[59.04] ERO Clustering in the NDWFS

M.J.I. Brown, A. Dey, B. Jannuzi, T. Lauer (NOAO), G. Tiede (Florida)

The spatial correlation function of Extremely Red Objects has been measured with 0.6 square degrees of the NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey. Photometric redshifts have been used to constrain the ERO redshift distribution and estimate the spatial clustering from the angular correlation function. The clustering of EROs is comparable to that of current epoch early-type galaxies. If most EROs are progenitors of low redshift ellipticals, the spatial correlation function of luminous galaxies undergoes mild evolution at z<1.5.

This research was supported by NOAO which is operated by AURA under a cooperative agreement with the NSF.
