2. The visual double stars in the Hipparcos catalogue

We give here the only complete list of all known double and multiple systems (18644) having at least one component identified in the Hipparcos final catalogue in July 1997, including the 2994 systems newly discovered by the satellite as well as the 155 new astrometric orbital pairs of the DMSA/O also discovered by the satellite (Dommanget, 2000). It may be considered as a subset of the CCDM as it existed in 1998 and of which a second edition, containing more than 45000 systems, is being prepared for publication. Consequently, the format of this list is that of the CCDM for which all information may be found in the introduction to its 1994 published version (mentioned above) as well as at the CDS, ref. I-211 2. Some additional information should be considered to best interpret the present file. This information is given in Table 1. One sample of the file is given hereafter for illustration (Table 2). The complete file may be found at the CDS at Strasbourg, ref. I-260 3, and other data centers.
