    • n galax A genus of plants, referred to the natural order Diapensiaceæ, of a single species, G. aphylla, found in open woods from Virginia to Georgia. It is a stemless evergreen, with round-cordate leaves and a tall scape bearing a slender raceme of numerous small white flowers.
    • n galax The plant Galax aphylla, known also as galaxy and beetle-weed. Because of its persistent shining leaves galax is gathered in large quantities and sold by florists for ornamental purposes.

In summary, the synthesis presented in §6.1 aims to diagnose whether or not the clusters are dynamically mature using independent probes of dark matter (inferred from the lensing mass maps), hot intra–cluster gas and cluster galax ies.

More data on the recession velocities of the neighbours are needed in order to access a de finitive picture of the environment of each CIG galax y.

Also, the mass fraction of stars bound to cluster galax ies agrees very well with observations in our simulations with AGN.

The black contours are drawn from the velocity field which was used for the estimate of the dynam ical center (bulk velocity field from Oh et al. 2008 for IC 2574, her mite velocity field from de Blok et al. 2008 for the other galax ies).

Morgan (1958, 1959) has introduced a classification of galax ies based on their nuclear region stellar population.

The inflection marks the point where the highest galax ies velocities change from being associated with the largest scales (due to infall), to instead be linked to the smallest scales (due to FOG).
Testing cosmological structure formation using redshift-space distortions
Sect. 4.3 focuses on the determination of the local tidal gravitational field from an ensemble of galax y images.
Weak Gravitational Lensing
By contrast, for QSOs with modest luminosity (-25.3 < MB < -21.5), the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) optical imaging observations of QSOs at z ∼ 2 found in the Galaxy Evolution from Morphologies and SEDs (GEMS) survey field reveal modest star formation in their host galax ies (Jahnke et al. 2004).
