Abstract

Recent redshift surveys of galaxies (e.g. the Center for Astrophysics Survey (CfA)), revealed that bright galaxies are distributed in sheet-like structures which surround large voids. Still under debate is the question whether all galaxies follow such a distribution or if less luminous galaxies are more equally distributed. Given the limitation of the actual surveys, the observed emptiness of the voids may be a result of observational bias.
