We present a new cluster catalog extracted from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 6 (SDSS DR6) using an adaptive matched filter (AMF) cluster finder. We identify 69,173 galaxy clusters in the redshift range 0.045 ≤ z < 0.78 in 8420 deg2 of the sky. We provide angular position, redshift, richness, core, and virial radii estimates for these clusters, as well as an error analysis for each of these quantities. We also provide a catalog of more than 205,000 galaxies representing the three… 
An optical catalog of galaxy clusters obtained from an adaptive matched filter finder applied to SDSS DR9 data
Abstract We present a new galaxy cluster catalog constructed from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 9 (SDSS DR9) using an Adaptive Matched Filter (AMF) technique. Our catalog has 46,479
A cluster finding algorithm based on the multiband identification of red sequence galaxies
We present a new algorithm, CAMIRA, to identify clusters of galaxies in wide-field imaging survey data. We base our algorithm on the stellar population synthesis model to predict colours of
Spectral Clustering for Optical Confirmation and Redshift Estimation of X-ray Selected Galaxy Cluster Candidates in the SDSS Stripe 82
TLDR
A galaxy cluster finding algorithm based on spectral clustering technique to identify optical counterparts and estimate optical redshifts for X-ray selected cluster candidates and finds that 12 candidates are considered as galaxy clusters in the redshift range from 0.29 to 0.57.
The 3XMM/SDSS Stripe 82 Galaxy Cluster Survey - I. Cluster catalogue and discovery of two merging cluster candidates
We present a galaxy cluster survey based on XMM-Newton observations that are located in Stripe 82 of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). The survey covers an area of 11.25 deg 2 . The X-ray cluster
Searching for galaxy clusters in the Kilo-Degree Survey
In this paper, we present the tools used to search for galaxy clusters in the Kilo Degree Survey (KiDS), and our first results. The cluster detection is based on an implementation of the optimal
A catalog of 132,684 clusters of galaxies identified from Sloan Digital Sky Survey III
Using the photometric redshifts of galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey III (SDSS-III), we identify 132,684 clusters in the redshift range of 0.05 ? z 1.0 ? 1014 M ? in the redshift range of
A New Reduction of the Blanco Cosmology Survey: An Optically Selected Galaxy Cluster Catalog and a Public Release of Optical Data Products
The Blanco Cosmology Survey is a four-band (griz) optical-imaging survey of ∼80 deg{sup 2} of the southern sky. The survey consists of two fields centered approximately at (R.A., decl.) = (23{sup h},
CALIBRATION OF THE OPTICAL MASS PROXY FOR CLUSTERS OF GALAXIES AND AN UPDATE OF THE WHL12 CLUSTER CATALOG
Accurately determining the mass of galaxy clusters is fundamental for many studies of cosmology and galaxy evolution. We collect and rescale the cluster masses of 1191 clusters of estimated by X-ray
The Structure of 2MASS Galaxy Clusters
We use a sample of galaxies from the Two Micron All Sky Survey Extended Source Catalog to refine a matched filter method of finding galaxy clusters that takes into account each galaxy's position,
Cluster Lensing Profiles Derived from a Redshift Enhancement of Magnified BOSS-survey Galaxies
We report the first detection of a redshift-depth enhancement of background galaxies magnified by foreground clusters. Using 300000 BOSS-Survey galaxies with accurate spectroscopic redshifts, we
