Orientation of Galaxies in Clusters

Bukhari, F.A.; Cram, Lawrence


A detailed analysis of the geometry of galaxies in clusters has been undertaken in both two and three dimensional space. The procedure was applied to the three Abell clusters A1644, A548 E and A548 W. No significant alignment trend of galaxies in clusters confirmed in three dimensional space was found. This result is consistent with the mixed dark matter model MDM of galaxy formation. The result is also consistent with Peebles suggestion that protogalaxies acquired angular momentum from tidal...[Show more]
