Clustering of the Diffuse Infrared Light from the COBE DIRBE maps . III . Power spectrum analysis and excess isotropic component of fluctuations

The cosmic infrared background (CIB) radiation is the cosmic repository for energy release throughout the history of the universe. The spatial fluctuations of the CIB resulting from galaxy clustering are expected to be at least a few percent on scales of a degree, depending on the luminosity and clustering history of the early universe. Using the all-sky… CONTINUE READING
