Properties of the X-ray-brightest Abell-type clusters of galaxies (XBACs) from ROSAT All-Sky Survey data - I. The sample
We present an essentially complete, all-sky, X-ray flux limi ted sample of 242 Abell clusters of galaxies (six of which are double) compiled from ROSAT All-Sky Survey data. Our sample isExpand

Galaxy cluster X-ray luminosity scaling relations from a representative local sample (REXCESS)
We examine the X-ray luminosity scaling relations of 31 nearby galaxy clusters from the Representative XMM-Newton Cluster Structure Survey (REXCESS). The objects are selected only in X-rayExpand

Discovery of an X-ray-Luminous Galaxy Cluster at z=1.4
We report the discovery of a massive, X-ray-luminous cluster of galaxies at z = 1.393, the most distant X-ray-selected cluster found to date. XMMU J2235.3-2557 was serendipitously detected as anExpand

The ROSAT-ESO Flux Limited X-ray (REFLEX) Galaxy cluster survey. V. The cluster catalogue
We present the catalogue of the REFLEX Cluster Survey providing information on the X-ray properties, redshifts, and some identification details of the clusters in the REFLEX sample. The catalogueExpand

XMM-Newton observations of the Perseus Cluster. I. The temperature and surface brightness structure
We present preliminary results of a XMM-Newton 50 ks observation of the Perseus Cluster that provides an unprecedented view of the central 0.5 Mpc region. The projected gas temperature declinesExpand

Details of the mass-temperature relation for clusters of galaxies
We present results on the total mass and temperature determination using two samples of clusters of galaxies. One sample is constructed with emphasis on the completeness of the sample, while theExpand

Stellar and Total Baryon Mass Fractions in Groups and Clusters Since Redshift 1
We investigate if the discrepancy between estimates of the total baryon mass fraction obtained from observations of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) and of galaxy groups/clusters persists when aExpand

A new measurement of the X-ray temperature function of clusters of galaxies
We present a newly measured X-ray temperature function of galaxy clusters using a complete flux-limited sample of 61 clusters. The sample is constructed with the total survey area of 8.14 steradiansExpand

A ROSAT survey of Hickson's compact galaxy groups
We report the results of an almost complete survey of the X-ray properties of Hickson's compact galaxy groups with the ROSAT PSPC. Diffuse X-ray emission is detected from 22 groups. We infer that hotExpand

Gas entropy in a representative sample of nearby X-ray galaxy clusters (REXCESS): relationship to gas mass fraction
We examine the radial entropy distribution and its scaling using 31 nearby galaxy clusters from the Representative XMM-Newton Cluster Structure Survey (REXCESS), a sample in the temperature range 2-9Expand
