Title Substractures and dynamical state of intracluster medium of A2199 to r180

Author Dr Kyoko Matsushita
Description We propose to map Abell 2199 cluster [z=0.03, 4.2 keV] out to r180:with two deep pointings (70 ks for each) towards a large-scale filament and a void, and seven pointings (20 ks for each) for remaining regions within 0.4--1.0 r180. One objective is to study luminosity and temperature functions of accreting substracture-subclumps and study dynamics of cluster outskirt. We will use spectra of sources and a logN-logS diagram to identify clumps. The other objective is to detect point-like sources to reduce uncertainties caused by unresolved sources with Suzaku. With Suzaku key project data of the same cluster, we will be able to study influence of substructure and other point sources on global X-ray out to r180.

Mission Description The European Space Agency's (ESA) X-ray Multi-Mirror Mission (XMM-Newton) was launched by an Ariane 504 on December 10th 1999. XMM-Newton is ESA's second cornerstone of the Horizon 2000 Science Programme. It carries 3 high throughput X-ray telescopes with an unprecedented effective area, and an optical monitor, the first flown on a X-ray observatory. The large collecting area and ability to make long uninterrupted exposures provide highly sensitive observations.
Since Earth's atmosphere blocks out all X-rays, only a telescope in space can detect and study celestial X-ray sources. The XMM-Newton mission is helping scientists to solve a number of cosmic mysteries, ranging from the enigmatic black holes to the origins of the Universe itself. Observing time on XMM-Newton is being made available to the scientific community, applying for observational periods on a competitive basis.
