We study the capability of a numerically modelled galaxy cluster to produce giant arcs. The cluster is formed from CDM-like density perturbations via gravitational collapse, which is numerically treated with an N-body tree code. We also compute the X-ray emissivity of the baryonic intracluster medium under the assumption that this gas is lled into the gravitational potential of the dark cluster material. From the lensing properties of the cluster, from the statistical properties of the giant… CONTINUE READING
