Physical Coupling of Kazarian Galaxies with Surrounding Galaxies
Results from a statistical study of Kazarian galaxies and the objectssurrounding them are presented. It is shown that: (1) the sample ofKazarian galaxies up to 16m.0 is complete. (2) Roughly 35.7% of theKazarian galaxies are members of clusters, 14.0% of groups, and 13.6% ofbinary systems, while 36.7% are single galaxies. (3) Of the 580 Kazariangalaxies, roughly 61.2% are infrared, 8.8% radio, and 2.8% x-raysources. (4) The relative numbers of Kazarian galaxies for completesamples of I, R, and X in the different groups are systematically higherthan the corresponding numbers for samples of all Kazarian galaxies.

Arcsecond Positions of UGC Galaxies
We present accurate B1950 and J2000 positions for all confirmed galaxiesin the Uppsala General Catalog (UGC). The positions were measuredvisually from Digitized Sky Survey images with rms uncertaintiesσ<=[(1.2")2+(θ/100)2]1/2,where θ is the major-axis diameter. We compared each galaxymeasured with the original UGC description to ensure high reliability.The full position list is available in the electronic version only.

Morphological classification of new galaxies with a UV excess
The results of a morphological classification of 580 galaxies with a UVexcess, included in the lists in [M. A. Kazarian, Astrofizika,15, 5(1979); ibid.,15, 193 (1979); M. A. Kazarian and É. S. Kazarian,ibid.,16, 17 (1980); ibid.,18, 512 (1982); ibid.,19, 213 (1983)], arepresented. For this we have developed a set of symbols, using the typesE, S, and Ir introduced by Hubble, as well as symbols introduced byother authors and us. This set enabled us to make the morphologicalclassification. Direct photographs obtained on the 2.6-m and 6-mtelescopes were used to classify 141 of the galaxies (over 24%), whilePalomar Atlas charts were used for the remaining 439 galaxies. Thesegalaxies were divided into two groups based on classificationconditions, and data on each group are given in Tables 1 and 2,respectively. The results for each group, given in Table 3, show thatwith the transition from early types, such as C and E, to later types,such as S and Ir, the relative number of galaxies going into one group(Table 1), in which the classification was based on direct photographs,increases in comparison with the number going into the other group(Table 2).

Neutral hydrogen observations of galaxies in superclusters
Neutral hydrogen observations of spiral galaxies in the Uppsala GeneralCatalog were made with the 91 m telescope in Green Bank. Results of theH I observations are presented for 309 objects north of declination +38deg in the right ascension range between 10 h and 22 h and for a sampleof 46 objects just south of the equator in the region around R.A.between 0 h and 3 h. Many of these objects are outlying members ofsuperclusters and may be useful in the study of deviations from Hubbleflow on supercluster scales. Velocity widths as measured by fivedifferent algorithms are presented along with a profile quality index.

An intermediate-sensitivity survey at high Galactic latitude with HEAO A-1
A 314 square degree region of sky at high galactic latitude was mappedin 0.5-20 keV X-rays using summed data from the HEAO A-1 experiment. 21sources are detected above a 5 sigma threshold corresponding to alimiting flux of about 0.2 UFU. This limit is at a decade intermediateto those achieved in the full-sky surveys, Uhuru, Ariel 5, and the HEAOA-2 experiment, and to those achieved in the Einstein partial-skysurveys. The HEAO A-1 detectors also complement these other instrumentsin terms of spectral response characteristics. A table of sourceintensities and positional error boxes for the 21 source detections ispresented. A graphical representation of the positional error boxes isalso presented. Identifications for 14 sources are proposed. Anumber-flux curve representing all high galactic latitude X-ray sourcesdetected with HEAO A-1 has been constructed. The number-flux curveappears to be consistent with d log N/d log S = -1.5.

Morphological investigation of galaxies with ultraviolet excess
Large-scale photographs of 43 galaxies with UV excess from the lists ofKazarian (1979) and Kazarian and Kazarian (1980), obtained in 25-minexposures at 20 arcsec/mm with the 2.6-m reflector at BiurakanAstrophysical Observatory during summer, 1980, are presented andcharacterized in terms of morphology. The majority of the galaxies arefound to have well defined nuclear regions or condensations; about 60percent are classified as spirals, 25 percent as ellipticals, and 15percent as compact. Isodensity charts of eight galaxies are included.
