NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 1997MNRAS.289..263D The APM Galaxy Survey - v. Catalogues of galaxy clusters G. B. Dalton, S. J. Maddox, W. J. Sutherland and G. Efstathiou Accepted 1997 February 5. Received 1997 January 30; in original form 1996 July 23 ABSTRACT We describe the construction of catalogues of galaxy clusters from the APM Galaxy survey using an automated algorithm based on Abell-like selection criteria. We investigate the effects of varying several parameters in our selection algorithm, including the magnitude range and radius from the cluster centre used to estimate the cluster richnesses. We quantify the accuracy of the photometric distance estimates by comparing them with measured redshifts, and we investigate the stability and completeness of the resulting catalogues. We find that the angular correlation functions for different cluster catalogues are in good agreement with one another, and are also consistent with the observed amplitude of the spatial correlation function of rich clusters. Key words: catalogues - surveys - galaxies: clusters: general - large- scale structure of Universe.
