  • The large-scale structure of the universe is a complex web of clusters, filaments, and voids. Its properties are informed by galaxy redshift surveys and measurements of peculiar velocities. Wiener filter reconstructions recover three-dimensional velocity and total density fields. The richness of the elements of our neighborhood is revealed with sophisticated visualization tools. A key component of this paper is an accompanying movie which can be viewed and downloaded at… CONTINUE READING
