Effects of Sub-mm and Radio Point Sources on the Recovery of Sunyaev-zeldovich Galaxy Cluster Parameters


Observations of clusters in the 30 to 350 GHz range can in principle be used to determine a galaxy cluster’s Comptonization parameter, y, peculiar velocity, v and gas temperature, Te via the dependence of the kinetic and thermal Sunyaev-Zeldovich (SZ) effects on these parameters. Despite the significant contamination expected from thermal emission by dust… (More)
