Spectral Distortions of the Cosmic Microwave Radiation Due to Interaction with the Hot Gas in a Moving Cluster: Inclusion of Relativistic Effects


A relativistic treatment of the spectral eeects that arise during the passage of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation through intracluster gas due to chaotic motion of electrons (thermal eeect) and due to the motion of a galaxy cluster as a whole (kinematic eeect) is given. The Monte Carlo simulations which were performed by two diierent methods… (More)
