To date, the project has resulted in several studies which describe the surveys (Haynes et al. 1986, 1991), the FIR/radio correlation (Xu et al. 1992), thermal and non-thermal components (Klein et al. 1989, 1991), magnetic field in the MCs (Klein et al. 1993), the radio source catalogues at six frequencies (Papers IV, IVa and V), the discrete source radio/X-ray correlation (Filipovic et al. 1998a, hereafter Paper VI) and the discrete source radio/IR correlation (Filipovic et al. 1998b, hereafter Paper VIII).
The search for discrete radio sources in the MCs has resulted in catalogues
at 1.40 (1.42 GHz for the SMC), 2.45, 4.75 and 8.55 GHz at resolutions of
15.2 (13.8), 8.85, 4.8 and 2.7 (HPBW), respectively (for details see
Table 3 and Table 4). In addition to these specific
surveys, a part of the Parkes-MIT- NRAO (PMN) southern all-sky survey at
4.85 GHz by Wright et al. (1994) covered the field of the MCs.
The catalogues of the LMC radio sources at these five frequencies were published in Paper IV. An additional survey and catalogue of the LMC sources at 2.30 GHz appears in Paper IVa. The SMC sources are catalogued in Paper V.
Tables 3 and 4 list the survey material of the LMC and the SMC that is used in this study of discrete sources in the MCs. The first column in Tables 3 and 4 shows the observing frequency; the second shows the resolution; the third shows the size of the observed field; the fourth gives an estimate of the noise in the maps and the fifth gives the number of sources detected at the particular frequency.
