Census of Blue Compact Dwarf Galaxies from SDSS DR7

EonChang Sung (Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute)

We present a study of the local and global environments of star-burst activities for a sample of ~10,000 blue compact dwarf galaxies (BCDs) from SDSS DR7. We classified the sample by a plausible classification scheme based on the local environments of BCDs which was introduced by Sung et al. (2002). We found that more than 60% of nearby BCDs (z
