Detecting the large-scale structure of the Universe based on the galaxy distribution and characterising its components is of fundamental importance in astrophysics but is also a difficult task to achieve. Wide-area spectroscopic redshift surveys are required to accurately measure galaxy positions in space that also need to cover large areas of the sky. It is also difficult to create algorithms that can extract cosmic web structures (e.g. filaments). Moreover, these detections will be affected… 
Properties of gas phases around cosmic filaments at z = 0 in the IllustrisTNG simulation
We present the study of gas phases around cosmic-web filaments detected in the TNG300-1 hydro-dynamical simulation at redshift z = 0. We separate the gas into five different phases according to
An EAGLE view of the missing baryons
Context. A significant fraction of the predicted baryons remain undetected in the local Universe. We adopted the common assumption that a large fraction of the missing baryons correspond to the hot
the threehundred: the structure and properties of cosmic filaments in the outskirts of galaxy clusters
Galaxy cluster outskirts are described by complex velocity fields induced by diffuse material collapsing towards filaments, gas, and galaxies falling into clusters, and gas shock processes
First detection of stacked X-ray emission from cosmic web filaments
We report the first statistical detection of X-ray emission from cosmic web filaments in ROSAT data. We selected 15 165 filaments at 0.2 <  z <  0.6 ranging from 30 Mpc to 100 Mpc in length,
Multiscale cosmic web detachments, connectivity, and preprocessing in the supercluster SCl A2142 cocoon
Context.Superclusters of galaxies and their surrounding low-density regions (cocoons) represent dynamically evolving environments in which galaxies and their systems form and evolve. While
An optimized Ly α forest inversion tool based on a quantitative comparison of existing reconstruction methods
We present a same-level comparison of the most prominent inversion methods for the reconstruction of the matter density field in the quasi-linear regime from the Ly$\alpha$ forest flux. Moreover, we
Ridges in the Dark Energy Survey for cosmic trough identification
Cosmic voids and their corresponding redshift-aggregated projections of mass densities, known as troughs, play an important role in our attempt to model the large-scale structure of the Universe.
Populations of filaments from the distribution of galaxies in numerical simulations
We present a statistical study of the filamentary structures of the cosmic web in the large hydro-dynamical simulations Illustris-TNG, Illustris, and Magneticum at redshiftz = 0. We focus on the


Spectroscopic Target Selection in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey: The Main Galaxy Sample
We describe the algorithm that selects the main sample of galaxies for spectroscopy in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) from the photometric data obtained by the imaging survey. Galaxy photometric
SDSS-III Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey Data Release 12: galaxy target selection and large-scale structure catalogues
The Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS), part of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) III project, has provided the largest survey of galaxy redshifts available to date, in terms of both

Like a spider in its web: a study of the large-scale structure around the Coma cluster
The Cosmic Web is a complex network of filaments, walls, and voids that represent the largest structures in the Universe. In this network, which is the direct result of structure formation, galaxy
Flux- and volume-limited groups/clusters for the SDSS galaxies: catalogues and mass estimation
We provide flux-limited and volume-limited galaxy group and cluster catalogues, based on the spectroscopic sample of the SDSS data release 10 galaxies. We used a modified friends-of-friends (FoF)
Detecting filamentary pattern in the cosmic web: a catalogue of filaments for the SDSS
The main feature of the spatial large-scale galaxy distribution is its intricate network of galaxy filaments. This network is spanned by the galaxy locations that can be interpreted as a
The persistent cosmic web and its filamentary structure I: Theory and implementation
The method is interesting as it allows for a robust quantification of the topological properties of a discrete distribution in terms of Betti numbers or Euler characteristics, without having to resort to smoothing or having to define a particular scale.

We present the first quantitative detection of large-scale filamentary structure at z ≃ 0.7 in the large cosmological volume probed by the VIMOS Public Extragalactic Redshift Survey (VIPERS). We use
PhotoWeb redshift: boosting photometric redshift accuracy with large spectroscopic surveys
Improving distance measurements in large imaging surveys is a major challenge to better reveal the distribution of galaxies on a large scale and to link galaxy properties with their environments. As
