We study the distortions induced by peculiar velocities on the redshift-space correlation function of galaxies of different morphological types in the Pisces-Perseus redshift survey. Redshift-space distortions affect early- and late-type galaxies in different ways. In particular, at small separations the dominant effect comes from virialized cluster cores, where ellipticals are the dominant population. The net result is that a meaningful comparison of the clustering strength of different… Expand

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°),Expand
