CoMaLit - III. Literature catalogues of weak lensing clusters of galaxies (LC2).


Abstract (from CDS):

The measurement of the mass of clusters of galaxies is crucial for their use in cosmology and astrophysics. Masses can be efficiently determined with weak lensing (WL) analyses. I compiled literature catalogues of WL clusters (LC2). Cluster identifiers, coordinates, and redshifts have been standardized. WL masses were reported to over-densities of 2500, 500, 200, and to the virial one in the reference ΛCDM model. Duplicate entries were carefully handled. I produced three catalogues: LC2-single, with 485 unique groups and clusters analysed with the single-halo model; LC2-substructure, listing substructures in complex systems; LC2-all, listing all the 822 WL masses found in the literature. The catalogues and future updates are publicly available at
