Cluster Turbulence

  title={Cluster Turbulence},
  author={Michael L. Norman and Greg L. Bryan},
We report on results of recent, high resolution hydrodynamic simulations of the formation and evolution of X-ray clusters of galaxies carried out within a cosmological framework. We employ the highly accurate piecewise parabolic method (PPM) on fixed and adaptive meshes which allow us to resolve the flow field in the intracluster gas. The excellent shock capturing and low numerical viscosity of PPM represent a substantial advance over previous studies using SPH. We find that in flat… CONTINUE READING
