[2.03] Compact Groups of Galaxies in the Las Campanas Redshift Survey

S.S. Allam (NRIAG), D.L. Tucker (Fermilab)

Compact groups of galaxies -- relatively poor groups of galaxies in which the typical separations between members is of the order of a galaxy diameter -- offer an exceptional laboratory for the study of dense galaxian environments. Here, we present first results from a new catalogue of compact groups, based upon the Las Campanas Redshift Survey, which contains 78 compact groups having 3 or more members.
