on the Two Micron All Sky Survey



Clusters of Galaxies in the Local Universe

We use a matched filter algorithm to find and study clusters in both N-body simulations artificially populated with galaxies and the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS). In addition to numerous checks

Nearby Optical Galaxies: Selection of the Sample and Identification of Groups

In this paper we describe the Nearby Optical Galaxy (NOG) sample, which is a complete, distance-limited (cz ≤ 6000 km s-1) and magnitude-limited (B ≤ 14) sample of ~7000 optical galaxies. The sample

The Southern Sky Redshift Survey

We report redshifts, magnitudes, and morphological classifications for 5369 galaxies with mB ≤ 15.5 and for 57 galaxies fainter than this limit, in two regions covering a total of 1.70 sr in the

The DEEP2 Galaxy Redshift Survey: First Results on Galaxy Groups

We use the first 25% of the DEEP2 Galaxy Redshift Survey spectroscopic data to identify groups and clusters of galaxies in redshift space. The data set contains 8370 galaxies with confirmed redshifts

Groups of galaxies. III. the CfA survey

We present a statistically homogeneous group catalog (CfA) based on the CfA redshift survey (Huchra et al.). Groups in the catalog are all density enhancements in redshift space of a factor greater

Assessing the Accuracy of Masses and Spatial Correlations of Galaxy Groups

Two algorithms for the identification of galaxy groups from redshift surveys are tested by application to simulated data derived from N-body simulation. The accuracy of the membership assignments by

Three-dimensional Identification and Reconstruction of Galaxy Systems within Flux-limited Redshift Surveys

We have developed a new geometrical method for identifying and reconstructing a homogeneous and highly complete set of galaxy groups within flux-limited redshift surveys. Our method combines

Clustering of galaxies in a hierarchical universe — III. Mock redshift surveys

This is the third paper in a series which combines N-body simulations and semi-analytic modelling to provide a fully spatially resolved simulation of the galaxy formation and clustering processes.

The C4 Clustering Algorithm: Clusters of Galaxies in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey

We present the C4 Cluster Catalog, a new sample of 748 clusters of galaxies identified in the spectroscopic sample of the Second Data Release (DR2) of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). The C4

Groups of galaxies in the Center for Astrophysics redshift survey

By applying the Huchra and Geller (1982) objective group identification algorithm to the Center for Astrophysics' redshift survey, a catalog of 128 groups with three or more members is extracted, and
