Using the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) data release 4 (DR 4), we investigate the spatial distribution of low and high surface brightness galaxies (LSBGs and HSBGs, respectively). In particular, we focus our attention on the influence of interactions between galaxies on the star formation strength in the redshift range 0.01 < z < 0.1. With cylinder counts and projected distance to the first and fifth nearest neighbor as environment tracers, we find that LSBGs tend to have a lack of companions… 
On the environment of low surface brightness galaxies at different scales
We select a volume-limited sample of galaxies derived from the SDSS DR7 to study the environment of low surface brightness (LSB) galaxies at different scales, as well as several physical properties
