Clusters of galaxies are the largest and most massive collapsed systems in the Universe. In addition to containing thousands of galaxies, these systems contain large amounts of hot, X-ray-emitting gas and dark matter. This volume contains a series of review papers on this exciting and important astronomical topic by international leaders in the field. The work is appropriate as an introduction for physics and astronomy graduate students as well as a reference source for professionals.

Book Description:

Clusters of galaxies are the largest and most massive collapsed systems in the Universe. In addition to containing thousands of galaxies, these systems contain large amounts of hot, X-ray emitting gas and dark matter. This volume contains a series of review papers on this exciting and important astronomical topic by the world's leaders in this field. The volume is appropriate both as an introduction to this topic for physics and astronomy graduate students and as a reference source for professionals doing astronomical research.

About the Author:

John S. Mulchaey's research has focused on groups of galaxies. In 1993, he used the ROSAT telescope to show that diffuse X-ray emission is a common feature of many galaxy groups providing some of the strongest evidence to date that such systems are dominated by dark matter. More recently he has played an important role in the discovery and study of 'fossil groups', massive systems that contain very few galaxies. Alan Dressler has made many fundamental contributions to the study of large scale structure in the universe over the last 30 years, including the quntification of the so-called morphology-density relation in clusters. He also played a leading role in the discovery of the Great Attractor and massive black holes in nearby galaxies. More recently, he participated in the MORPHS project, using Hubble Space Telescope images to show that bursts of star formation were much more common in galaxies 5 billion years ago than they are today. Augustus Oemler has devoted much of his research career to understanding how galaxies have evolved to their present form. In collaboration with H. Butcher, he showed that clusters at intermediate red-shifts contain a large excess of blue galaxies (now known as the Butcher-Oemler effect). As a member of the MORPHS team, Oemler has more recently been using HST to study the morphologies of galaxies in moderate red-shift clusters. He recently finished a seven year term as director of Carnegie Observatories.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2005. Hardback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Clusters of galaxies are the largest and most massive collapsed systems in the Universe, and as such they are valuable probes of cosmological structure and galaxy evolution. The advent of extensive galaxy surveys, large ground-based facilities, space-based missions such as HST, Chandra and XMM-Newton and detailed numerical simulations makes a particularly exciting time to be involved in this field. The review papers in this volume span a comprehensive range of research in this area, including theoretical expectations for the growth of structure, survey techniques to identify clusters, metal production and the intracluster medium, galaxy evolution in the cluster environment and group-cluster connections. With contributions from leading authorities in the field, this volume is appropriate both as an introduction to this topic for physics and astronomy graduate students, and as a reference source for professional research astronomers.
