Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies
by Halton C. Arp
Publisher: California Institute of Technology 1966
Number of pages: 190
The primary goal of the catalog was to present photographs of examples of the different kinds of peculiar structures found among nearby galaxies. Arp realized that the reason why galaxies formed into spiral or elliptical shapes was not well understood. He perceived peculiar galaxies as small "experiments" that astronomers could use to understand the physical processes that distort spiral or elliptical galaxies.

I review the subject of the cosmological evolution of galaxies, including different aspects of growth in disk galaxies, by focussing on the angular momentum problem, mergers, and their by-products. I discuss the alternative to merger-driven growth.

Clusters of galaxies are the most recently assembled, massive, bound structures in the Universe. Given their masses, clusters strongly deform space-time in their vicinity. Clusters act as the most powerful gravitational lenses in the Universe.

Galaxy halos provide important clues to the origin and evolution of galaxies. This volume brings together the latest simulations and deep observations of galaxy halos, focusing on the baryonic (star and gas) component of halos.

This is a review of the properties of galaxy systems as determined from optical and infrared measurements. Covered topics are: clusters identification, global cluster properties and their scaling relations, cluster internal structure, etc.
