The cluster of galaxies MS 1512.4+3647 (z=0.372) was observed with Suzaku for 270 ks. Besides the Fe abundance, the abundances of Mg, Si, S, and Ni are separately determined for the first time in a medium redshift cluster (z>0.3). The derived abundance pattern of MS 1512.4+3647 is consistent with those of nearby clusters, suggesting that the system has similar contributions from supernovae (SNe) Ia and SNe II to nearby clusters. The number ratio of SNe II to SNe Ia is $\sim3$. The estimated total numbers of both SNe II and SNe Ia against gas mass indicate similar correlation with those for the nearby clusters. The abundance results of MS 1512.4+3647 is consistent with the standard scenario that the SN II rate history roughly follows the star-formation history which has a peak at 1View original:
