Beutler, Florian; Blake, Chris; Colless, Matthew; Jones, D Heath; Staveley-Smith, Lister; Campbell, Lachlan; Parker, Quentin A; Saunders, Will; Watson, Fred


In this paper we study the stellar mass dependence of galaxy clustering in the 6dF Galaxy Survey (6dFGS). The near-infrared selection of 6dFGS allows more reliable stellar mass estimates compared to optical bands used in other galaxy surveys. Using the halo occupation distribution model, we investigate the trend of dark matter halo mass and satellite fraction with stellar mass by measuring the projected correlation function, wp(rp). We find that the typical halo mass (M1) as well as the...[Show more]
