X-ray modelling of galaxy cluster gas and mass profiles

Gas profiles for Abell 1060 vs. best-fit model An example of the cluster model applied to data for the galaxy cluster Abell 1060. The fitted data are the gas temperature and density data (points with error bars in the top panels) and the best-fit model is shown as a solid line with associated 1 sigma error envelope. The lower two panels show the corresponding gas pressure and entropy.
