Power spectrum analysis of Redshift surveys

Abstract:

This thesis describes a study of the clustering properties of galaxies and clusters of galaxies as measured by the power spectrum (P(k)) and the counts in cells statistic. The samples used are the optical Stromlo-APM galaxy survey, the APM cluster survey and the IRAS 1.2Jy, QDOT and PSCz surveys. Throughout, N-body simulations, for a variety of cosmological models, are used to test methods and to supplement analytic error estimates.

For the Stromlo-APM sample the amplitude of the po...
