nIFTy galaxy cluster simulations – V. Investigation of the cluster infall region (2016)
Journal Article
Arthur, J., Pearce, F. R., Gray, M. E., Elahi, P. J., Knebe, A., Beck, A. M., …Yepes, G. (2017). nIFTy galaxy cluster simulations – V. Investigation of the cluster infall region. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 464(2), doi:10.1093/mnras/stw2424. ISSN 0035-8711

We examine the properties of the galaxies and dark matter haloes residing in the cluster infall region surrounding the simulated _ cold dark matter galaxy cluster studied by Elahi et al. at z = 0. The 1.1 × 1015 h−1M_ galaxy cluster has been simulate... Read More

Linking the structural properties of galaxies and their star formation histories with STAGES (2016)
Journal Article
Hoyos, C., Aragón-Salamanca, A., Gray, M. E., Wolf, C., Maltby, D. T., Bell, E. F., …Jogee, S. (2016). Linking the structural properties of galaxies and their star formation histories with STAGES. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 455(1), doi:10.1093/mnras/stv2321. ISSN 0035-8711

We study the links between star formation history and structure for a large mass-selected galaxy sample at 0.05 ≤ zphot ≤ 0.30. The galaxies inhabit a very broad range of environments, from cluster cores to the field. Using Hubble Space Telescope (HS... Read More

Galaxy cluster mass reconstruction project - I. Methods and first results on galaxy-based techniques (2014)
Journal Article
Old, L., Skibba, R., Pearce, F. R., Croton, D., Muldrew, S. I., Muñoz-Cuartas, J., …Wojtak, R. (in press). Galaxy cluster mass reconstruction project - I. Methods and first results on galaxy-based techniques. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 441(2), doi:10.1093/mnras/stu545

This paper is the first in a series in which we perform an extensive comparison of various galaxy-based cluster mass estimation techniques that utilize the positions, velocities and colours of galaxies. Our primary aim is to test the performance of t... Read More
