According to the hierarchical clustering scenario, galaxies are assembled by merging and accretion of numerous satellites of di†erent sizes and masses. This ongoing process is not 100% efficient in destroying all of the accreted satellites, as evidenced by the satellites of our Galaxy and of M31. Using published data, we have compiled the circular velocity distribution function (VDF) of galaxy satellites in the (V circ ) Local Group. We Ðnd that within the volumes of radius of 570 kpc (400 h~1… Expand
