We have conducted an observing campaign with the FORS instruments at the ESO-Very Large Telescope to ex- plore the kinematical properties of spiral galaxies in distant galaxy clusters. Our main goal is to analyse transformation - and interaction processes of disk galaxies within the special environment of clusters as compared to the hierarchical evolution of galaxies in the field. Spatially resolved multi object spectra have been obtained for seven galaxy clusters at 0.3 2 h we reach an S/N > 5… Expand
Internal kinematics of spiral galaxies in distant clusters III. Velocity fields from FORS2/MXU spectroscopy
Context. We continue our investigation on how the cluster environment affects the evolution of galaxies. Aims. By examining both galaxy structure and internal kinematics of cluster galaxies atExpand
Internal kinematics of spiral galaxies in distant clusters - IV. Gas kinematics of spiral galaxies in intermediate redshift clusters and in the field
Aims: We trace the interaction processes of galaxies at intermediate redshift by measuring the irregularity of their ionized gas kinematics, and investigate these irregularities as a function of theExpand
The Tully-Fisher relation of intermediate redshift field and cluster galaxies from Subaru spectroscopy
We have carried out spectroscopic observations in four cluster fields using Subaru's FOCAS multislit spectrograph and obtained spectra for 103 bright disc field and cluster galaxies at 0.06 ≤ z ≤Expand
Constraints on the Alignment of Galaxies in Galaxy Clusters from $\sim$14,000 Spectroscopic Members
Torques acting on galaxies lead to physical alignments, but the resulting ellipticity correlations are difficult to predict. As they constitute a major contaminant for cosmic shear studies, it isExpand
The Tully—Fisher relation of distant cluster galaxies
We have measured maximum rotation velocities (V rot ) for a sample of 111 emission-line galaxies with 0.1 ≤ z ≤ 1, observed in the fields of six clusters. From these data we construct 'matched'Expand
2D velocity fields of simulated interacting disc galaxies
We investigate distortions in the velocity fields of disc galaxies and their use to reveal the dynam- ical state of interacting galaxies at different redshift. For that purpose, we model discExpand
Kinematic and chemical evolution of early-type galaxies ,
We investigate in detail 13 early-type field galaxies with 0.2 < z < 0.7 drawn from the F Deep Field. Since the majority (9 galaxies) is at z ≈ 0.4, we compare the field galaxies to 22 members ofExpand

Astrophysikalisches Institut Potsdam, An der Sternwarte 16, D-14482 Potsdam, Germany-/-Abstract. We present an investigation of galaxy-galaxy interactions and their effects on the velocity fields ofExpand
The effects of ram-pressure stripping on the internal kinematics of simulated spiral galaxies
Aims. We investigate the influence of ram-pressure stripping on th e internal gas kinematics of simulated spiral galaxies. Add itional emphasis is put on the question of how the resulting distortiExpand
Structure of visible and dark matter components in spiral galaxies at redshifts z = 0.5{-0.9}
We have constructed self-consistent light and mass distribution models for four disk galaxies at redshifts $z=0.48,$ 0.58, 0.81 and 0.88, using the HST archive WFPC2 observations (HDF-S, MDS, GrothExpand
