The clustering of massive galaxies at z similar to 1

Abstract:

We use the angular two-point correlation function to estimate the spatial correlation length of radio sources taken from the large-area 1.4 GHz NVSS radio survey. At the median survey redshift of z similar to 1, r(0) is found to be increasing with flux density. This is consistent with a scenario in which powerful (i.e. FRII) radio galaxies probe significantly more massive spatial structures than less powerful radio galaxies. The large spatial correlation length that we derive for FRIIs is rem...
