Optical and X-ray clusters as tracers of the supercluster-void network. III. Distribution of Abell and APM clusters

Abstract:

We present a comparison of how well the large-scale structure of the universe is traced by clusters from the Abell catalog and from the Automated Plate Measuring Facility (APM). We investigate selection functions for both cluster catalogs, using samples of all clusters (including clusters with estimated redshifts) and samples of clusters with measured redshifts. We present a catalog of superclusters of galaxies, based on APM clusters up to a redshift Zlim = 0.13. We find that the distribution...
