1998 Astronomy and Astrophysics Supplement Series  
We assign cluster membership to 74 galaxies with heliocentric velocities in the interval 10500-13000 km/s.  ...  Spatial substructure tests do not find, however, any significant clumpiness in the plane of the sky, although the existence of subclustering along the line-of-sight cannot be excluded.  ...  P.S. acknowledges partial support from a research network grant by the Commission of the European Communities.  ...

Linking star formation and environment in supercluster galaxies

2004 Proceedings of the International Astronomical Union  
We present a unique multiwavelength dataset of the Abell 901/902 supercluster at z = 0.16.  ...  In addition, we present a preliminary dynamical analysis of the spectroscopic sample (n ∼ 300 galaxies), revealing a bimodal distribution of galaxy velocities and significant substructure.  ...  The large number of large circles in the SW corner indicate a group that is distinct relative to the three main clusters both spatially and kinematically.  ...

The Angular Clustering of Distant Galaxy Clusters

Casey Papovich
