A Mass Dependent Density Profile from Dwarfs to Clusters

A. Del Popolo, M. Le Delliou

In this paper, we extend the work of Freundlich et al. 2020 who showed how to obtain a Dekel–Zhao density profile with mass dependent shape parameters in the case of galaxies. In the case of Freundlich et al. 2020, the baryonic dependence was obtained using the NIHAO set of simulations. In our case, we used simulations based on a model of ours. Following Freundlich et al. 2020, we obtained the dependence from baryon physics of the two shape parameters, obtaining in this way a mass dependent Dekel–Zhao profile describing the dark matter profiles from galaxies to clusters of galaxies. The extension to the Dekel–Zhao mass dependent profile to clusters of galaxies is the main result of the paper. In the paper, we show how the Dekel–Zhao mass dependent profile gives a good description of the density profiles of galaxies, already shown by Freundlich et al. 2020, but also to a set of clusters of galaxies.
