The Catalogue of Principal Galaxies (PGC) is an astronomical catalog published in 1989 that lists B1950 and J2000 equatorial coordinates and cross-identifications for 73,197 galaxies. The GALFA-HI Survey catalog is searched for compact, isolated HI clouds which are most similar to the expected HI characteristics of low mass dwarf galaxies. Third, we present hydrodynamic simulations of dwarf galaxies experiencing a … A dwarf galaxy is a small galaxy composed of about 1000 up to several billion stars, as compared to the Milky Way's 200–400 billion stars. SDSS catalog of stars in the Draco dwarf spheroidal galaxy Heather A. Rave1, Chongshan Zhao1, Heidi Jo Newberg1,BrianYanny2, Donald P.

Previously in 2011, Reines and her colleagues used VLA to discover the first massive black hole in a dwarf starburst galaxy in 2011. There are three dwarf galaxies (Id0202-0922, Id1448-0342, Id14503534) that can be considered dwarf analogs to the Antennae system (NGC 4038/4039). Published 2018 August 22, galaxies: dwarf; galaxies: evolution; galaxies: interactions; galaxies: star formation. S15 used catalog values of SFRs from Brinchmann et al. In these cases, the shells have a generally higher surface brightness than the tidal tails. In these cases, we use images from the Legacy survey. 2014; Paudel et al. Our morphological classification reveals that there are 98 interacting dwarf galaxy systems. We found that the global properties of UGC 7639, namely, its total absolute B-band magnitude, its whole spectral energy distribution, and morphology, are well matched by an encounter with a system … For this, we use a visual inspection of the true color images from the SDSS-III (Aihara et al. Despite these detailed studies of a few intriguing examples, very little is known about whether these systems are representative of dwarf–dwarf interactions in general. We list UV and optical photometric data that we use to estimate stellar masses and star formation rates. 1984) are mainly found in less dense environments. S.-J.Y. In fact, there are only three galaxies (Id10080227, Id12474709, and Id12561630) that have g − r color indices redder than 0.5 mag and they are also morphologically akin to the early-type galaxies. In the last column we provide the names of galaxies that we found in NED. It works to advance physics research, application and education; and engages with policy makers and the public to develop awareness and understanding of physics. Some of these resemble the dwarfs with the symmetrical-shaped shell features that were found in Paudel et al. However, in the last few years the observational evidence for mergers between dwarf galaxies has been growing (e.g., Martínez-Delgado et al. Dwarf–dwarf interactions might also be distinct from giant–giant interactions for another reason. We show the distribution of their mass ratios in Figure 7. Column (7): star formation rate. This catalog will also be invaluable for future follow- up studies of the Fornax cluster dwarf galaxies. For the central part of the Leo-I group (i.e., the M96 sub-group) an initial catalog of 50 dwarf galaxy candidates was produced byFerguson & Sandage(1990). Receive alerts on all new research papers in American Astronomical Society It is not always trivial to determine if the observed tidal features were created by merging dwarf galaxies, except when the interacting pairs have not completely merged yet—like, for example, in the Antennae-like dwarf galaxies (see the lower left panel of Figure 1) or simply interacting pairs (see the lower middle panel of Figure 1). (2012) concluded that early-type dwarf galaxies (106 < M* < 109) are extremely rare in the field. 2003; Martínez-Delgado et al. Only recently, with the advent of low-surface-brightness imaging techniques, and dedicated data reduction procedures, have we been able to better detect such features (Abraham & van Dokkum 2014; Duc et al. A size and magnitude limited catalog of dwarf galaxies in the area of the Fornax cluster. Its publishing company, IOP Publishing, is a world leader in professional scientific communications.

Therefore, we believe our sample will be more complete for these kinds of objects, as long as the interacting pairs show similar low-surface-brightness features as presented by our sample. Meanwhile dwarfs with ongoing star formation activity (such as blue compact dwarf galaxies (BCDs, Papaderos et al. One reason we see no clear enhancement in SFR could be because we do not attempt to control for separation distance.

This article presents a compilation and discussion of data relating to basic observational properties of all nearby (dwarf) galaxies within 3Mpc (the dwarf satellite systems of the Milky Way and M31 galaxies, the quasi-isolated dwarfs in the outer regions of the Local Group, and the isolated dwarf galaxies found in the surrounding of the Local Group out to the next nearest galaxy groups). 2009). Also, if we see a loop of a stellar stream around the galaxies, we identify this with an "L," e.g., Id09530702. were very helpful for visual confirmation of the presence of low-surface-brightness features around dwarf galaxies. Part of the reason for this could perhaps be that the tidal features that are produced are not as spectacular as those in merging giant galaxies, due to the relatively weak tidal forces acting upon them. Given the fairly good number statistics of our sample, we also attempt to understand their typical environments. The g − r color distribution shown in the right panel of Figure 5 reveals that this sample is overwhelmingly dominated by star-forming galaxies with similar colors to BCDs (Meyer et al. The comparison data are from Leroy et al. This means we are able to study merging dwarfs over a far greater range of merging stages, even when one dwarf has fully merged with another and the only indication of the event might be the remaining tidal features. [2] 40,932 coordinates (56%) have standard deviations smaller than 10″. (2009; see the gray plots), who studied the FUV-derived SFRs of local-volume (<11 Mpc), star-forming galaxies.

Next we list FUV-band and NUV-band magnitudes in columns 7 and 8, respectively. The presence of such structures, which is also predicted by numerical simulations, is now frequently observed in deep imaging surveys (Conselice & Gallagher 1999; Struck 1999; van Dokkum 2005; Smith et al. In Paudel et al. Bottom: examples of dwarfs that we classify as having interacted with another dwarf, categorized into three different types of tidal features (i.e., from left to right; interacting, tidal tail, and shell features). But we are keen to avoid including dwarfs that are interacting with a giant galaxy in this catalog. A catalog of merging dwarf galaxies in the local universe Sanjaya Paudel, Rory Smith, Suk Jin Yoo, Paula Calderón-Castillo, Pierre-Alain Duc We present the largest publicly available catalog of interacting dwarf galaxies. 2009). As the right panel of Figure 7 indicates, the relative line-of-sight velocity between the interacting dwarf pairs is relatively low, and only in two cases is it higher than 100 km s−1. The catalog is a renewed and expanded version of the Catalog of Neighboring Galaxies by Karachentsev et al. 2012). In this Local Volume (LV) sample, 108 dwarf galaxies still remain … (2009). For the rest of the physical parameters that we present in this work, values are given for the total system (e.g., magnitudes, g − r colors, stellar masses, and star formation rates (SFRs)). Thus, it is probable that many of these are not bound to their hosts, and in many cases our 700 kpc search radius and ±700 km s−1 velocity range search criteria are not robust enough to characterize whether our merging dwarfs are hosted by their nearest giant host. The total number of galaxies in this redshift range is ≈20,000. The classifications of morphological features are given in column 9. In contrast, we select interacting dwarf galaxies according to their observed tidal features, and it is not necessary to have a radial velocity for both interacting members. It includes 177 nearby merging dwarf galaxies of stellar mass M 10 M $_ {\sun}$ and redshifts z 0.02. Figure 7. So far, the study of interacting dwarf galaxies has largely been done on an individual basis, and lacks a sufficiently large catalog to give statistics on the properties of interacting dwarf galaxies, and their role in the evolution of low-mass galaxies. Both observations and numerical simulations concur that massive elliptical galaxies were likely formed predominantly by the mergers of disk galaxies (Springel et al. We show the redshift distribution of our catalog of dwarf galaxies in Figure 3. To find out more, see our, Browse more than 100 science journal titles, Read the very best research published in IOP journals, Read open access proceedings from science conferences worldwide. That may lead to an artificial reduction in the number of merging dwarf systems near giant galaxies. dSph galaxies are small (300 pc metallicity and ages greater than a few gigayears. In contrast, in this work we first aim to present a large catalog of merging dwarf systems, which will be helpful for a detailed study of various properties of interacting/merging dwarf galaxies in the future. Figure 6. Representative examples of dwarf galaxies with tidal features. Export citation and abstract © 2018. We list the positions (R.A. and decl.) The final sample consists of 177 systems with a limit in the combined stellar mass of the system of <1010 M⊙. We note that the list is neither complete nor fully comprehensive, but we hope it provides a useful starting point for readers with an interest in a specific object or merging system. Another part of the difference could emerge from the way we derived SFR. Because they are selected from visual inspection of low-surface-brightness features, this depends on the depth of the imaging survey, and on how well defined the tidal features are. For our sample of merging dwarf galaxies, we also collected neutral hydrogen (H i) masses from the CDS server.9 Since these data are assembled from various sources in the literature, note the heterogeneity of the results. (2015) reported a number of star-forming regions in the bridge connecting the two interacting galaxies, whereas such star formation is completely absent in Arp 104 (Gallagher & Parker 2010). Shell (Sh): the presence of shell features can be seen e.g., Id0155-0011. 2017). Column (9): satellite or not—1 for yes and 0 for no.

dwarf galaxy catalog

The Milky Way Galaxy A spiral galaxy, type Sbc, centered in Sagittarius. Download table as:  The Fornax Deep Survey (FDS), an imaging survey in the u', g', r', and i'-bands, has a supreme resolution and image depth compared to the previous spatially complete Fornax Cluster Catalog (FCC).
Methods: As a first step we used the SExtractor fine-tuned for dwarf galaxy detection, to find galaxies from the FDS data, covering a 26 deg 2 area of the main cluster up to its virial radius, and the area around the Fornax A substructure. For comparison, we also plot data from Lee et al. Nearly 3 billion years ago, a dwarf galaxy plunged into the center of the Milky Way and was ripped apart by the gravitational forces of the collision. Thus, we suspect that our selection criteria may be simply enhancing a real dependency on distance to the nearest giant galaxy. 2011, 2015). We also acknowledge the use of NASA's Astrophysics Data System Bibliographic Services and the NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED). A machine-readable version of the full table is available. In addition to this, prominent shell features (e.g., NGC 747 or NGC 7600) are also commonly observed in giant elliptical galaxies (Duc et al. Thus, they might better be described as stellar streams, in which case we add an "S," e.g., Id0222-0830. Accepted 2018 July 18 From this figure, it is clear that these interacting dwarfs galaxies do not differ from the trend established by local-volume, star-forming galaxies. We derive the g and r-band magnitudes. According to hierarchical cosmology, theory predicts that they are common in the early universe. 2014). It includes 177 nearby merging dwarf galaxies of stellar mass M * < 1010 M ⊙ and redshifts z < 0.02. For example, some interacting galaxies also posses multiple tidal features, like shells or stellar streams, even when the two parent dwarf galaxies are not yet fully merged. This is because the SDSS provides the best homogeneous imaging data. However, note that this magnitude cutoff is only to select the parent sample and we apply a further stellar mass constrain to select the final sample. However, more isolated dwarf interacting pairs do not suffer from this issue, as there is no uncertainty as to whether a giant galaxy is responsible for the observed fine structure (e.g., tidal streams, tails, shells, etc.). 2012; Paudel et al. Catalog of Stars in Milky Way Dwarf Satellite Galaxies . acknowledges the support by the Samsung Science & Technology Foundation under Project Number SSTF-BA1501-0. You will need to select a minimum of one corridor. 2006, AJ, 131, 1163) and is … Our sample's redshift range is <0.02, while the S15 sample galaxies have redshifts up to 0.07. We have conducted a systematic search for dwarf galaxies possessing tidal features, such as stellar streams, shells, or filaments, through a careful examination of the SDSS images. Interacting (I): in this class, we identify ongoing interactions between two dwarf galaxies. However, in some cases, the shell dwarfs do not show such symmetry in their shells (e.g., Id11253803) and in two we find that shell and tidal tails features coexist with each other (Id11253803 and Id11292034). This may potentially lead to a difference in the star formation efficiency and overall evolutionary history of dwarf galaxies compared to giants. However, for this particular work, we focus on dwarf–dwarf interactions. For the aperture photometry, procedures similar to those applied for the SDSS images are used. Since they are mostly star-forming, almost all are detected in FUV-band and NUV-band GALEX all-sky survey images. Only 41 out of the 177 candidate dwarf–dwarf interaction systems have giant neighbors within a sky-projected distance of 700 kpc and a line-of-sight radial velocity range ±700 km s−1, and compared to the LMC–SMC, they are generally located at much larger sky-projected distances from their nearest giant neighbors. 2012; Rich et al. The last gray bar represents the number of merging dwarf systems that have more than 10 neighbor galaxies. In addition, 1 million objects were cataloged in the 2MASS Extended Source Catalog (2MASX). This is the first publicly available catalog in this vein. We encourage the completeness of the catalog to be viewed cautiously, as there may be many possible biases in our selection procedure. In any case, we find that there is no significant difference in the phase-space diagram of dwarf interacting pairs (I class) and the rest of the sample. When comparing S15's sample with only interacting pairs (I class), we find a significant difference in mass ratio for the member dwarf galaxies of the interacting pairs. In addition to this, in some cases, we further sub-classify them according to the details of their observed low-surface-brightness features; see below. Another interesting difference is that S15 found there is an enhanced SFR between dwarf galaxies at small separations from their partner, compared to a control sample of isolated dwarf galaxies. Our sample is overwhelmingly dominated by star-forming galaxies, and they are generally found significantly below the red sequence in the color–magnitude relation. We show a simple histogram of the number of galaxies (which include both giants and dwarfs) found in the search area in Figure 11. 2005). In S15's sample, the pair galaxies needed to have a separation velocity of less than 300 km s−1, which means they required that there be a measured radial velocity for both galaxies. Representative examples of the different morphological classes by which we categorize our merging dwarf galaxies. Distribution of the logarithm of the stellar mass of merging dwarf systems. We find that a significant fraction, 30 out 177, of merging dwarf systems have no neighbors, not even another dwarf galaxy, within our search area.

It collects data on the following galaxy observables: angular diameters, apparent magnitudes in far-UV, B, and K s bands, Hα and H I fluxes, morphological types, H I-line widths, radial velocities, and distance estimates. Numbers have also been assigned for the other galaxies, although for those galaxies not in the original PGC catalogue, it is not recommended to use that number as a name.[2]. Tidal tail (T): simply defined as the presence of amorphous tidal features, mostly tidal streams or plumes, which cannot be placed into the above classifications, e.g., Id08092137. Updated versions of the … 2014; Crnojević et al. Wed, Nov 25, 2020. Find out more. But certainly dwarf galaxies, by nature, are inherently low-surface-brightness systems and thus the tidal features emerging from them are often even more low-surface-brightness, making them challenging to detect. It is based on the Lyon-Meudon Extragalactic Database (LEDA), which was originally started in 1983. In the case of interacting systems, when the galaxies involved are well separated (class I), the apertures are chosen in two different ways. A plethora of observational studies now support the conclusion that mergers between galaxies are frequent phenomena. Figure 5. Note. The maximum mass ratio is 120 in the case of Id14392323. (2017), we studied three dwarf galaxies and, with help of idealized numerical simulation, found that they had suffered a very recent (in last few hundred Myr), near equal mass mergers that explained their symmetry. 2007; Tal et al. Much work has been done to understand the physical processes driving galaxy evolution in the mergers of massive galaxies. Background. 2008). Low-mass galaxies are also typically dominated by exponential disks. However, because of our past experiences, we often suspect a particular origin according to the appearance of the observed low-surface-brightness tidal features. Using an amateur 0.14-m aperture telescope, astronomers have observed a nearby spiral galaxy known as M63 (or NGC 5055). The GALEX is operated for NASA by the California Institute of Technology under NASA contract NAS5-98034. Figure 12 shows postage images prepared from fits images downloaded from various archives. A previous study of interacting pairs of dwarf galaxies, (Stierwalt et al. The Sagittarius Stream is a stream of stars in polar orbit around the Milky Way leeched from the Sagittarius Dwarf. The derived magnitudes were corrected for the Galactic extinction using Schlafly & Finkbeiner (2011), but not for internal extinction. We show dwarf interacting pairs with circles. 2017). Some 30 possess shell features and the rest (49) show tidal tails of different forms. Whitmore6, A. Mok5, J.E. It has been shown by many observational and theoretical studies that during the intermediate phases of interactions, large-scale tidal interactions trigger the formation of peculiar features like shells, streams, bridges, and tails (Toomre & Toomre 1972; Eneev et al. 2005; Courtois & Tully 2015). (2015) reported interactions between dwarf galaxies where the overall morphological appearance is similar to that of the well known giant system Arp 104. The Catalogue of Principal Galaxies (PGC) is an astronomical catalog published in 1989 that lists B1950 and J2000 equatorial coordinates and cross-identifications for 73,197 galaxies. In conclusion, we present a large set of interacting and merging dwarf systems, including aperture photometry in UV and optical bands, as well as stellar masses, SFRs, gas masses ,and stellar mass ratios. The mission of the AAS is to enhance and share humanity's scientific understanding of the universe. It is relatively nearby, however it is obscured by a bright star which is in front of the galaxy. (2004, AJ, 127, 2031). DataTypeset images: 1 2 3. Our visual inspection process involves multiple steps. (2009) galaxies. Rather than aiming to elaborate the detailed science of dwarf–dwarf mergers in this study, we instead seek to provide a sample of dwarf–dwarf merging systems that can later be used for more detailed science. The fraction of early-type dwarf galaxies is only 3 out of 177. and redshift in columns 2, 3, 4, and 5, respectively. We start by selecting galaxies of magnitude Mr > −19 mag to ensure the parent sample of galaxies is predominantly composed of dwarf galaxies. In these cases, we perform aperture photometry on the GALEX image, following the same procedure we used for the optical images. By continuing to use this site you agree to our use of cookies. The Catalogue of Principal Galaxies (PGC) is an astronomical catalog published in 1989 that lists B1950 and J2000 equatorial coordinates and cross-identifications for 73,197 galaxies. The GALFA-HI Survey catalog is searched for compact, isolated HI clouds which are most similar to the expected HI characteristics of low mass dwarf galaxies. Third, we present hydrodynamic simulations of dwarf galaxies experiencing a … A dwarf galaxy is a small galaxy composed of about 1000 up to several billion stars, as compared to the Milky Way's 200–400 billion stars. SDSS catalog of stars in the Draco dwarf spheroidal galaxy Heather A. Rave1, Chongshan Zhao1, Heidi Jo Newberg1,BrianYanny2, Donald P. Schneider3,J.Brinkmann4,DonQ.Lamb5 ... the Draco dwarf spheroidal galaxy. The cataloged objects are designated with a "2MASS" and "2MASX"-prefix respectively. Previously in 2011, Reines and her colleagues used VLA to discover the first massive black hole in a dwarf starburst galaxy in 2011. There are three dwarf galaxies (Id0202-0922, Id1448-0342, Id14503534) that can be considered dwarf analogs to the Antennae system (NGC 4038/4039). Published 2018 August 22, galaxies: dwarf; galaxies: evolution; galaxies: interactions; galaxies: star formation. S15 used catalog values of SFRs from Brinchmann et al. In these cases, the shells have a generally higher surface brightness than the tidal tails. In these cases, we use images from the Legacy survey. 2014; Paudel et al. Our morphological classification reveals that there are 98 interacting dwarf galaxy systems. We found that the global properties of UGC 7639, namely, its total absolute B-band magnitude, its whole spectral energy distribution, and morphology, are well matched by an encounter with a system … For this, we use a visual inspection of the true color images from the SDSS-III (Aihara et al. Despite these detailed studies of a few intriguing examples, very little is known about whether these systems are representative of dwarf–dwarf interactions in general. We list UV and optical photometric data that we use to estimate stellar masses and star formation rates. 1984) are mainly found in less dense environments. S.-J.Y. In fact, there are only three galaxies (Id10080227, Id12474709, and Id12561630) that have g − r color indices redder than 0.5 mag and they are also morphologically akin to the early-type galaxies. In the last column we provide the names of galaxies that we found in NED. It works to advance physics research, application and education; and engages with policy makers and the public to develop awareness and understanding of physics. Some of these resemble the dwarfs with the symmetrical-shaped shell features that were found in Paudel et al. However, in the last few years the observational evidence for mergers between dwarf galaxies has been growing (e.g., Martínez-Delgado et al. Dwarf–dwarf interactions might also be distinct from giant–giant interactions for another reason. We show the distribution of their mass ratios in Figure 7. Column (7): star formation rate. This catalog will also be invaluable for future follow- up studies of the Fornax cluster dwarf galaxies. For the central part of the Leo-I group (i.e., the M96 sub-group) an initial catalog of 50 dwarf galaxy candidates was produced byFerguson & Sandage(1990). Receive alerts on all new research papers in American Astronomical Society It is not always trivial to determine if the observed tidal features were created by merging dwarf galaxies, except when the interacting pairs have not completely merged yet—like, for example, in the Antennae-like dwarf galaxies (see the lower left panel of Figure 1) or simply interacting pairs (see the lower middle panel of Figure 1). (2012) concluded that early-type dwarf galaxies (106 < M* < 109) are extremely rare in the field. 2003; Martínez-Delgado et al. Only recently, with the advent of low-surface-brightness imaging techniques, and dedicated data reduction procedures, have we been able to better detect such features (Abraham & van Dokkum 2014; Duc et al. A size and magnitude limited catalog of dwarf galaxies in the area of the Fornax cluster. Its publishing company, IOP Publishing, is a world leader in professional scientific communications. An image scale of 30'' is shown by the black horizontal bar. 2012; Rich et al. The obscured dwarf galaxy PGC 39058 Hubble image of the elliptical galaxy PGC 6240. PGC 6240 (also known as White Rose Galaxy) is a large lenticular galaxy in the constellation Hydrus. (2014), respectively. Therefore, we believe our sample will be more complete for these kinds of objects, as long as the interacting pairs show similar low-surface-brightness features as presented by our sample. Meanwhile dwarfs with ongoing star formation activity (such as blue compact dwarf galaxies (BCDs, Papaderos et al. One reason we see no clear enhancement in SFR could be because we do not attempt to control for separation distance. Star Cluster Catalogs for the LEGUS Dwarf Galaxies 1 Star Cluster Catalogs for the LEGUS Dwarf Galaxies D.O. 2017). en_US: dc.description.sponsorship: W. M. Keck Foundation: en_US DataTypeset image. This article presents a compilation and discussion of data relating to basic observational properties of all nearby (dwarf) galaxies within 3Mpc (the dwarf satellite systems of the Milky Way and M31 galaxies, the quasi-isolated dwarfs in the outer regions of the Local Group, and the isolated dwarf galaxies found in the surrounding of the Local Group out to the next nearest galaxy groups). 2009). Also, if we see a loop of a stellar stream around the galaxies, we identify this with an "L," e.g., Id09530702. were very helpful for visual confirmation of the presence of low-surface-brightness features around dwarf galaxies. Part of the reason for this could perhaps be that the tidal features that are produced are not as spectacular as those in merging giant galaxies, due to the relatively weak tidal forces acting upon them. Given the fairly good number statistics of our sample, we also attempt to understand their typical environments. The g − r color distribution shown in the right panel of Figure 5 reveals that this sample is overwhelmingly dominated by star-forming galaxies with similar colors to BCDs (Meyer et al. The comparison data are from Leroy et al. This means we are able to study merging dwarfs over a far greater range of merging stages, even when one dwarf has fully merged with another and the only indication of the event might be the remaining tidal features. [2] 40,932 coordinates (56%) have standard deviations smaller than 10″. (2009; see the gray plots), who studied the FUV-derived SFRs of local-volume (<11 Mpc), star-forming galaxies. BibTeX The evolution of dwarf galaxies throughout the merging process has yet to be explored in detail. The catalog contains SDSS photometry for 5634 individual objects, and also the photometry from matches to any of the … 2013; Paudel & Ree 2014). It has a worldwide membership of around 50 000 comprising physicists from all sectors, as well as those with an interest in physics. We find that only 41 dwarf galaxy merging systems have giant neighbors. 2016). We provide basic properties, such as sky-position, redshift, stellar mass, and SFR.

The Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series, https://www.sdss.org/collaboration/#acknowledgements, A Case Study for a Tidal Interaction between Dwarf Galaxies in UGC 6741, The Next Generation Virgo Cluster Survey. Next we list FUV-band and NUV-band magnitudes in columns 7 and 8, respectively. The presence of such structures, which is also predicted by numerical simulations, is now frequently observed in deep imaging surveys (Conselice & Gallagher 1999; Struck 1999; van Dokkum 2005; Smith et al. In Paudel et al. Bottom: examples of dwarfs that we classify as having interacted with another dwarf, categorized into three different types of tidal features (i.e., from left to right; interacting, tidal tail, and shell features). But we are keen to avoid including dwarfs that are interacting with a giant galaxy in this catalog. A catalog of merging dwarf galaxies in the local universe Sanjaya Paudel, Rory Smith, Suk Jin Yoo, Paula Calderón-Castillo, Pierre-Alain Duc We present the largest publicly available catalog of interacting dwarf galaxies. 2009). As the right panel of Figure 7 indicates, the relative line-of-sight velocity between the interacting dwarf pairs is relatively low, and only in two cases is it higher than 100 km s−1. The catalog is a renewed and expanded version of the Catalog of Neighboring Galaxies by Karachentsev et al. 2012). In this Local Volume (LV) sample, 108 dwarf galaxies still remain … (2009). For the rest of the physical parameters that we present in this work, values are given for the total system (e.g., magnitudes, g − r colors, stellar masses, and star formation rates (SFRs)). Thus, it is probable that many of these are not bound to their hosts, and in many cases our 700 kpc search radius and ±700 km s−1 velocity range search criteria are not robust enough to characterize whether our merging dwarfs are hosted by their nearest giant host. The total number of galaxies in this redshift range is ≈20,000. The classifications of morphological features are given in column 9. In contrast, we select interacting dwarf galaxies according to their observed tidal features, and it is not necessary to have a radial velocity for both interacting members. It includes 177 nearby merging dwarf galaxies of stellar mass M 10 M $_ {\sun}$ and redshifts z 0.02. Figure 7. So far, the study of interacting dwarf galaxies has largely been done on an individual basis, and lacks a sufficiently large catalog to give statistics on the properties of interacting dwarf galaxies, and their role in the evolution of low-mass galaxies. Both observations and numerical simulations concur that massive elliptical galaxies were likely formed predominantly by the mergers of disk galaxies (Springel et al. We show the redshift distribution of our catalog of dwarf galaxies in Figure 3. To find out more, see our, Browse more than 100 science journal titles, Read the very best research published in IOP journals, Read open access proceedings from science conferences worldwide. That may lead to an artificial reduction in the number of merging dwarf systems near giant galaxies. dSph galaxies are small (300 pc metallicity and ages greater than a few gigayears. In contrast, in this work we first aim to present a large catalog of merging dwarf systems, which will be helpful for a detailed study of various properties of interacting/merging dwarf galaxies in the future. Figure 6. Representative examples of dwarf galaxies with tidal features. Export citation and abstract © 2018. We list the positions (R.A. and decl.) The final sample consists of 177 systems with a limit in the combined stellar mass of the system of <1010 M⊙. We note that the list is neither complete nor fully comprehensive, but we hope it provides a useful starting point for readers with an interest in a specific object or merging system. Another part of the difference could emerge from the way we derived SFR. Because they are selected from visual inspection of low-surface-brightness features, this depends on the depth of the imaging survey, and on how well defined the tidal features are. For our sample of merging dwarf galaxies, we also collected neutral hydrogen (H i) masses from the CDS server.9 Since these data are assembled from various sources in the literature, note the heterogeneity of the results. (2015) reported a number of star-forming regions in the bridge connecting the two interacting galaxies, whereas such star formation is completely absent in Arp 104 (Gallagher & Parker 2010). Shell (Sh): the presence of shell features can be seen e.g., Id0155-0011. 2017). Column (9): satellite or not—1 for yes and 0 for no. This is a similar criterion to what we previously used to search for isolated early-type dwarf galaxies (Paudel et al. The distances to the galaxies are taken from NED. Column (8): H i mass. 2005; Naab et al. For example, dwarf galaxies with tidal features whose origins are unclear and are located near a giant (M* > 1010) host galaxy have been selectively removed.
