Conclusions

- We constrained the virial mass using galaxy positions and velocities data.
- We deduced high values for the concentration parameter using two independent methods.

- We estimated for the first time a detailed 3D velocity profile.
- We found that the caustic mass is a good estimation for the mass profile.
- Our three independent estimates for the mass profile are consistent with each other.

DM dynamics

Question: how one can determine DM dynamics when

“DM spectroscopy” is hard to obtain?

Answer: by using a surrogate Measurement. The first

Choice should be other kind of collisionless particles - galaxies.

The orbit of a test particle in a collisionless gravitational system is

independent of the particle mass. This would presumably imply

that once hydrostatic equilibrium is attained, most likely as a result

mixing and mean field relaxation, DM and galaxies should have the

same mean specific kinetic energy, i.e., ,

Best-fit values:

Conclusions

- We obtain the mean value of the DM velocity anisotropy parameter, and the DM density profile.
- r ∼ 1/3 r_vir seems to be a transition region interior to which collisional effects significantly modify the dynamical properties of the galaxy population with respect to those of DM in A1689

FIG. 5: The best-fit c(M) relation at z = 0.22 with the 1

allowed region indicated. The red points with errorbars show

the best-fit masses and concentrations for each bin when we

fit them individually, without requiring a power-law c(M) relation.

The blue dotted lines show the predictions of [39] for

our mass definition and redshift, for theWMAP1 (higher) and

WMAP3 (lower) cosmologies. The prediction for theWMAP5

cosmology falls in between the two and is not shown here.

Their measurements are actually lower than the theoretical model

Eventhough they have used WMAP1 (which gives a lower curve see

Duffy et al. 2007). This indicate that they stack the clusters without

From the cluster galaxy good. These two effect lowers the concentration value.
