Meso-structure in three strong-lensing systems


We map substructure in three strong lensing systems having particularly good image data: the galaxy lens MG J0414+053 and the clusters SDSS J1004+411 and ACO 1689. Our method is to first reconstruct the lens as a pixelated mass map and then substract off the symmetric part (in the galaxy case) or a projected NFW (for the cluster lenses). In all three… (More)
