Based on archival Chandra data, we have carried out an X-ray survey of 69, or nearly half the known population of, Milky Way globular clusters (GCs), focusing on weak X-ray sources, mainly cataclysmic variables (CVs) and coronally active binaries (ABs).

Using the cumulative X-ray luminosity per unit stellar mass (i.e., X-ray emissivity) as a proxy of the source abundance, we demonstrate a.

Halo masses are determined for each galaxy cluster based on X-ray temperature measurements, and range between log 10(M /M) = 13 and Our directly. SARAZIN’S PAPER is “a comprehensive survey of the hot gas pervading clusters of galaxies, a strong source of cosmic x-rays” (New Scientist 22 April74).

Both highly-regarded and exhaustive, Sarazin demonstrates that there is much independent X-ray evidence that cooling flows exist. X-rays were detected from a cluster of galaxies, M87 in the Virgo Cluster, in Comparing X-ray and optical images of clusters show that there is more matter in the gas between the galaxies then in the galaxies themselves.

They typically contain s to s of galaxies and have sizes on the orders of 10 million light years. Scanning the sky for X-ray sources, ESA's XMM-Newton X-ray observatory has been busy with the XXL Survey, its largest observational programme to date. The second batch of data from the survey has just been released, including information on galaxy clusters, which trace the large-scale structure of the Universe and its evolution through time, and on 26 active galactic nuclei.

The central density of the gas is strongly correlated with the X-ray surface brightness. The X-ray surface brightness S(sigma) of many clusters is well.

The results of an x-ray survey indicate that the contribution of groups to the mass density of the universe is likely to be larger than h50−2. Many of the very poor groups have large x-ray halos and are filled with small galaxies whose velocity dispersion is a good match to the x-ray temperatures.

The pressure in the hot gas is an accurate probe of the amount of dark matter in clusters of galaxies. By using this information, and X-ray surveys to count the number of large clusters in the universe, astronomers can test the various theories for the content and evolution of the universe.

Clusters and superclusters of galaxies are the largest objects in the Universe. They have been the subject of intense observational studies at a variety of wavelengths, from radio to X-ray which has provoked much theoretical debate and advanced our understanding of the recent evolution of the large-scale structure of the Universe.

The current status of the subject is reviewed in this volume. The HOD of BOSS galaxies in X-ray clusters 3 bers of clusters: the largest recent studies are limited to ’50 clusters, e.g. Smith et al. ; Applegate et al. There-fore, for this study, we have used cluster-averaged X-ray tem-peratures, T X, combined with an externally calibrated T X{M relation.

(The scatter on the T X{M is predicted. The results of an x-ray survey indicate that the contribution of groups to the mass density of the universe is likely to be larger than h 50 −2.

Many of the very poor groups have large x-ray halos and are filled with small galaxies whose velocity dispersion is a good match to the x-ray. X-ray observations of groups and clusters of galaxies have matured rapidly in the last 6 years with the advent of good quality imaging with Rosat and moderate quality spectra with ASCA, the Japanese-U.S.

x-ray spectroscopy mission launched in February,   Chandra X-ray observations of early-type galaxies have shown that the X-ray binaries are low mass X-ray binaries, and that a high fraction are locate in globular clusters.

An example is Centaurus A (at right), which also as a radio AGN with jets, a merging spiral galaxy, radio lobes with both thermal and nonthermal shocks, and hot interstellar gas.

By conducting an extensive follow-up survey of an all-sky X-ray point source catalog to look for galaxy overdensities, we will obtain a sample of such galaxy clusters.

The primary question the sample will answer is whether there are other extreme-BCG clusters, similar to the Phoenix cluster, in our universe. CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): We have embarked on a survey of ROSAT PSPC archival data with the aim of detecting all significant surface brightness enhancements due to sources in the innermost R ≤ 15 arcmin of the PSPC field of view in the energy band − keV.

This project is part of the Wide Angle ROSAT Pointed Survey (WARPS) and is. Using ∼ X-ray selected clusters in the Dark Energy Survey Science Verification data, we constrain the luminosity function (LF) of cluster red-sequence galaxies as a function of redshift.

This is the first homogeneous optical/X-ray sample large enough to constrain the evolution of the LF simultaneously in redshift ( Considerable progress has been made over the past decade in the study of the evolutionary trends of the population of galaxy clusters in the Universe.

In this review we focus on observations in the X-ray band. X-ray surveys with the satellite, supplemented by follow-up studies with and, have allowed an assessment of the evolution of the space density of clusters out to ≈ 1 and the evolution.

It is a report on the spectroscopic observations of three fields (called XLSSC-d,e and f) in the survey, chosen based on high density of clusters that emit light in the X-ray regime (i.e.

luminosity above 10 42 erg s-1). The authors used the m William Herschel Telescope to take spectra for the objects discovered by XXL. The cluster, named HSC J (XLSSC ), lies four billion light-years from Earth and was independently discovered by both ESA's space-based XMM-Newton X-ray.

Clusters of galaxies as radio and X-ray sources. Some clusters of galaxies contain a widespread intergalactic cloud of hot gas that can be detected as a diffuse radio source or as a large-scale source of X-rays.

The gaseous cloud has a low density but a very high temperature, having been heated by the motion of the cluster’s galaxies through. X-Ray Analysis of Active Galactic Nuclei in Clusters from the Dark Energy Survey Erica Bufanda1 1.
