Description We use XMM to map the cluster Abell 2199 intermediate region (<3-4 virial radius) and search X-ray faint substructures in a wide spacial range from a galaxy to a cluster and larger sizes. We observed this area with SUZAKU and found a number of structures and a hint of asymmetric large scale emission. These substructures along with unresolved background sources should be resolved spatially and covered fully with XMM imaging. Errors of the EPIC background will be reduced by our SUZAKU deep spectra. These X-ray maps will be compared with our wide area weak-lensing data observed with <>ARU Hyper suprime-Cam. The XMM observations provide uniquely a direct comparison among structures of galaxies, ICM, and dark matter.

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.
