Abstract: Here we present a working example of a Basic SkyNode serving theoretical data. The data is taken from the Simulated Cluster Archive (SCA), a set of simulated X-ray clusters, where each cluster was computed using four different physics models. The LCA Theory SkyNode (LCATheory) tables contain columns of the integrated physical properties of the clusters at various redshifts. The ease of setting up a Theory SkyNode is an important result, because it represents a clear way to present theory data to the Virtual Observatory. Also, our Theory SkyNode provides a prototype for additional simulated object catalogs, which will be created from other simulations by our group, and hopefully others.
