  • There is a strong spatial correlation between brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs) and the peak density and cooling rate of the intra-cluster medium (ICM). In this paper we combine integral field spectroscopy, CO observations and X-ray data to study three exceptional clusters (Abell 1991, Abell 3444 and Ophiuchus) where there is a physical and dynamical offset between the BCG and the cooling peak to investigate the connection between the cooling of the intracluster medium, the cold gas being… CONTINUE READING
