Abstract

We present the analysis and results of a new spectroscopic and photometric survey of the central 1.5 ${\rm Mpc}^2$ region of the galaxy cluster A3921 (z=0.094). We detect the presence of two dominant clumps of galaxies with a mass ratio of $\sim$4-5: a main cluster centered on the BCG (A3921-A), and a NW sub-cluster (A3921-B) hosting the second brightest cluster object. By comparing optical results to the X-ray analysis of XMM observations (Belsole et al. 2004), we find that A3921-B is tangentially traversing the main cluster along a SW/NE direction. The analysis of stellar populations of more than one hundred cluster members reveals that the merger event has probably affected the kinematics and spectral properties of the active galaxies in A3921.To search for other articles by the author(s) go to: http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abstract_service.html
