  • We analyze the three catalogs of nearby loose groups compiled by A. M. Garcia. She identified groups in a magnitude-limited redshift galaxy catalog, which covers about ~ of sky within cz = 5500 km s-1, using two methods, a percolation method and a hierarchical method. The free parameters of the group-selection algorithms were tuned to obtain similar catalogs of groups. The author also proposed a third catalog of groups, defined as a combination of the two. Each catalog contains almost 500… CONTINUE READING
