First Results from the 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey

Colless, Matthew

Description

The 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey is a major new initiative to map a representative volume of the universe. The survey makes use of the 2dF multi-fibre spectrograph at the Anglo-Australian Telescope to measure redshifts for over 250000 galaxies brighter than bJ = 19.5 and a further 10000 galaxies brighter than R = 21. The main goals of the survey are to characterize the large-scale structure of the universe and quantify the properties of the galaxy population at low redshifts. This paper describes...[Show more]
