HIGHER-ORDER STATISTICS FROM THE APM GALAXY SURVEY

Abstract:

We apply a new statistics, the factorial moment correlators, to density maps obtained from the APM survey The resulting correlators are all proportional to the two-point correlation function, substantially amplified with an amplification nearly exponential with the total rank of the correlators. This confirms the validity of the hierarchical clustering assumption on the dynamic range examined, corresponding to 0.5-50 h-1 Mpc in three-dimensional space. The Kirkwood superposition with loop ter...
