Geometrical Properties of Galaxy Clusters
Source: Astrophysics and Space Science, Volume 283, Number 2, 2003 , pp. 161-171(11)
Empirical and analytical procedures are developed to determine the morphological properties of galaxy clusters. The apparent orientations and shapes are obtainted in two dimensional space while the direction towards the cluster pole is found in three dimensional space. These properties were determined for three Abell clusters and found to be strongly related.
