12 03 2 v 1 2 D ec 1 99 8 Mass and Metallicity of Five X-ray Bright Galaxy Groups


We present ASCA X-ray observations of a sample of five groups selected from a cross-correlation of the ROSAT All-Sky Survey with the White et al. optical catalog of groups. These X-ray bright groups significantly increase the number of known systems with temperatures between 2 and 3 keV. They have element abundances of roughly 0.3⊙ that are typical of… (More)
