Statistics of Associations Among IR Galaxies

Extract

In the course of expanding the search of Kleinmann et.al. (1988) for distant, infrared-luminous objects, we noticed (as is often remarked) that a large number of infrared-selected galaxies have close neighbors or show merger characteristics (e.g. tidal tails, distorted disks). Because the sample size is large (567 infrared galaxies and 2182 field galaxies), this sample is ideal for statistically examining the importance of interactions among infrared galaxies. In particular, we compare the nearest-neighbor distribution and the two-point correlation function of our sample with that of a control sample of field galaxies.
