We measure moments of the galaxy count probability distribution function in the Two-degree Field Galaxy Redshift Survey (2dFGRS). The survey is divided into volume-limited subsamples in order to examine the dependence of the higher-order clustering on galaxy luminosity. We demonstrate the hierarchical scaling of the averaged p-point galaxy correlation functions, ξ̄ p, up to p = 6. The hierarchical amplitudes, S p = S 2S p-1, are approximately independent of the cell radius used to smooth the...[Show more]
