ABSTRA C T We present a detailed analysis of the X-ray properties of the cooling flows in a sample of nearby, X-ray-bright clusters of galaxies using high-quality ASCA spectra and ROSAT X-ray images. We demonstrate the need for multiphase models to consistently explain the spectral and imaging X-ray data for the clusters. The mass deposition rates of the cooling flows, independently determined from the ASCA spectra and ROSAT images, exhibit reasonable agreement. We confirm the presence of… 

High-Resolution X-Ray Spectroscopic Constraints on Cooling-Flow Models for Clusters of Galaxies

We present high-resolution X-ray spectra of 14 putative cooling-flow clusters of galaxies obtained with the Reflection Grating Spectrometer on XMM-Newton. The clusters in the sample span a large

Chandra X-ray observations of the 3C 295 cluster core

We examine the properties of the X-ray gas in the central regions of the distant (z=0.46), X-ray luminous cluster of galaxies surrounding the powerful radio source 3C 295, using observations made

Temperature and Heavy-Element Abundance Profiles of Cool Clusters of Galaxies from ASCA

We perform a spatially resolved X-ray spectroscopic study of a set of 18 relaxed clusters of galaxies with gas temperatures below 4 keV. Spectral analysis was done using ASCA/SIS data coupled with

Projection effects in X-ray cores of cooling flow galaxy clusters

ABSTRA C T Recent analyses of Newton-XMM and Chandra data of the cores of X-ray bright clusters of galaxies show that modelling with a multi-phase gas in which several temperatures and densities are

The peculiar cooling flow cluster RX J0820.9+0752

We present observations of the cluster of galaxies associated with the X-ray source RX J0820.9+0752 and its dramatic central cluster galaxy in the optical and X-ray wavebands. Unlike other cooling

Spatially resolved X‐ray spectroscopy of the core of the Centaurus cluster

ABSTRA C T We present Chandra data from a 31.7-ks observation of the Centaurus cluster, using the ACIS-S detector. Images of the X-ray emission show a plume-like feature at the centre of the cluster,

Cool X-ray emitting gas in the core of the Centaurus cluster of galaxies

We use a deep XMM-Newton Reflection Grating Spectrometer observation to examine the X-ray emission from the core of the Centaurus cluster of galaxies. We clearly detect Fe XVII emission at four

The new emerging model for the structure of cooling cores in clusters of galaxies

New X-ray observations with XMM-Newton show a lack of spectral evidence for large amounts of cooling and condensing gas in the centers of galaxy clusters believed to harbour strong cooling flows.

Chandra observations of the galaxy cluster Abell 1835

We present the analysis of 30 ks of Chandra observations of the galaxy cluster Abell 1835. Overall, the X-ray image shows a relaxed morphology, although we detect substructure in the inner 30-kpc
