AbstractWe have studied the mass distributions in the bright E0 galaxy NGC 1407 and its associated group by analyzing Chandra and ROSAT data. To probe the stellar mass distribution, we calculated the stellar mass-to-light ratios by comparing the observed line-strength indices and multicolor photometric data with different stellar synthesis models. We find that the gas is single phase, with a temperature of similar or equal to 0.7 keV within 1R(e). Outside 1Re, the gas temperature increases quickly outward to > 1 keV, indicating its group origin. We reveal that the X-ray surface brightness profile shows a central excess in the innermost region, and on both the total mass and dark matter profiles there is a flattened feature at about less than or similar to 1R(e), where the gas temperature increases rapidly. This may be a mark of the boundary between the galaxy and group halos. The total mass and dark matter distributions within 0.85R(e) are cuspy and can be approximated by power-law profiles with indices of similar or equal to 2, which are marginally consistent with the generalized NFW profiles with zeta = 2. The mass in outer regions can be well fitted by a single NFW profile, and the derived concentration parameter c (18.6 +/- 1.5) is larger than the 68% upper limit for a halo at z = 0 with the given M-vir. We find that the NGC 1407 group has a baryon-dominated core, while the mass in the > 1R(e) region is dominated by dark matter. At the virial radius r(200) 572 +/- 118 kpc, the inferred mass andmass-to-light ratio are M-200 2.20 +/- 0.42; 10(13) M circle dot and M-vir/L-B 311 +/- 60 M circle dot/L-B, circle dot, respectively, showing that the NGC 1407 group is an extremely dark system, similar to many clusters of galaxies.
