We present an essentially complete, all-sky, X-ray flux limi ted sample of 242 Abell clusters of galaxies (six of which are double) compiled from ROSAT All-Sky Survey data. Our sample is uncontaminated in the sense that systems featuring prominent X-ray point sources such as AGN or foreground stars have been removed. The sample is limited to high Galactic latitudes (jbj� 20 � ), the nominal redshift range of the ACO catalogue of z � 0:2, and X-ray fluxes above 5:0�10 12 erg cm 2 s 1 in the 0.1… 
The Northern ROSAT All-Sky (NORAS) Galaxy Cluster Survey. I. X-Ray Properties of Clusters Detected as Extended X-Ray Sources*
In the construction of an X-ray-selected sample of galaxy clusters for cosmological studies, we have assembled a sample of 495 X-ray sources found to show extended X-ray emission in the first
The X-ray properties of nearby Abell clusters from the ROSAT All-Sky Survey : the sample and correlations with optical properties
We present an analysis of the X-ray emission for a complete sample of 288 Abell clusters spanning the redshift range 0.016 ≤ z ≤ 0.09 from the ROSAT All-Sky Survey. This sample is based on our 20 cm
The ROSAT-ESO Flux Limited X-ray (REFLEX) Galaxy cluster survey. V. The cluster catalogue
We present the catalogue of the REFLEX Cluster Survey providing information on the X-ray properties, redshifts, and some identification details of the clusters in the REFLEX sample. The catalogue
A Flux-limited Sample of Bright Clusters of Galaxies from the Southern Part of the ROSAT All-Sky Survey: The Catalog and log N-log S*
We describe the selection of an X-ray flux-limited sample of bright clusters of galaxies in the southern hemisphere, based on the first analysis of the ROSAT All-Sky Survey data (RASS1). The sample
The rapid evolution of AGN feedback in brightest cluster galaxies: switching from quasar-mode to radio-mode feedback
We present an analysis of the 2–10 keV X-ray emission associated with the active galactic nuclei (AGN) in brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs). Our sample consists of 32 BCGs that lie in highly X-ray
RASS-SDSS galaxy cluster survey - V. The X-ray-underluminous Abell clusters
Aims. In this paper we consider a large sample of optically selected clusters, in order to elucidate the physical reasons for the existence of X-ray underluminous clusters. Methods. For this purpose
The X-ray brightest clusters of galaxies from the Massive Cluster Survey
We present a statistically complete sample of very X-ray luminous galaxy clusters detected in the MAssive Cluster Survey (MACS). This second MACS release comprises all 34 MACS clusters with nominal
The ROSAT-ESO Flux-Limited X-ray (REFLEX) galaxy cluster survey - II. The spatial correlation function
We report the results of the spatial two-point correlation functioncc(r) for the new X- ray galaxy cluster survey REFLEX, which comprises of 452 X-ray selected clusters (449 with redshifts) detected
XMM-Newton Observations of Optically Selected Sloan Digital Sky Survey Clusters
We explore the X-ray properties of a subset of the optically selected Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) cluster sample of Goto et al. by analyzing seven public XMM-Newton pointings, with exposure times
The X-Ray Luminosity Function of Bright Galaxy Clusters in the Local Universe
We present the X-ray luminosity function (XLF) for clusters of galaxies derived from the RASS1 Bright Sample. The sample, selected from the ROSAT All-Sky Survey in a region of 2.5 sr within the
