Bulk-flow and beta_I from the SMAC project

Abstract:

The SMAC project is a Fundamental Plane peculiar velocity survey of 56 clusters of galaxies to a depth of cz ~ 12000 km/s. We present here some results from the analysis of the SMAC velocity field, focussing on three specific features: the best-fitting bulk-flow model for the SMAC data; the agreement between the observed velocity field and predictions from the IRAS-PSCz redshift survey; the role of the Great Attractor and Shapley Concentration in generating the local flows. We argue that the ...
