Abstract: Radio continuum flux densities, far infrared flux densities, far infrared colors, and ultraviolet and optical spectra indicate that high rates of star formation are occurring in some SO galaxies, especially barred galaxies. Radio continuum and infrared images show that the star forming region is typically concentrated within the central few kpc of the galaxy. The high incidence of central star formation in barred galaxies suggests that bar-driven inflow of gas is fueling the star-forming regions in these galaxies.
