Abstract

We examine the population statistics for two samples of galaxies in the direction of the Perseus supercluster. One sample, with N = 258 galaxies having MB ≤ -19.52 + 5 log(h) and vh ≤ 8000 km s-1, is complete for those galaxies within the boundaries of our survey region that have apparent magnitudes mp ≤ 15.0 in the Zwicky catalog. A more restrictive sample with N = 177 galaxies having MB ≤ -20.00 + 5 log(h) (with the same redshift range) is complete in both luminosity and volume. We derive the statistics for the relative incidence of galaxies in the following spectroscopic classes: (1) absorption line only, (2) collisionally-excited emission lines only, (3) nuclear H II region, (4) starburst, (5) LINER, and (6) Seyfert 1.8–2.
