1 Results reported here are based on observations made with the Multiple Mirror Telescope, a joint facility of the Smithonian Institution and the University of Arizona ABSTRACT In the construction of an X-ray selected sample of galaxy clusters for cosmological studies, we have assembled a sample of 495 X-ray sources found to show extended X-ray emission in(More)
The ROSAT Deep Survey in the Lockman Hole is the most sensitive X-ray survey performed to date, encompassing an exposure time of 207 ksec with the PSPC and a total of 1.32 Msec with the HRI aboard ROSAT. Here we present the complete catalogue of 50 X-ray sources with PSPC fluxes (0.5-2 keV) above 5.5 × 10 −15 erg cm −2 s −1. The optical identifications are(More)
The Brattleboro rat carries as a recessive trait the inability to synthesize hypothalamic vasopressin and its related neurophysin but is able to synthesize oxytocin and its neurophysin. Brattleboro rats homozygous for this trait have no immunologically detectable circulating vasopressin and manifest a complete syndrome of diabetes insipidus, which is(More)
We present the rst results of a serendipitous search for clusters of galaxies in deep ROSAT-PSPC pointed observations at high galactic latitude. The survey is being carried out using a Wavelet based Detection Algorithm which is not biased against extended, low surface brightness sources. A new ux{diameter limited sample of 10 cluster candidates has been(More)
As the largest gravitationally bound objects in the universe, clusters of galaxies may contain a fair sample of the baryonic mass fraction of the universe. Since the gas mass fraction from the hot ICM is believed to be constant in time, the value of the cosmological deceleration parameter q 0 can be determined, in principle, by comparing the calculated gas(More)
