Clustering of Galaxies in the Hubble Deep Field

Abstract

We compute the two-point angular correlation function w(θ) for a sample of ∼ 1700 galaxies to a magnitude-limit equivalent to R ∼ 29.5 using a catalog derived from the Hubble Deep Field images. A non zero value of w(θ) is measured down to R = 29.0. The amplitude of w(θ) at the bright magnitude limit (R ∼ 26) is consistent with previous ground-based… (More)
