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…

In light of recent debates on the existence of a gigaparsec-scale structure traced by gamma-ray bursts, namely the Hercules-Corona Borealis Great Wall (HCBGW), we revisit large-scale homogeneity in

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 a

The clustering of gamma-ray bursts in the Hercules–Corona Borealis Great Wall: the largest structure in the Universe?

The Hercules-Corona Borealis Great Wall is a statistically significant clustering of gamma-ray bursts around redshift 2. Motivated by recent theoretical results indicating that a maximal Universal

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,

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-m

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.

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 shown

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 cosmic

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 dark


In the framework of the concordance cosmological model, the first-order scalar and vector perturbations of the homogeneous background are derived in the weak gravitational field limit without any



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 and


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 to

We have produced a new conformal map of the universe illustrating recent discoveries, ranging from Kuiper Belt objects in the solar system to the galaxies and quasars from the Sloan Digital Sky

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.

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 galaxy
