AGN Feedback in the Cores of Clusters of Galaxies

Dr. Alastair Edge

Abstract

Over the past decade there has been a growing body of evidence for a closely regulated balance of heating and cooling of the intracluster medium in the cores of clusters. I will review this evidence with a particular emphasis on the role of cold gas and dust as the fuel for AGN feedback that dominates these systems.
