• Cluster Winds Blow along Supercluster Axes 

    Novikov, Dmitri I.; Melott, Adrian L.; Wilhite, Brian C.; Kaufman, Michael; Burns, Jack O.; Miller, Christopher J.; Batuski, David J. (Wiley-Blackwell, 1998-12)
    Within Abell galaxy clusters containing wide-angle tailed (WAT) radio sources, there is evidence of a `prevailing wind' which directs the WAT jets. We study the alignment of WAT jets and nearby clusters to test the idea ...
  • Mass and Metallicity of Five X-Ray-bright Galaxy Groups 

    Hwang, Una; Mushotzky, Richard F.; Burns, Jack O.; Fukazawa, Yasushi; White, Richard A. (American Astronomical Society, 1999-05)
    We present ASCA X-ray observations of a sample of Ðve groups selected from a cross-correlation of the ROSAT All-Sky Survey with the White et al. optical catalog of groups. These X-rayÈbright groups significantly increase ...
  • Massive Cooling Flow Clusters Inhabit Crowded Environments 

    Loken, Christen; Melott, Adrian L.; Miller, Christopher J. (American Astronomical Society, 1999-07)
    With the availability of large-scale redshift survey data, it is now becoming possible to explore correlations between large-scale structure and the properties and morphologies of galaxy clusters. We investigate the spatial ...
  • The X-Ray Luminosity Function of Nearby Rich and Poor Clusters of Galaxies:A Cosmological Probe 

    Ledlow, Michael J.; Loken, Christen; Burns, Jack O.; Owen, Frazer N.; Voges, Wolfgang (American Astronomical Society, 1999-05)
    In this Letter, we present a new determination of the local (z · 0.09) X-ray luminosity function (XLF) using a large, statistical sample of 294 Abell clusters and the ROSAT All-Sky Survey. Despite the optical selection of ...
