The Galaxy Luminosity Function and Luminosity Density at Redshift z = 0.1*
Using a catalog of 147,986 galaxy redshifts and fluxes from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), we measure the galaxy luminosity density at z = 0.1 in five optical bandpasses corresponding to theExpand
Detection of the baryon acoustic peak in the large-scale correlation function of SDSS luminous red galaxies
We present the large-scale correlation function measured from a spectroscopic sample of 46,748 luminous red galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. The survey region covers 0.72h −3 Gpc 3 overExpand
The sloan digital sky survey quasar survey: Quasar luminosity function from data release 3
We determine the number counts and z = 0-5 luminosity function for a well-defined, homogeneous sample of quasars from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). We conservatively define the most uniformExpand
Sloan digital sky survey: Early data release
The Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) is an imaging and spectroscopic survey that will eventually cover approximately one-quarter of the celestial sphere and collect spectra of ≈106 galaxies, 100,000Expand
Baryon Acoustic Oscillations in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 7 Galaxy Sample
The spectroscopic Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Data Release 7 (DR7) galaxy sample represents the final set of galaxies observed using the original SDSS target selection criteria. We analyse theExpand
The Luminosity and Color Dependence of the Galaxy Correlation Function
The HOD model fits nicely explain the color dependence of wp(rp) and the cross correlation between red and blue galaxies, and a conditional luminosity function (at fixed halo mass) in which central galaxies lie far above a Schechter function extrapolation of the satellite population. Expand
The fourth data release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
This paper describes the Fourth Data Release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), including all survey-quality data taken through 2004 June. The data release includes five-band photometric dataExpand
We investigate the 21 cm signature that may arise from the intergalactic medium (IGM) prior to the epoch of full reionization (z > 5). In scenarios in which the IGM is reionized by discrete sourcesExpand
Galaxy clustering in early sloan digital sky survey redshift data
We present the first measurements of clustering in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) galaxy redshift survey. Our sample consists of 29,300 galaxies with redshifts 5700 km s-1 ≤ cz ≤ 39,000 km s-1,Expand
