HYPERLEDA. II. The homogenized HI data
After a compilation of HI data from 611 references and new observationsmade in Nançay, we produce a catalog of homogenized HI data for16781 galaxies. The homogenization is made using the EPIDEMIC methodfrom which all data are progressively converted into the adoptedstandard. The result is a catalog giving: 1) the logarithm of twice themaximum rotation velocity, log 2V_Msin i, converted to thesystem of Mathewson et al. (\cite{Mathewson1996}). This quantity isgiven without correction for inclination; 2) the HI magnitude,m21, (area of the 21-cm line width expressed in magnitude)converted to the flux system of Theureau et al. (\cite{Theureau1998});3) the HI velocity, V_HI, expressed with the optical definition (i.e.,using wavelengths instead frequencies). The typical uncertainties are:0.04 for log 2V_Msin i, 0.25 mag for m21 and 9 kms-1 for V_HI.Full Tables \ref{epidemicw}, \ref{epidemicw2}, \ref{epidemicf},\ref{epidemicf2} and Fig. \ref{profiles} are available in electronicform at http://www.edpsciences.org.

Nearby Optical Galaxies: Selection of the Sample and Identification of Groups
In this paper we describe the Nearby Optical Galaxy (NOG) sample, whichis a complete, distance-limited (cz<=6000 km s-1) andmagnitude-limited (B<=14) sample of ~7000 optical galaxies. Thesample covers 2/3 (8.27 sr) of the sky (|b|>20deg) andappears to have a good completeness in redshift (97%). We select thesample on the basis of homogenized corrected total blue magnitudes inorder to minimize systematic effects in galaxy sampling. We identify thegroups in this sample by means of both the hierarchical and thepercolation ``friends-of-friends'' methods. The resulting catalogs ofloose groups appear to be similar and are among the largest catalogs ofgroups currently available. Most of the NOG galaxies (~60%) are found tobe members of galaxy pairs (~580 pairs for a total of ~15% of objects)or groups with at least three members (~500 groups for a total of ~45%of objects). About 40% of galaxies are left ungrouped (field galaxies).We illustrate the main features of the NOG galaxy distribution. Comparedto previous optical and IRAS galaxy samples, the NOG provides a densersampling of the galaxy distribution in the nearby universe. Given itslarge sky coverage, the identification of groups, and its high-densitysampling, the NOG is suited to the analysis of the galaxy density fieldof the nearby universe, especially on small scales.

Towards the Frequency and Evolutionary Timescale of Protoplanetary Disks
In this poster we will present preliminary results from our ongoingnear-infrared survey of very young clusters, the majority of them stillembedded in their parental molecular cloud. We will draw generalconclusions on issues of the frequency and timescales for the initialstages of planet formation.

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.

An image database. II. Catalogue between δ=-30deg and δ=70deg.
A preliminary list of 68.040 galaxies was built from extraction of35.841 digitized images of the Palomar Sky Survey (Paper I). For eachgalaxy, the basic parameters are obtained: coordinates, diameter, axisratio, total magnitude, position angle. On this preliminary list, weapply severe selection rules to get a catalog of 28.000 galaxies, wellidentified and well documented. For each parameter, a comparison is madewith standard measurements. The accuracy of the raw photometricparameters is quite good despite of the simplicity of the method.Without any local correction, the standard error on the total magnitudeis about 0.5 magnitude up to a total magnitude of B_T_=17. Significantsecondary effects are detected concerning the magnitudes: distance toplate center effect and air-mass effect.

The rate of supernovae. I - The data base, the recipe and the uncertainties
Because the determination of SN rates is vulnerable to the small numberstatistics of homogeneous samples, the data bases of two independent SNsearches were merged in order to build up the largest data base everused for SN rate determinations. Using a software specially developedfor the analysis of these materials, the individual control times wereestimated for each galaxy and in turn the SN rates for samples ofgalaxies extracted from different catalogs were estimated. Theuncertainties in the input parameters were quantitatively estimated byseveral tests. It is found that the assumption of the limiting discoverymagnitude is crucial. Contrary to previous belief, it is shown that thedispersion of the absolute SN magnitude at maximum is not particularlyimportant for the SN rates determined from the samples, whereasuncertainties about the shape of the light curve are more serious. Therate of SNe was computed for four galaxy samples extracted fromdifferent catalogs. It is shown that the SNe rate reflects thedifferences among the galaxy parameters reported by different catalogs.

Supernova studies. I - A catalogue of magnitude observations of supernovae I
A catalog of photometric observations (UBV or pg) of 81 supernovae oftype I is presented. Only supernovae with multiple data were included.

Type IA supernovae in elliptical and spiral galaxies - Possible differences in photometric homogeneity
It is shown that beta, the initial postmaximum rate of SN brightnessdecline (in the B band) defined by Pskovskii (1977), may have a smallerdispersion among SNe Ia in elliptical galaxies than in all other typesof galaxies. Contamination of the sample by SNe Ib is unlikely to be theprimary cause of this difference. Although the number of objects is verysmall, it is also possible that the velocity of SN Ia ejecta inelliptical galaxies is lower than in spiral galaxies. If correct, theseobservations provide the first direct evidence for physical differencesamong SNe Ia in different environments; reddening variations due to gasand dust are unlikely to produce most of the observed dispersion in betaamong spirals. One obvious possibility is that the SNe Ia in spiralgalaxies come from intermediate-mass stars, and that differences in themetallicities, accretion rates, or other properties account for theobservations. A more extreme, improbable explanation is that not all SNeIa in spiral galaxies result from carbon deflagrations of carbon-oxygenwhite dwarfs.

The Asiago Supernova Catalogue
A Catalogue of Supernovae (SNe) is presented which tabulates the maindata relative to all extragalactic SNe discovered up to 1988 December31, and to their parent galaxies. In total 661 SNe are listed of which267 are classified. For an easier consultation, two lists are givenwhere the SNe are ordered chronologically and by Right Ascension,respectively. The overall distribution of classified supernovae over themorphological types of their parent galaxies is also presented in asummary table.

A Checklist of Supernovae in the NGC and IC Galaxies Through 1985
This Checklist of Supernovae in the NGC and IC Galaxies Through 1985 ispresented to assist those interested in undertaking a visual orphotographic search for extragalactic supernovae. Some galaxies appearto have had more than one or two supernovae, and these should bemonitored closely for any new outbursts.

A revised supernova catalogue
Essential data for 568 supernovae, discovered since 1885 up to 1983, andtheir parent galaxies are presented. This catalogue updates and revisesprevious listings, and some of its information is summarized in tabularand graphical form and briefly discussed. An appendix listing the mainreferences to observations of supernovae outside the optical range isprovided.
