Introduction to SDSS LRGs

Eisenstein et al. 2001

  • SDSS uses color to target luminous, early-type galaxies at 0.2<z<0.5.

    • Fainter than MAIN (r<19.5)

    • About 15/sq deg

    • Excellent redshift success rate

  • Science Goals:

    • Clustering on largest scales

    • Galaxy clusters to z~0.5

    • Evolution of massive galaxies

Large scale correlation

Acoustic series in P(k) becomes a single peak in x(r)!

Pure CDM model has no peak.
