Session 116 - Large Scale Structure.
Oral session, Thursday, January 16
We employ a percolation technique developed for pointwise distributions to analyze two-dimensional projections of the three northern and three southern slices in the Las Campanas Redshift Survey. We track the growth of the largest cluster as a topological indicator, and report an unambiguous signal indicating a connected topology which in two dimensions is indicative of a filamentary distribution. Poisson distributions are used as standard of comparison in the topological assessment.
