The H magnitude aperture data published by the Aaronson et al. collaboration over a 10-year period is collected into a homogeneous data set of 1731 observations of 665 galaxies. 96\% of these galaxies have isophotal diameters and axial ratios determined by the Third Reference Catalogue of Bright Galaxies (de Vaucouleurs et al. 1991), the most self-consistent set of optical data currently available. The precepts governing the optical data in the RC3 are systematically different from those of the…

Surface Photometric Calibration of the Infrared Tully-Fisher Relation Using Cepheid-based Distances of Galaxies
Infrared J and H surface photometry are carried out for nearby 12 galaxies whose distances have been accurately measured via Hubble Space Telescope Cepheid observations. Using the total, isophotal,
The Hubble Space Telescope Key Project on the Extragalactic Distance Scale. XXIV. The Calibration of Tully-Fisher Relations and the Value of the Hubble Constant
This paper presents the calibration of BVRIH-0.5 Tully-Fisher relations based on Cepheid distances to 21 galaxies within 25 Mpc and 23 clusters within 10,000 km s-1. These relations have been applied
A Multivariate Statistical Analysis of Spiral Galaxy Luminosities. I. Data and Results
We have performed a multiparametric analysis of luminosity data for a sample of 234 normal spiral and irregular galaxies observed in X-rays with the Einstein Observatory. This sample is
The Coma - Leo I Distance Ratio and the Hubble Constant
An Einstein X-Ray Survey of Optically Selected Galaxies. I. Data
We present the results of a complete Einstein imaging proportional counter X-ray survey of optically selected galaxies from the Shapley-Ames Catalog, the Uppsala General Catalogue, and the European
Lx-SFR relation in star-forming galaxies
We compare the results of Grimm, Gilfanov & Sunyaev and Ranalli, Comastri & Seti on the L X -SFR (X-ray luminosity-star formation rate) relation in normal galaxies. Based on the Lx-stellar mass
Galaxy distances in the nearby universe: corrections for peculiar motions
By correcting the redshift-dependent distances for peculiar motions through some peculiar velocity field models, we recover the true distances of an extensive, all-sky sample of nearby galaxies
We determine the rotation velocities of 108 spiral and irregular galaxies (XV-Sample) from first-order rotation curves from position-velocity maps, based on short 21-cm observations with the
Homogeneous Velocity-Distance Data for Peculiar Velocity Analysis. III. The Mark III Catalog of Galaxy Peculiar Velocities
This is the third in a series of papers in which we assemble and analyze a homogeneous catalog of peculiar velocity data. In Papers I and II, we described the Tully-Fisher (TF) redshift-distance
This is a progress report on our investigation of the scatter in the TF-relations and study of the Dark Matter component of spiral galaxies as a function of luminosity, morphology, scale length etc.
