The Scaling Relations of Galaxy Clusters and Their Dark Matter Halos

Abstract

Like early-type galaxies, also nearby galaxy clusters define a Fundamental Plane, a luminosityradius, and a luminosity-velocity dispersion relations, whose physical origin is still unclear. By means of high resolution N–body simulations of massive dark matter halos in a ΛCDM cosmology, we find that scaling relations similar to those observed for galaxy… (More)
