Abstract

The terms ‘dwarf’ and ‘low surface brightness’ are commonly used to mean a variety of different things, and are sometimes used interchangeably. It is thus necessary to explicitly quantify the definitions which are adopted. Here I shall limit the discussion to field galaxies which are [exponential] disks characterized by a scale size h and central surface brightness μ0.
