We report results of a search for optical emission line gas in the Hickson compact group 62. From narrow band (H-alpha) imaging observations we estimate 10^4 Msun of ionized hydrogen gas within the central regions of three of the galaxies in the group. There has been considerable interest in this group since ROSAT detected an extended halo of diffuse X-ray emission, possibly with a cooling flow at the center. The optical emission line luminosities from the three galaxies are comparable to each…

CAVITIES AND SHOCKS IN THE GALAXY GROUP HCG 62 AS REVEALED BY CHANDRA, XMM-NEWTON, AND GIANT METREWAVE RADIO TELESCOPE DATA

We report on the results of an analysis of Chandra, XMM-Newton, and new Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT) data of the X-ray bright compact group of galaxies HCG 62, which is one of the few

We present the results of our study of a volume-limited sample (z <= 0.071) of 101 X-ray galaxy groups and clusters, in which we explore the X-ray cavity energetics. Out of the 101 sources in our

The Nuclear Activity of Galaxies in the Hickson Compact Groups

In order to investigate the nuclear activity of galaxies residing in compact groups of galaxies, we present results of our optical spectroscopic program made at Okayama Astrophysical Observatory. We

Deep high-resolution X-ray spectra from cool-core clusters

We examine deep XMM-Newton Reflection Grating Spectrometer (RGS) spectra from the cores of three X-ray bright cool-core galaxy clusters, Abell 262, Abell 3581 and HCG 62. Each of the RGS spectra

A volume-limited sample of X-ray galaxy groups and clusters – III. Central abundance drops

We present the results of a search and study of central abundance drops in a volume-limited sample (z<=0.071) of 101 X-ray galaxy groups and clusters. These are best observed in nearby, and so best

Thermodynamic properties, multiphase gas, and AGN feedback in a large sample of giant ellipticals

We present a study of the thermal structure of the hot X-ray emitting atmospheres for a sample of 49 nearby X-ray and optically bright elliptical galaxies using {\it Chandra} X-ray data. We focus on

An Entropy Threshold for Strong Hα and Radio Emission in the Cores of Galaxy Clusters

Our Chandra X-Ray Observatory archival study of intracluster entropy in a sample of 222 galaxy clusters shows that Hα and radio emission from the brightest cluster galaxy are much more pronounced

Very Large Array Radio Study of a Sample of Nearby X-Ray and Optically Bright Early-type Galaxies

Many massive early-type galaxies host central radio sources and hot X-ray atmospheres indicating the presence of radio-mechanical active galactic nucleus (AGN) feedback. The duty cycle and detailed
