Total galaxy magnitudes and effective radii from Petrosian magnitudes and radii

Graham, Alister; Driver, Simon; Petrosian, Vahe; Conselice, Christopher J; Bershady, Matthew; Crawford, Steven M; Goto, Tomotsugu

Description

Petrosian magnitudes were designed to help with the difficult task of determining a galaxy's total light. Although these magnitudes [taken here as the flux within 2RP, with the inverted Petrosian index 1/η(RP) = 0.2] can represent most of an object's flu
