Abstract

We present the analysis of X-ray and optical observations of Abell 2034. It is located at the moderate redshift of z=0.113. X-ray data are taken from the XMM-Newton archive. The best-fit single temperature of 7.6 keV model well defines the diffuse hot plasma. The cluster is observed by ground based optical Turkish National Observatory RTT-150 telescope. X-ray spectra of the individual sources from the cluster outskirts are studied. The intra cluster medium (ICM) temperature and metal distributions are constructed using wavelet algorithms. We explore the morphology and dynamical history of the cluster based on our multi-wavelength analysis results.
