A sample of galaxy clusters to study the fundamental plane: Redshift measurements

We present the results of spectroscopic observations of galaxies in a sample of nearby clusters. We measured galaxy redshifts and estimated cluster velocity dispersions. These observations were carried out at the Observatoire de Haute Provence as part of a program aiming at a more detailed study of the Cluster Fundamental Plane.

Galaxy redshifts in 3 medium–distant clusters

We present results from spectroscopic observations of 3 rich and moderately distant galaxy clusters at the 3.6 m ESO telescope at La Silla. We measured 54 galaxy redshifts in 3 fields centered on the clusters A 3663 and A 3889, which are rich and distant ACO clusters, and on a new cluster, Cl , identified on a deep plate. We present estimates of their velocity dispersion and...

The zCOSMOS redshift survey: evolution of the light in bulges and discs since z ~ 0.8

We studied the chronology of galactic bulge and disc formation by analysing the relative contributions of these components to the B-band rest-frame luminosity density at different epochs. We present the first estimate of the evolution of the fraction of rest-frame B-band light in galactic bulges and discs since redshift z ~ 0.8. We performed a bulge-to-disc decomposition of HST...

BeppoSAX temperature maps of galaxy clusters in the Corona Borealis supercluster: A2061, A2067 and A2124

In this paper we present the analysis of BeppoSAX observations of the cluster pairs A2061–A2067 and A2122–A2124, located in the Corona Borealis supercluster, which have been selected as candidate merging clusters. The aim of this work is to study the physics of the intracluster medium and to look for the possible presence of merging signatures. We derived the global temperatures...

The fundamental plane of galaxy clusters

The velocity dispersion σ, radius R and luminosity L of elliptical galaxies are known to be related, leaving only two degrees of freedom and defining the so-called ‘fundamental plane’. In this Letter, we present observational evidence that rich galaxy clusters exhibit a similar behaviour. Assuming a relation L ∝ Rα σ 2β, the best-fitting values of α and β are very close to those...

Bias in the estimation of global luminosity functions

We discuss a bias present in the calculation of the global luminosity function (LF) which occurs when analysing faint galaxy samples. This effect exists as a result of the different spectral energy distributions of galaxies, which are in turn quantified by the k corrections. We demonstrate that this bias occurs because not all galaxy types are visible in the same absolute...

The VIMOS VLT Deep Survey - Tracing the galaxy stellar mass assembly history over the last 8 Gyr

Aims. Our aim is to investigate the history of mass assembly for galaxies of different stellar masses and types.Methods. We selected a mass-limited sample of 4048 objects from the VIMOS VLT Deep Survey (VVDS) in the redshift interval . We then used an empirical criterion, based on the amplitude of the 4000 ÅBalmer break (Dn4000), to separate the galaxy population into...
