Recent Advances in Large-scale Structure Statistics

  • Vicent J. Martínez
Conference paper

Abstract

I review the most recent redshift surveys used to probe the large scale structure of the Universe. Then I provide an overview of some of the statistical tools used to describe the galaxy distribution, trying to connect these measures with some of the statistics used in the mainstream of spatial statistics. Special topics include intensity functions, topology, and second-order statistics (2-point correlation function, K-function).

Keywords

Point Process Intensity Function Galaxy Cluster Statistical Challenge Elliptical Galaxy 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
