Metal Enrichment in the Intra-Cluster Medium
Institute for Astro- and Particle
Physics, University of Innsbruck, Technikerstr. 25, 6020 Innsbruck, Austria
The enrichment of the Intra-Cluster Medium (ICM) with heavy elements is reviewed. There is now good observational evidence for enrichment including abundance ratios and metallicity distributions. Various processes involved in the enrichment process – ram-pressure stripping, galactic winds, galaxy-galaxy interactions, AGN outflows and intra-cluster supernovae – are described. Simulations of the ICM evolution taking into account metal enrichment are presented.
