PICM - Physics of the Intra-Cluster Medium

3rd April 2017 - 7th April 2017
Beijing, China


The Intra Cluster Medium (ICM) constitutes the largest baryonic component of galaxy clusters. It is affected by gravitational and non-gravitational processes due to the interaction with the cluster galaxy population. It is now widely recognized that the cluster environment plays a fundamental role in determining the evolution of its galaxy population. In turn, feedback in cluster cores offer the unique opportunity to understand the interactions between star formation events and nuclear activity within the surrounding medium.
