An impact of nearby attractors on the collective peculiar motion of galaxies

We study the impact of individual attractors on the multipole model of the collective motion of galaxies. Equations obtained provide a theoretical possibility to estimate masses and locations of attractors together with the parameters of the multipole model. Unfortunately, this is not possible on the state-of-the-art level of estimation of galaxy’ peculiar velocities.
