Scaling Relations of Galaxy Clusters
UPDATE: The majority of the talks are now available as pdf files on the Schedule page
PRESS RELEASE: Astronomers reveal a cosmic 'Axis of Evil' - Cluster community to work together to solve new Universe puzzle click for details
Scaling relations provide a fundamental measurement of the mass distribution within galaxy clusters, the baryonic physics of the interstellar medium and the underlying cosmological parameters. The focus of this meeting is: (i) the measurement of X-ray, optical and SZ scaling laws in local and intermediate redshift systems to investigate the evolution of the intra-cluster medium; (ii) the application of these measurements in cluster surveys to measure cosmological parameters; (iii) comparison between theory and observations and the direction for future high redshift cluster studies.
