The X-Ray Emission of E and SO Galaxies
It is well known by now that E and S0 galaxies are associated with hot, X- ray emitting gaseous halos, subject to central cooling flows, but otherwise homogeneous, which can be used to trace the galaxy potential and thus measure the total gravitational mass. Recent ASCA observations suggest that these halos have a surprisingly low metal abundance.
