      The galaxy cluster Abell (at the center of this image) is so massive that it bends the light from objects behind it, acting as a cosmic magnifying glass. (Image credit: NASA/ESA/J. Richard. The study of galaxy formation and evolution is concerned with the processes that formed a heterogeneous universe from a homogeneous beginning, the formation of the first galaxies, the way galaxies change over time, and the processes that have generated the variety of structures observed in nearby galaxies. Galaxy formation is hypothesized to occur from structure formation theories, as a .

      Dwarf galaxies have attracted increased attention in recent years, because of their susceptibility to galaxy transformation processes within rich galaxy clusters . Galaxy clusters contain hundreds to thousands of galaxies. There is no fixed demarcation between a galaxy group and a galaxy cluster. However, in general, galaxy clusters not only have many more members than galaxy groups, but they also have a much higher concentration of galaxies in space. This means that galaxy clusters can be recognized out.

    A team of astronomers has discovered, for the first time, a “ridge” of plasma emitting radio waves and connecting two galaxy clusters in the process of merging. Two galaxy clusters are clashing with each other at supersonic speeds and merging together to create a larger galaxy cluster and in the process have created a turbulent cloud of gas that is ten.

About this book Mergers are the mechanisms by which galaxy clusters are assembled through the hierarchical growth of smaller clusters and groups. Major cluster mergers are the most energetic events in the Universe since the Big Bang.

Many of the observed properties of clusters depend on the physics of the merging process. These include substructure, shock, intra cluster plasma temperature and entropy structure, mixing of heavy elements within the intra cluster medium, acceleration of high-energy particles, formation of radio halos and the effects on the galaxy radio emission.

This book reviews our current understanding of cluster merging from an observational and theoretical perspective, and is appropriate for both. Mergers are the mechanisms by which galaxy clusters are assembled through the hierarchical growth of smaller clusters and groups.

Context. Galaxy groups and clusters are the main tools used to test cosmological models and to study the environmental e ect of galaxy formation. Aims. This work provides a catalogue of galaxy groups and clusters, as well as potentially merging systems based on the SDSS main galaxy survey.

Methods. To investigate the dynamics of the galaxy cluster A, we compile an extended catalog of spectroscopic redshifts of sources, including newly measured redshifts, within 30 arcmin from the cluster center.

Different physical processes leave their signatures on different wavelengths, thus our review is based on a multifrequency analysis.

of sub-clumps. We study the properties of merger shocks in merging galaxy clusters, using a set of cosmological simulations for the large-scale structure formation of the universe. As a representative case, we here focus on the simulated clusters that undergo almost head-on collisions with mass ratio ˘2.

Cluster formation processes are sensitive to the cosmological parameters, esp. dark energy. The key to tapping the number-count game is calibrating the cluster mass -- calibrate scaling relations.

Abstract Clusters of galaxies generally form by the gravitational merger of smaller clusters and groups. Major cluster mergers are the most energetic events in the Universe since the Big Bang.

Some of the basic physical properties of mergers will be discussed, with an emphasis on simple analytic arguments rather than numerical simulations. Periodic Processes Random Processes Questions Chapter 5 The Earth-Moon System. Earth and Moon we call these clumps galaxy clusters and galaxy groups.

We can calculate the clustering amplitude around each galaxy in the catalog and combine the numbers. We can also calculate the clustering amplitude on all angular scales. New York, June 8 Two galaxy clusters are banging into each other at supersonic speeds and merging together to create a larger galaxy cluster and in the process have created a turbulent cloud of gas that is ten times hotter than the Sun.

Galaxy mergers can occur when two (or more) galaxies collide. They are the most violent type of galaxy interaction. The gravitational interactions between galaxies and the friction between the gas and dust have major effects on the galaxies involved.

They are thought to form gradually, with smaller objects merging into bigger and bigger clusters. While the first touch, the so-called pre-merger phase, lasts for a relatively short period of time – around million years – the entire merging process takes billions of years to complete.

This model predicts that clusters and superclusters should still be in the process of gathering together, and observations do in fact suggest that clusters are still gathering up their flocks of galaxies and collecting more gas as it flows in along filaments.

In some instances we even see entire clusters of galaxies merging together.

It has a diameter of ab light-years and its distance from the Earth is about 28 million light-years. It can be easily spotted in the direction of the Virgo constellation with the help of a small.Although still in its infancy, the study of merging galaxy clusters has been shown to be one of the best means of determining the nature of dark matter.

However to realize this potential requires a concerted effort on the part of astronomers and computational theorist, due to necessity to compare simulations and observations of real systems.
