As demonstrated by de Vaucouleurs (1956, 1975a, b, 1976), Abell (1961), Karachentsev (1966), Kiang and Saslaw (1969) and others, clusters of galaxies as well as groups of galaxies have a tendency to form second-order clusters of galaxies, often called superclusters. Recent statistical studies by the Princeton group (Davis, Groth and Peebles 1977, Seldner and Peebles 1977a) have confirmed this result. Statistical studies, however, give little information about the internal structure of second-order clusters.
