Structure and Evolution of Galaxies


A photometric study inUBV of about 1000 bright stars outside and inside associations in S5 spiral arm is presented briefly. Characteristics of the associations (such as absorption, age and brightest stars are compared with the same characteristics of the associations in S4 spiral arm of M31, as well as in M33) are discussed.
