Clustering in the VIRMOS survey: Expected cosmic errors

Abstract:
We predict the errors on counts-in-cells statistics measured in the future VIRMOS survey. Several effects are included, such as variation of clustering, biasing, and geometry. Most importantly for the survey strategy, sparse sampling appears to have no particular advantage in this case, especially for higher order statistics at high redshift. The predicted accuracy is a few percent for the variance, and about 10 percent for the skewness at z = 1 in a small dynamic range around 1 h(-1) Mpc.
