Abstract (from CDS):

We present a detailed study of the iron content of the core of the high-redshift cluster WARPJ1415.1+3612 (z=1.03). By comparing the central Fe mass excess observed in this system, MFeexc=(1.67±0.40)x109M, with those measured in local cool-core systems, we infer that the bulk of the mass excess was already in place at z=1, when the age of the Universe was about half of what it is today. Our measures point to an early and intense period of star formation most likely associated with the formation of the BCG. Indeed, in the case of the power-law delay time distribution with slope -1, which reproduces the data of WARPJ1415.1+3612 best, half of the supernovae explode within 0.4Gyr of the formation of the BCG. Finally, while for local cool-core clusters the Fe distribution is broader than the near-infrared light distribution of the BCG, in WARPJ1415.1+3612 the two distributions are consistent, indicating that the process responsible for broadening the Fe distribution in local systems has not yet started in this distant cluster.
