Abstract

Two surprising facts of fundamental importance for understanding the large scale structure of the universe have become apparent in the last few years. The first is that most of the mass in the universe is invisible, and the matter it represents may not even be composed of baryons and leptons. The second fact is that on large scales, galaxies are distributed in a network of thick, flattened or filamentary structures, called superclusters, separated by vast voids.
