[53.02] Correlations of Radio Source Counts in 273 Abell Clusters of Galaxies to Cluster Properties

K. S. Krughoff, D. J. Batuski (University of Maine)

We present radio source counts for a complete volume limited (z < 0.1) sample of 273 Abell clusters. Source counts are correlated with other cluster properties including cluster type, distance, richness, number of cluster members, and environment density. All source counts are limited to the region defined by the Abell radius (projected 4.5 Mpc) from the cluster center, and have been corrected for background contamination. Within each cluster, the ratio of head-tail sources to point sources was determined. We use the ratio as a second correlation parameter.

This research was made possible by a fellowship funded by the Maine Space Grant Consortium.
