Galaxy groups in the 2dFGRS: The group-finding algorithm and the 2PIGG catalogue

Abstract:

The construction of a catalogue of galaxy groups from the Two-degree Field Galaxy Red-shift Survey (2dFGRS) is described. Groups are identified by means of a friends-of-friends percolation algorithm which has been thoroughly tested on mock versions of the 2dFGRS generated from cosmological N-body simulations. The tests suggest that the algorithm groups all galaxies that it should be grouping, with an additional 40 per cent of interlopers. About 55 per cent of the ∼190 000 galaxies considered ...
