Barred spirals and dwarf galaxies in the virgo cluster

  • A. T. Kalloghlian


Using the extensive catalog of Binggelli, Sandage, and Tammann it is shown that dwarf galaxies in the Virgo cluster are more tightly connected with barred rather than with normal spirals. The number of dwarfs is higher, the greater the number of barreds in the given field. There is no preferential direction in the distribution of dwarfs around barred galaxies.
