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 the
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 over
The sloan digital sky survey quasar catalog. - V. Seventh data release
We present the fifth edition of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Quasar Catalog, which is based upon the SDSS Seventh Data Release. The catalog, which contains 105,783 spectroscopically confirmed
Spectroscopic Target Selection for the Sloan Digital Sky Survey: The Luminous Red Galaxy Sample
We describe the target selection and resulting properties of a spectroscopic sample of luminous red galaxies (LRGs) from the imaging data of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). These galaxies are
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, 100,000
A MaxBCG catalog of 13,823 galaxy clusters from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
We present a catalog of galaxy clusters selected using the maxBCG red-sequence method from Sloan Digital Sky Survey photometric data. This catalog includes 13,823 clusters with velocity dispersions
Evidence for reionization at z ∼ 6: Detection of a gunn-peterson trough in a z = 6.28 quasar
We present moderate-resolution Keck spectroscopy of quasars at z = 5.82, 5.99, and 6.28, discovered by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). We find that the Ly? absorption in the spectra of these
The Broadband Optical Properties of Galaxies with Redshifts 0.02 < z < 0.22
Using photometry and spectroscopy of 183,487 galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, we present bivariate distributions of pairs of seven galaxy properties: four optical colors, surface
Galaxy Clustering in the Completed SDSS Redshift Survey: The Dependence on Color and Luminosity
We measure the luminosity and color dependence of galaxy clustering in the largest-ever galaxy redshift survey, the main galaxy sample of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Seventh Data Release
