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 covers (8.27 sr) of the sky (|b| > 20°) and appears to have a good completeness in redshift (97%). We select the sample on the basis of homogenized corrected total blue magnitudes in order to minimize systematic effects in galaxy sampling. We identify the groups in this sample by means of both the…

Galaxies in group and field environments: A comparison of optical–NIR luminosities and colors
We compare properties of galaxies in loose groups with those in field environment by analyzing the Nearby Optical Galaxy (NOG) catalog of galaxy systems. We consider as group galaxies objects
Groups of Galaxies in the Two Micron All Sky Redshift Survey
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
The Redshift-Space Two-Point Correlation Functions of Galaxies and Groups in the Nearby Optical Galaxy Sample
We use the two-point correlation function in redshift space, ξ(s), to study the clustering of the galaxies and groups of the Nearby Optical Galaxy (NOG) sample, which is a nearly all-sky (|b| > 20°),
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
The Observational Mass Function of Loose Galaxy Groups
We analyze the three catalogs of nearby loose groups compiled by A. M. Garcia. She identified groups in a magnitude-limited redshift galaxy catalog, which covers about ~ of sky within cz = 5500 km
Galaxy groups in the 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey: the catalogue
We construct a galaxy groups catalogue from the public 100-K data release of the 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey. The group identification is carried out using a slightly modified version of the
THE NGC 5846 GROUP: DYNAMICS AND THE LUMINOSITY FUNCTION TO M~R = - 12
We conduct a photometric and spectroscopic survey of a 10 deg2 region surrounding the nearby NGC 5846 group of galaxies, using the Canada-France-Hawaii and Keck I telescopes to study the population
Stellar Populations in Nearby Lenticular Galaxies
We have obtained two-dimensional spectral data for a sample of 58 nearby S0 galaxies with the Multi-Pupil Fiber/Field Spectrograph of the 6 m telescope of the Special Astrophysical Observatory of the
Galaxy evolution in nearby galaxy groups. III. A GALEX view of NGC 5846, the largest group in the local universe
We explore the co-evolution of galaxies in nearby groups (V < 3000 km/s) with a multi-wavelength approach. We analyze GALEX far-UV (FUV) and near-UV (NUV) imaging and SDSS u,g,r,i,z data of groups
Optical properties of the NGC 5328 group of galaxies
We present the results of a photometric and spectroscopic study of seven members of the NGC 5328 group of galaxies, a chain of galaxies spanning over 200 kpc (H 0 = 70 km s -1 Mpc -1 ). We analyse
