Abstract

Parameters of the distant galaxy clusters of 3C295 (z=0.46) and Cl 0024+1654 (z=0.39) are compared with the predictions made using galaxies of the local clusters Coma (z=0.023) and DC 0329−52 (z=0.057) taking theK-effect into account. The distributions of colour and morphological type, and the amplitudesF +/F of the λ0 4000 discontinuity are examined and no evidence for evolution of the galaxies and the clusters can be seen.
