The Multiplicity Function of Galaxies

Abstract

The multiplicity function (MF) of groups and clusters of galaxies is determined using galaxy catalogues extracted from a set of Digitized Palomar Sky Survey (DPOSS) plates. The two different types of structures (of low and high richness) were identified using two different algorithms: a modified version of the van Albada method for groups, and a peak… (More)
