The Sunyaev-Zel'dovich Effect (SZE) has been observed toward six massive galaxy clusters, at redshifts 0.091 ≤ z ≤ 0.322 in the 86-102 GHz band with the Y. T. Lee Array for Microwave Background Anisotropy (AMiBA). We modify an iterative method, based on the isothermal β models, to derive the electron temperature T e, total mass M t, gas mass M g, and integrated Compton Y within r 2500, from the AMiBA SZE data. Non-isothermal universal temperature profile (UTP) β models are also considered in… Expand
