J/AJ/104/495        Galaxy redshifts                         (Malumuth+, 1992)

Dynamics of clusters of galaxies with central dominant galaxies. I. Galaxy redshifts. Malumuth E.M., Kriss G.A., Dixon W.V., Ferguson H.C., Ritchie C. <Astron. J. 104, 495 (1992)> =1992AJ....104..495M (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)
ADC_Keywords: Galaxies, optical ; Redshifts Abstract: Optical redshifts are presented for a sample of 638 galaxies in the fields of the clusters Abell 85, DC 0107-46, Abell 496, Abell 2052, and DC 1842-63. The velocity histograms and wedge diagrams show evidence for a foreground sheet of galaxies in Abell 85 and background sheets of galaxies in DC 0107-46 and Abell 2052. The foreground group projected against the center of Abell 85 found by Beers et al. (1991AJ....102.1581B) is confirmed. No evidence of substructure was found in Abell 496, Abell 2052, and DC 1842-63. The clusters have global velocity dispersions ranging from 551 km/s for DC 1842-63 to 714km/s for A496, and flat dispersion profiles. Mass estimates using the virial theorem and the projected mass method range from 2.3x1014 solar masses for DC 0107-46 to 1.1x1015 solar masses for A85. File Summary:

Note (1): Sources of the redshift: In most cases it is an abbreviation for one of the nine observing runs. However, in 57 cases, the velocity comes from the literature: BW: Bell & Whitemore (1989ApJS...70..139B) QMIT: Quintana et al. (1985AJ.....90..410Q) RWF: Rubin, Whitemore & Ford (1988ApJ...333..522R) T85: Tonry (1985AJ.....90....1K) ZHG: Zabludoff et al. (1990ApJS...74....1Z)
