1998A&AS..129..455D A catalogue of dwarf galaxy candidates around interacting galaxies H.J. Deeg, C. Munoz-Tunon, G. Tenorio-Tagle, E. Telles, J.M. Vilchez, J.M. Rodriguez-Espinosa, P.A. Duc, and I.F. Mirabel Received May 30; accepted October 7,1997 Abstract. We present results from the imaging of a sample of 12 interacting galaxies for which we have cataloged all potential dwarf systems in the vicinity of these strongly interacting galaxies. After careful cleaning of the images and applying a restrictive S/N criterion we have identified, measured and cataloged all possible extended objects in each field. On the frames, covering 11.4 x 10.5 arcmins, typically 100-200 non-stellar faint, extended objects were found. The vast majority (> 98%) of these objects had not been previously identified. The number of expected objects in the magnitude range R = 18 - 19.5 exceeds the expected count of background galaxies. This supports the possibility that a density enhancement of extended objects around some interacting galaxies results from the addition of a locally formed dwarf galaxy population. Key words: galaxies: interactions - galaxies: statistics -galaxies: formation
