The reviews presented in this volume cover a huge range of cluster of galaxies topics. Readers will find the book essential reading on subjects such as the physics of the ICM gas, the internal cluster dynamics, and the detection of clusters using different observational techniques. The expert chapter authors also cover the huge advances being made in analytical or numerical modeling of clusters, weak and strong lensing effects, and the large scale structure as traced by clusters.

Physics of the ICM gas
Internal cluster dynamics
Detection of clusters using different observational techniques
Analytical or numerical modeling of clusters
Weak and strong lensing effects
Large scale structure as traced by clusters
Cosmological significance of clusters
