Description of the 400d cluster list and statistical calibration
of the catalog. Cluster log N – log S and
evolving X-ray luminosity function. For description of the X-ray
detection algorithm, see Vikhlinin
et al. (1998).
Cluster mass estimates
Vikhlinin et al. 2006:
"Chandra Sample of Nearby Relaxed Galaxy Clusters: Mass, Gas Fraction, and Mass-Temperature Relation".
Hydrostatic total mass estimates in a sample of well-observed, low-z relaxed clusters. This work is a foundation of our calibration of scaling relations between total mass and X-ray observables.
Kotov & Vikhlinin 2006:
"Chandra Sample of Galaxy Clusters at z = 0.4-0.55: Evolution in the Mass-Temperature Relation".
Comparison of gas temperature, density, pressure, and entropy profiles and scalings in the simulated clusters and in the Chandra sample of V06. The main conclusion is that the X-ray properties of ART-simulated clusters match very well the observations except for the innermost regions.
