## The SAMI Galaxy Survey: Mass as the Driver of the Kinematic Morphology-Density Relation in Clusters

### Description

We examine the kinematic morphology of early-type galaxies (ETGs) in eight galaxy clusters in the Sydney-AAO Multi-object Integral-field spectrograph Galaxy Survey. The clusters cover a mass range of $14.2\,\lt \mathrm{log}({M}_{200}/{M}_{\odot })\lt 15.2$ and we measure spatially resolved stellar kinematics for 315 member galaxies with stellar masses $10.0\lt \mathrm{log}({M}_{* }/{M}_{\odot })\leqslant 11.7$ within 1 R 200 of the cluster centers. We calculate the spin parameter, λ R , and use...[Show more]
