1988ApJ...327L..51B LINE WIDTH-LUMINOSITY CORRELATION FOR STARBURST GALAXIES CHRIS L. BRUNGARDT Department of Astronomy, The Pennsylvania State University Received 1987 June 15; accepted 1988 January 13 ABSTRACT High-resolution spectroscopy and R-band CCD imagery are used to study the kinematics of galaxies with starburst nuclei. Good correlations are found between nuclear H{alpha} emission line width and luminosity of the nucleus, and line width and host galaxy luminosity. The fundamental correlation appears to be with the nucleus, but the slope is shallower than the Tully-Fisher relation. This makes it a potentially more sensitive luminosity indicator. Subject headings: galaxies: internal motions - galaxies: nuclei - galaxies: photometry
