Abstract The HI content of Hickson Compact Groups in the southern hemisphere is measured using data from the HI Parkes All-Sky Survey (HIPASS), and dedicated observations using the narrow band filter on the Multibeam instrument on the Parkes telescope. The expected HI mass of these groups was estimated using the luminosity, diameter, and morphological types of the member galaxies, calibrated from published data. Taking careful account of non-detection limits, the results show that the compact… 
Star formation histories of southern compact groups
JoEllen McBride: Star Formation Histories of Southern Compact Groups (Under the direction of Gerald Cecil) Compact group galaxies are a common phase in galaxy evolution and provide insight into the
Compact groups in theory and practice – II. Comparing the observed and predicted nature of galaxies in compact groups
We examine the properties of galaxies in compact groups (CGs) identified in a mock galaxy catalogue based upon the Millennium Run simulation. The overall properties of groups identified in projection
Choirs, H I galaxy groups: catalogue and detection of star-forming dwarf group members
Hα observations centred on galaxies selected from the H i Parkes All-Sky Survey (HiPASS) typically show one and sometimes two star-forming galaxies within the ∼15 arcmin beam of the Parkes 64 m H i
Integrated HI emission in galaxy groups and clusters
The integrated HI emission from hierarchical structures such as groups and clusters of galaxies can be detected by FAST at intermediate redshifts. Here we propose to use FAST to study the evolution
H i mapping of galaxies in six Group Evolution Multiwavelength Study groups
Here, we present Australia Telescope Compact Array (ATCA) H i maps of 16 H i sources in six Group Evolution Multiwavelength Study groups that were previously observed with the Parkes telescope. The
H i imaging of galaxies in X-ray bright groups
ABSTRACT Environment plays an important role in the evolution of the gas contents of galaxies. Gasdeficiency of cluster spirals and the role of the hot intraclu ster medium (ICM) in strippinggas from
Physical properties and environments of nearby galaxies
We review the physical properties of nearby, relatively luminous galaxies, using results from newly available massive data sets together with more detailed observations. First, we present the global
Chandra and XMM-Newton Observations of a Group of Galaxies HCG 62
We present results from Chandra and XMM-Newton observations of the bright group of galaxies HCG 62. The two cavities in the central region show no significant change of temperature compared with that
H i content in galaxies in loose groups
Gas deficiency in cluster spirals is well known and ram-pressure stripping is considered the main gas removal mechanism. In some compact groups too gas deficiency is reported. However, gas deficiency
Herschel-ATLAS: the surprising diversity of dust-selected galaxies in the local submillimetre Universe
We present the properties of the first 250 μm blind sample of nearby galaxies (15 < D < 46 Mpc) containing 42 objects from the Herschel Astrophysical Terahertz Large Area Survey. Herschel's


The Faint End of the Luminosity Function of Galaxies in Hickson Groups
We study the luminosity function of galaxies in Hickson groups using our recent redshift survey of galaxies in and around 17 of these groups. We find that the galaxies in these regions have a
Where is the neutral atomic gas in Hickson groups
We have analyzed the total HI contents of 72 Hickson compact groups of galaxies (HCGs) and the detailed spatial distributions and kinematics of HI within a subset of 16 groups using the high angular
Neutral hydrogen in compact groups of galaxies
Integrated H I profiles were detected for 34 of 51 Hickson compact groups (HCGs) of galaxies, and sensitive upper limits to the H I flux density were measured for the other 17. About 60 percent of
Systematic properties of compact groups of galaxies.
One hundred compact groups of galaxies have been identified by a systematic search of the Palomar Observatory Sky Survey red prints. Each group contains four or more galaxies within a 3 mag range,
Effects of Interaction-induced Activities in Hickson Compact Groups: CO and Far-Infrared Study
A study of 2.6 mm CO J = 1 → 0 and far-infrared (FIR) emission in a distance-limited (z < 0.03) complete sample of Hickson compact group (HCG) galaxies was conducted in order to examine the effects
The H I Content of Spirals. II. Gas Deficiency in Cluster Galaxies
We derive the atomic hydrogen content for a total of 1900 spirals in the fields of 18 nearby clusters. By comparing the H I-deficiency distributions of the galaxies inside and outside one Abell
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,
The HIPASS catalogue - I. Data presentation
The H I Parkes All-Sky Survey (HIPASS) catalogue forms the largest uniform catalogue of H I sources compiled to date, with 4315 sources identified purely by their H I content. The catalogue data
The HI Parkes All Sky Survey: southern observations, calibration and robust imaging
The acquisition of HI Parkes All Shy Survey (HIPASS) southern sky data commenced at the Australia Telescope National Facility's Parkes 64-m telescope in 1997 February, and was completed in 2000
Statistical Methods for Astronomical Data with Upper Limits
Statistical methods for calculating correlations and regressions in bivariate censored data where the dependent variable can have upper or lower limits are presented. Cox's regression and the
