On the evolutionary status of early-type galaxies in clusters at z~0.2 - I. The Fundamental Plane

Abstract:

We investigate a spectroscopic sample of 48 early-type (E+S0) galaxies in the rich cluster Abell 2390 (z=0.23) and 48 E+S0 galaxies from a previously published survey of Abell 2218 (z=0.18). The A2390 spectra are based on Multi Object Spectroscopy with MOSCA at the Calar Alto 3.5-m, complemented by ground-based and HST F555W and F814W observations. Our investigation spans a broad range in luminosity (-20.5>M_r>-23.0) and a wide FOV of 1.5x1.5 Mpc^2. Since the A2218 and A2390 samples are...
