Results from the principal component analysis. Left: position of the observed galaxies in the PC base  [ PC1,PC2,PC3 ] . Different symbols refer to starbursts (stars), Seyferts (triangles) and LIRGs (squares). Galaxies with both AGN and LIRG properties are plotted as triangles. Numbers indicate different galaxies, as explained in Table 1. Values for the PAH equivalent widths are taken from Spoon et al. (2007). Infrared fluxes were obtained from the NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database. Right: projection of the PC components onto the original base of observables. We consider only the first three PCs, since they account for 90% of the variance and thus contain most of the information in the dataset.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.

Initial download of the metrics may take a while.
