160d survey papers

Vikhlinin et al. 1998:  "A Catalog of 203 Galaxy Clusters Serendipitously Detected in the ROSAT PSPC Pointed Observations"
Description of the X-ray detection method. List of detected X-ray sources. Statistical calibration. Cluster log N – log S
Mullis et al. 2003:  "The 160 Square Degree ROSAT Survey: The Revised Catalog of 201 Clusters with Spectroscopic Redshifts"
Final object catalog with redshifts. Notes on optical IDs.
Vikhlinin et al. 1998:  "Evolution of Cluster X-Ray Luminosities and Radii: Results from the 160 Square Degree ROSAT Survey"
Initial results confirming negative evolution of the X-ray luminosity function. No evolution is found in the distribution of clusters sizes.
Mullis et al. 2004:  "Evolution of the Cluster X-Ray Luminosity Function"
Final analysis of the X-ray luminosity function from the 160d sample decidedly confirms the negative evolution in the comoving number density of high-Lx systems.
Vikhlinin et al. 1999:  "X-Ray Overluminous Elliptical Galaxies: A New Class of Mass Concentrations in the Universe?"
A significant fraction of clusters detected in X-ray appear as a seemingly isolated giant elliptical galaxy.
McNamara et al. 2001:  "A Richness Study of 14 Distant X-Ray Clusters from the 160 Square Degree Survey"
The paper discusses optical properties of the high-redshift X-ray selected clusters.
Vikhlinin et al. 2003:  "Cosmological constraints from evolution of cluster baryon mass function at z~0.5"
160d clusters are used to measure the evolution of the mass function at z>0.4. The cosmological fit to these data provides constraints on ΩM and ΩΛ comparable to those from SN and CMB inthe pre-WMAP era.
