Abstract

We investigate the stellar and dynamical mass profiles of 32 brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs, MK = −25.7 to −27.8 mag) in massive clusters (0.05 < z < 0.30), and in particular the rising velocity dispersion profiles of 23 of these BCGs found in Loubser et al. (2018). We make comprehensive measurements of the Gauss-Hermite higher order velocity moments h3 and h4, and find positive central values for h4 for all the BCGs. We model the stellar and dynamical mass profiles of 25 of the BCGs using the Multi-Gaussian Expansion (MGE) and Jeans Anisotropic Method (JAM) for an axisymmetric case, deriving the stellar mass-to-light ratio (ϒ*DYN), and anisotropy (βz). We further explicitly add a dark matter halo mass component (MDM within r200) which we constrain from weak lensing results. In this proceedings, we summarise the study and show an example of the results.
