According to the cosmological principle, Universal large-scale structure is homogeneous and isotropic. The observable Universe, however, shows complex structures even on very large scales. The recent discoveries of structures significantly exceeding the transition scale of 370 Mpc pose a challenge to the cosmological principle. We report here the discovery of the largest regular formation in the observable Universe; a ring with a diameter of 1720 Mpc, displayed by 9 gamma ray bursts (GRBs… Expand

Relationship between the large scale structure of the universe and spatial distribution of GRBs
We studied the distribution of star-forming galaxies in the classical Millenium Simulation Springer et al. [1] and the Horizon Runs Kim et al. [2] databases. DeLucia and Blaizot [3] used aExpand

Abstract The Cosmological Principle claims that in the large scale average the visible parts of the universe are isotropic and homogeneous. In year 1998 the author, together with his two colleagues,Expand
The Excess Density of Field Galaxies near z ~ 0.56 around the Gamma-Ray Burst GRB021004 Position
We test for reliability any signatures of field galaxies clustering in the GRB021004 line of sight. The first signature is the GRB021004 field photometric redshifts distribution based on the 6-mExpand
Spatial distribution of GRBs and large scale structure of the Universe
Abstract We studied the space distribution of the starburst galaxies from Millennium XXL database at z = 0.82. We examined the starburst distribution in the classical Millennium I (De Lucia et al.Expand
An Oppositeness in the Cosmology: Distribution of the Gamma-Ray Bursts and the Cosmological Principle
The Cosmological Principle is the assumption that the universe is spatially homogeneous and isotropic in the large-scale average. In year 1998 the author, together with his two colleagues, has shownExpand
The Phenomenon of Life in the Fractal Universe: The Metagalactic Hotbeds of Life Have neither Past nor Future
This article is based on the author’s book “The hypothesis of the fractal Universe: Background. Foundations. Twenty-four consequences” (in Russian: Мoscow, URSS, 2018, bibl. 428). The cosmicExpand
Neutrino Star Cosmology
The ΛCDM model successfully models the expansion of matter in the universe with an expansion of the underlying metric. However, it does not address the physical origin of the big bang and darkExpand
Scalar and vector perturbations in a universe with discrete and continuous matter sources
We study a universe filled with dust-like matter in the form of discrete inhomogeneities (e.g., galaxies and their groups and clusters) and two sets of perfect fluids with linear and nonlinearExpand
Global alignments of parsec-scale AGN radio jets and their polarization planes
A number of works reported on the existence of a large scale alignment of the polarization plane of extragalactic sources as well as the alignment of radio-sources structural axes. However, bothExpand
First-order cosmological perturbations engendered by point-like masses: all scales covered
In the framework of the concordance cosmological model the first-order scalar and vector perturbations of the homogeneous background are derived without any supple- mentary approximations in additionExpand


A 120-Mpc periodicity in the three-dimensional distribution of galaxy superclusters
ACCORDING to the favoured models for the formation of large-scale structure in the Universe (in which the dynamics of the Universe is dominated by cold dark matter), the distribution of galaxies andExpand
The Challenge of the Largest Structures in the Universe to Cosmology
Large galaxy redshift surveys have long been used to constrain cosmological models and structure formation scenarios. In particular, the largest structures discovered observationally are thought toExpand
Possible structure in the GRB sky distribution at redshift two

A structure in the early Universe at z ∼ 1.3 that exceeds the homogeneity scale of the R-W concordance cosmology
A Large Quasar Group (LQG) of particularly large size and high membership has been identified in the DR7QSO catalogue of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. It has characteristic size (volume 1/3 ) � 500Expand
Theory of adhesion for the large-scale structure of the Universe
At present we see the large-scale distribution of matter in the Universe primarily as clusters and superclusters of galaxies, with giant voids between them1,2. Understanding the origin and evolutionExpand
Large-Scale Structure at z = 1.2 Outlined by Mg II Absorbers*
The largest known structure in the high-redshift universe is mapped by at least 18 quasars and spans ~5° × 25 on the sky, with a quasar spatial overdensity of 6-10 times above the mean. This largeExpand
Large Scale Structure in the SDSS Galaxy Survey
The Large Scale Structure in the galaxy distribution is investigated using Data Release 1 of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. Using the Minimal Spanning Tree technique we have extracted sets ofExpand
Simulations of the formation, evolution and clustering of galaxies and quasars
It is shown that baryon-induced features in the initial conditions of the Universe are reflected in distorted form in the low-redshift galaxy distribution, an effect that can be used to constrain the nature of dark energy with future generations of observational surveys of galaxies. Expand
The scale of homogeneity of the galaxy distribution in SDSS DR6
The assumption that the Universe, on sufficiently large scales, is homogeneous and isotropic is crucial to our current understanding of cosmology. In this Letter, we test if the observed galaxyExpand
Scaling relations for galaxy clusters in the Millennium-XXL simulation
