Abstract

The hypothesis that high far-infrared luminosities in noninteracting galaxies are dependent on material fed into their nuclei or into circumnuclear rings along bars can be tested by near-infrared imaging. Except in extreme starbursts, the near-infrared emission arises from the stars that dominate the mass of the stellar populations; moreover, the effects of interstellar extinction are greatly reduced at these wavelengths compared with
