" Spectroscopic study of galaxies within the structure around Cl 0939+4713 "

Fumiaki Nakata (NAOJ)


We present a discovery of large-scale structures around Cl 0939+4713 at z=0.4 based on spectroscopic redshifts. In our previous papers, we suggested that there are filaments and subclumps around the cluster core using the photometric redshfit technique. A spectroscopic follow-up observation with the Subaru/FOCAS was carried out on eight selected regions covering the most prominent structures to confirm their association to the main cluster. We confirm that 96 galaxies are cluster members, which form large-scale structures around the cluster core: eg., a large subclump to the west and filaments to the south and northwest. We also discuss stellar populations of galaxies in the structures.


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