"Dark Matter Distribution in the Halos of Clusters of Galaxies: an Observational Proposal"

Alexander Shcherbanovsky (Laboratory of Energy Sources,Academy of Sciences Ukraine)

An observational program for the Subaru telescope is proposed aimed at observational determination of the cluster total mass density distribution profile using weak lensing technique. A new approach is proposed - to create a fictitious cluster by superposing the individual cluster maps. A preliminary list of objects for observations is created.

Seminars are also held at JAC, CFHT, and IfA.
