NewsClusters of galaxies: features of the XXXII IAC Winter School
PublicationComprehensive Gas Characterization of a z = 2.5 Protocluster: A Cluster Core Caught in the Beginning of Virialization?
In order to connect galaxy clusters to their progenitor protoclusters, we must constrain the star formation histories within their member galaxies and the...
PublicationDetection and Characterization of Galaxy Systems at Intermediate Redshift.
This thesis is divided into two very related parts. In the first part we implement and apply a galaxy cluster detection method, based on multiband observations...
PublicationEmergence of an Ultrared, Ultramassive Galaxy Cluster Core at z = 4
Recent simulations and observations of massive galaxy cluster evolution predict that the majority of stellar mass buildup happens within cluster members by z =...
PublicationGalaxy pairs and clusters in a lambda CDM universe: Bridging observation and simulation
I use computer simulations to examine the evolution of close galaxy pair counts and the formation of galaxy clusters. I show that the evolution of the close...
PublicationGrowing a `cosmic beast': observations and simulations of MACS J0717.5+3745
We present a gravitational lensing and X-ray analysis of a massive galaxy cluster and its surroundings. The core of MACS J0717.5+3745 (M(R
NewsIAC Scientists have characterized over 200 new clusters of galaxies first detected by the Planck satellite using the telescopes on La Palma
An international team led by the group of Cosmology with Galaxy Clusters of the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC), including researchers from the...
PublicationMicrowave spectro-polarimetry of matter and radiation across space and time
This paper discusses the science case for a sensitive spectro-polarimetric survey of the microwave sky. Such a survey would provide a tomographic and dynamic...
PublicationOptical Identifications of Galaxy Clusters Among Objects from the Second Planck Catalogue of Sunyaev-Zeldovich Sources
We present the results of optical identifications and spectroscopic redshift measurements for galaxy clusters from the second Planck catalogue of Sunyaev...
