### Large-scale structure from 2dFGRS

### Results from the 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey

John Peacock IAU 216 Sydney July 2003

The distribution of the galaxies

1930s:

Hubble proves galaxies have a non-random distribution

1950s:

Shane & Wirtanen spend 10 years counting 1000,000 galaxies by eye

- filamentary patterns?

Target: 250,000 redshifts to B<19.45 (median z = 0.11)

250 nights AAT 4m time

2dFGRS input catalogue

- Galaxies: bJ 19.45 from revised APM
- Total area on sky ~ 2000 deg2
- 250,000 galaxies in total, 93% sampling rate
- Mean redshift <z> ~ 0.1, almost all with z < 0.3

2dFGRS geometry

2dFGRS Redshift distribution

- N(z) Still shows significant clustering at z < 0.1
- The median redshift of the survey is <z> = 0.11
- Almost all objects have z < 0.3.

* Horizon at zeq : 16 (Wmh2)-1 Mpc (observe Wmh)

* Free-stream length : 80 (M/eV)-1 Mpc (Wm h2 = M / 93.5 eV)

* Acoustic horizon : sound speed < c/31/2

* Silk damping

M sets damping scale - reduced power rather than cutoff if DM is mixed

Generally assume adiabatic

2dFGRS power-spectrum results

Dimensionless power:

d (fractional variance in density) / d ln k

Percival et al. MNRAS 327, 1279 (2001)

Model fits: Feb 2001 vs ‘final’

Wmh = 0.20 ± 0.03

Baryon fraction = 0.15 ± 0.07

Wmh = 0.18 ± 0.02

Baryon fraction = 0.17 ± 0.06

if n = 1: or Wmh = 0.18 e1.3(n-1)

Conclusions from P(k)

- Lack of oscillations. Must have collisionless component
- CDM models work
- Low density if n=1 and h=0.7 apply
- possibilities for error:
- Isocurvature?
- W=1 plus extra ‘radiation’?
- Massive neutrinos?
- Scale-dependent bias? (assumed dgalsdmass)

Photometric recalibration

Start with SuperCosmos UKST scans

SDSS overlap in 33 equatorial plates: rms D = 0.09 mag ( = D SDSS-MGC )

Force uniform optical and opt-2MASS colours: rms linearity and ZP corrections 1.4% and 0.15 mag

Calibration good to <1% and <0.03 mag

recalibrate APM (rms 0.14 mag)

2dFGRS in COLOUR

passive

R magnitudes from

SuperCosmos

active

Rest-frame colour gives same information as spectral type, h, but to higher z

Power spectrum and galaxy type

shape independent of galaxy type within error on spectrum

Relation to CMB results

curvature

baryons

total density

Combining LSS & CMB breaks degeneracies:

LSS measures Wmh only if power index n is known

CMB measures n and Wmh3 (only if curvature is known)

2dFGRS + CMB: Flatness

CMB alone has a geometrical degeneracy: large curvature is not ruled out

Adding 2dFGRS power spectrum forces flatness:

| 1 - Wtot | < 0.04

Efstathiou et al. MNRAS 330, L29 (2002)

Detailed constraints for flat models(CMB + 2dFGRS only: no priors)

Preferred model is scalar-dominated and very nearly scale-invariant

Percival et al. MNRAS 337, 1068 (2002)

likelihood contours pre-WMAP + 2dFGRS 147024 gals

scalar only, flat models

likelihood contours post-WMAP + 2dFGRS 147024 gals

scalar only, flat models

- WMAP reduces errors by factor 1.5 to 2

likelihood contours post-WMAP + 2dFGRS 213947gals

scalar only, flat models

Vacuum equation of state (P = w rc2)

w shifts present horizon, so different Wm needed to keep CMB peak location for given h

w < - 0.54

similar limit from Supernovae: w < - 0.8 overall

2dFGRS

Extra relativistic components?

Matter-radiation horizon scale depends on matter density (Wmh2) and relativistic density (=1.68 rCMB for 3 light neutrinos).

Suppose rrel = X (1.68 rCMB ) so apparent Wmh = Wmh X-1/2 and Wm=1 h=0.5 works if X=8

But extra radiation affects CMB too. Maintaining peak location needs h=0.5X1/2 if Wm=1

If w=-1, 2dFGRS+CMB measureh X-1/2 = 0.71 +- 5% with HST h = 0.72 +- 11%, hence

1.68X = 1.70 +- 0.24 (3.1 +- 1.1 neutrinos)

Summary

- >10 Mpc clustering in good accord with LCDM
- power spectrum favours Wm h= 0.18 & 17% baryons

- CMB + 2dFGRS implies flatness
- CMB + Flatness measures Wm h3.4 = 0.078
- hence h = 0.71 ± 5%, Wm = 0.26 ± 0.04

- No evidence for tilt (n = 0.96 +- 0.04) or tensors
- But large tensor fractions not yet strongly excluded

- Neutrino mass <0.6 eV if Wm =1 excluded
- w < - 0.54 by adding HST data on h (agrees with SN)
- Boosted relativistic density cannot save Wm =1
- Neutrino background detected if w = -1
