ADC_Keywords: Clusters, galaxy ; Radial velocities ; Magnitudes Keywords: galaxies: clusters: individual: AWM 7 - galaxies: luminosity function, mass function Abstract: We have measured redshifts and Kron-Cousins R-band magnitudes for a sample of galaxies in the poor cluster AWM 7. We have measured redshifts for 172 galaxies; 106 of these are cluster members. We determine the luminosity function (LF) from a photometric survey of the central 1.2x1.2h-1Mpc. The LF has a bump at the bright end and a faint-end slope of α=-1.37±0.16, populated almost exclusively by absorption-line galaxies. The cluster velocity dispersion is lower in the core (∼530km/s) than at the outskirts (∼680km/s), consistent with the cooling flow seen in the X-ray. The cold core extends ∼150h-1kpc from the cluster center. The Kron-Cousins R-band mass-to-light ratio of the system is 650±170hM/L, substantially lower than previous optical determinations, but consistent with most previous X-ray determinations. We adopt H0=100hkm/s/Mpc throughout this paper; at the mean cluster redshift (5247±76km/s), 1h-1Mpc subtends 65.5'. File Summary:
