NED Abstract

Copyright by Royal Astronomical Society. 2003MNRAS.344..527K Structure and star formation in disc galaxies - I. Sample selection and near-infrared imaging Knapen, J. H.; de Jong, R. S.; Stedman, S.; Bramich, D. M. Abstract. We present near-infrared imaging of a sample of 57 relatively large, northern spiral galaxies with low inclination. After describing the selection criteria and some of the basic properties of the sample, we give a detailed description of the data collection and reduction procedures. The K_s_{lambda}= 2.2- microns images cover most of the disc for all galaxies, with a field of view of at least 4.2 arcmin. The spatial resolution is better than 1 arcsec for most images. We fit bulge and exponential disc components to radial profiles of the light distribution. We then derive the basic parameters of these components, and the bulge/disc ratio, and explore correlations of these parameters with several galaxy parameters. ########################################################################### 2003MNRAS.346..333K Erratum: Structure and star formation in disc galaxies - I. Sample selection and near-infrared imaging Knapen, J. H.; de Jong, R. S.; Stedman, S.; Bramich, D. M. The paper 'Structure and star formation in disc galaxies - I. Sample selection and near-infrared imaging' was published in Mon. Not. R, Astron. Soc. 344, 527-543 (2003). A graphics problem compromised the quality of Fig. 1, which is reproduced correctly in this Erratum. ###########################################################################
