This volume documents recent developments that have advanced our understanding of the heating and cooling mechanisms in galaxies and galaxy clusters. Chapters detail results from multi-wavelength observations and advances in numerical hydrodynamical simulations. An additional section covers new research findings on feedback and self-regulatory mechanisms during cosmic structure formation in general and in galaxy formation in particular.Cold fronts were originally interpreted as being the result of subsonic/transonic motions of head-on merging ... 2002), but they do not work well for the increasing number of cold fronts found in clusters that do not show clear merging signs such anbsp;...
