J/AJ/120/2338       Abell 576 redshifts                      (Rines+, 2000)

The infall region of Abell 576: independent mass and light profiles. Rines K., Geller M.J., Diaferio A., Mohr J.J., Wegner G.A. <Astron. J. 120, 2338 (2000)> =2000AJ....120.2338R
ADC_Keywords: Clusters, galaxy ; Redshifts ; Extinction Keywords: cosmology: observations - dark matter - galaxies: clusters: individual (A576) - galaxies: kinematics and dynamics - galaxies: photometry Abstract: We describe observations of the nearby (cz=11487km/s) cluster of galaxies Abell 576 beyond the virial radius and into the infall region where galaxies are on their first or second pass through the cluster. Using 1057 redshifts, we use the infall pattern in redshift space to determine the mass profile of A576 to a radius of ∼4h-1Mpc. File Summary:
