Linking star formation and environment in the A901/902 supercluster

Abstract:

We investigate correlations between the location of galaxies in dense environments and their degree of star formation activity. Using photometric redshifts and spectral classifications from the unique 17-band COMBO-17 survey we are able to precisely isolate galaxies from the Abell 901/902 supercluster within a thin redshift slice around z = 0.16. We compare the detailed photometric properties of the supercluster galaxies with the underlying dark matter density field as revealed by weak gravit...
