Abstract

Several simple mergers between model galaxy clusters containing a mixture of gas and dark matter are examined, testing the coupling of the gas to the underlying collisionless material. The gas is shocked, irreversibly dissipating the energy fed into it by the collisionless component and forms a resolved constant-density core. For the dark matter, however… (More)
