Online material

In our work about clusters of galaxies, we obtained 39,668 clusters (the original catalog contains 39,716 entries,

48 repeated clusters have been removed in the updated catalog, 296 BCG positions have been corrected).

We also obtained 685 X-ray candidates of clusters (the original catalog contains 790 candidates, some of them

are known X-ray clusters. The updated catalog contains 912 entries, including 227 known X-ray clusters).

Here, I give the cluster catalog identified from the SDSS DR6, and the X-ray candidates of clusters in the catalog.

See reference: Wen, Han & Liu 2009, ApJS, 183, 197.

In our work about galaxy mergers, we obtained 1209 galaxy pairs.

Here, I provide the catalog of pairs. See reference: Wen, Liu & Han 2009, ApJ, 692, 511.


Using deep field data, we identify 631 clusters from the CFHT Wide, 202 clusters from the CFHT Deep, 187

clusters form the COSMOS and 737 clusters from the SWIRE fields. Here, we provide the table for these high

redshift clusters. See reference: Wen & Han 2011, ApJ, 734, 68.
