A hierarchy of voids : Much ado about nothing

  title={A hierarchy of voids : Much ado about nothing},
  author={Ravi K. Sheth and Rien van de Weygaert},
We present a model for the distribution of void sizes and its evolution in the context of hierarchical scenarios of gravitational structure formation. We find that at any cosmic epoch the voids have a size distribution which is well-peaked about a characteristic void size which evolves self-similarly in time. This is in distinct contrast to the distribution of virialized halo masses which does not have a small-scale cut-off. In our model, the fate of voids is ruled by two processes. The first… CONTINUE READING
