The NGC 4410 group of galaxies provides us with a rare opportunity to study a nearby (97 h Mpc) example of a radio galaxy (NGC 4410A) embedded in an extended X-ray source, with evidence for star formation that can be readily spatially distinguished from regions dominated by the active galactic nucleus and shocks. We present broadband and narrowband optical images, along with optical and IUE ultraviolet spectroscopy, for the radio galaxy NGC 4410A and its companion, NGC 4410B. Our Hα + [N II… 

Chandra Observations of the Interacting NGC 4410 Galaxy Group

We present high-resolution X-ray imaging data from the ACIS-S instrument on the Chandra telescope of the nearby interacting galaxy group NGC 4410. Four galaxies in the inner portion of this group are

BVRI photometric analysis for the galaxy group NGC 4410

We present a BVRI CCD (Charge Coupled Device) surface photometry analysis of the galaxy group NGC 4410, which contains four galaxies in interaction. Along with our photometric study, we show residual


We present the results of a deep imaging survey of the Virgo cluster of galaxies, concentrated around the cores of Virgo subclusters A and B. The goal of this survey was to detect and study very low



Interstellar Gas in the NGC 4410 Galaxy Group

We present new radio continuum, 21 cm H I, and 2.6 mm CO data for the peculiar radio galaxy NGC 4410A and its companion NGC 4410B and compare with available optical and X-ray maps. Our radio

Shocked Gas and Star Formation in the Centaurus A Radio Galaxy

Observational evidence for shock-induced star formation is found in the northeast radio lobe of the nearby radio galaxy Centaurus A (NGC 5128). A gas cloud, recently detected in H I, is impacted by

The Extended Blue Continuum and Line Emission around the Central Radio Galaxy in Abell 2597

We present results from detailed imaging of the centrally dominant radio elliptical galaxy in the cooling-flow cluster Abell 2597, using data obtained with the Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2

H I, H II, and R-Band Observations of a Galactic Merger Sequence

We present high-quality aperture synthesis observations of the neutral hydrogen distribution in a sample of five galactic systems believed to be involved in progressive stages of merging: Arp295,

Molecular Gas in the Powerful Radio Nucleus of the Ultraluminous Infrared Galaxy PKS 1345+12

Millimeter CO (1 → 0) interferometry and high-resolution, Hubble Space Telescope 1.1, 1.6, and 2.2 μm imaging of the radio compact galaxy PKS 1345+12 are presented. With an infrared luminosity of ~2

Evolution of Gas and Stars in the Merger Galaxy NGC 1316 (Fornax A)

We present optical and archival X-ray data on the disturbed-morphology radio elliptical galaxy NGC 1316 (Fornax A), which displays numerous low surface brightness shells, loops, and tails. An

Far-infrared properties of Markarian galaxies with multiple nuclei - Warm dust emission in mergers

An investigation of coadded IRAS data is performed on 187 Markarian galaxies where distinguishing morphological characteristics or multiple optical nuclei are present. The far-IR properties of

Extended optical line emitting gas in powerful radio galaxies - statistical properties and physical conditions

The statistical results are presented of a search for extended optical emission-line gas in a sample of 38 predominantly powerful, flux-density selected, radio galaxies and of an additional five

Multiwavelength Observations of Collisional Ring Galaxies. III. Oxygen/Nitrogen Abundances and Star Formation Properties of Ring Knots

This is the third paper in a series examining the multiwavelength properties of a sample of northern ring galaxies, in which we present optical long-slit spectra and broadband BVR and JHK colors of

Global properties of infrared bright galaxies

Infrared flux densities of 182 galaxies, including 50 galaxies in the Virgo cluster, were analyzed using IRAS data for 12, 25, 60, and 100 microns, and the results were compared with data listed in
