We investigate structural properties of old, metal-poor globular clusters (GCs) formed at high redshifts (z > 6) and located inside and outside virialized galaxy-scale haloes in clusters of galaxies with the total masses of MCL based on high-resolution cosmological simulations with models of GC formation. We mainly derive the parameter dependences of physical properties of intracluster GCs (ICGCs) based on the results of 14 cluster models. Our principle results are summarized as follows… 
The origin of globular cluster systems from cosmological simulations
We investigate the structural, kinematical and chemical properties of globular cluster systems (GCSs) in galaxies of different Hubble types in a self-consistent manner based on high-resolution
TIDAL STRIPPING OF GLOBULAR CLUSTERS IN A SIMULATED GALAXY CLUSTER
Using a cosmological N-body numerical simulation of the formation of a galaxy-cluster-sized halo, we analyze the temporal evolution of its globular cluster population. We follow the dynamical
TIDAL STRIPPING OF GLOBULAR CLUSTERS IN THE VIRGO CLUSTER
With the aim of finding evidence of tidal stripping of globular clusters (GCs) we analyzed a sample of 13 elliptical galaxies taken from the ACS Virgo Cluster Survey (VCS). These galaxies belong to
Formation of Intracluster and Intercluster Globular Clusters
Based on high-resolution cosmological simulations with models of GC formation at high redshifts (z > 6), we investigate structural and kinematical properties of intracluster globular clusters (ICGCs)
Substructure in the Globular Cluster Populations of the Virgo Cluster Elliptical Galaxies M84 and M86
We have carried out a search for substructure within the globular cluster (GC) systems of M84 (NGC 4374) and M86 (NGC 4406), two giant elliptical galaxies in the Virgo Cluster. We use wide-field (36′
Detection of a Large-Scale Structure of Intracluster Globular Clusters in the Virgo Cluster
TLDR
A map showing the large-scale distribution of globular clusters over the entire Virgo cluster shows that IGCs are found out to 5 million light years from the Virgo center and that they are concentrated in several substructures that are much larger than galaxies.
THE HST/ACS COMA CLUSTER SURVEY. IV. INTERGALACTIC GLOBULAR CLUSTERS AND THE MASSIVE GLOBULAR CLUSTER SYSTEM AT THE CORE OF THE COMA GALAXY CLUSTER
Intracluster stellar populations are a natural result of tidal interactions in galaxy clusters. Measuring these populations is difficult, but important for understanding the assembly of the most
The globular cluster systems of Abell 1185
We examine the properties of a previously discovered population of globular clusters in the heart of the rich galaxy cluster Abell 1185 that might be intergalactic in nature. Deep images obtained
Formation of the Galactic globular clusters with He-rich stars in low-mass haloes virialized at high redshift
Recent observations have reported that the Galactic globular clusters (GCs) with unusually extended horizontal-branch (EHB) morphologies show a significantly lower velocity dispersion compared with
Intra-cluster Globular Clusters in a Simulated Galaxy Cluster
Using a cosmological dark matter simulation of a galaxy-cluster halo, we follow the temporal evolution of its globular cluster population. To mimic the red and blue globular cluster populations, we
