The 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey (2dFGRS) has produced a three-dimensional map of the distribution of 221,000 galaxies covering 5% of the sky and reaching out to a redshift z=0.3. This is first map of the large-scale structure in the local Universe to probe a statistically representative volume, and provides direct evidence that the large-scale structure of the Universe grew through gravitational instability. Measurements of the correlation function and power spectrum of the galaxy distribution… Expand

Measuring our Universe from Galaxy Redshift Surveys
Several methodologies of using galaxy redshift surveys as cosmological probes are described, the recent results from the existing surveys are summarized, and the views on the future of red shift surveys in the era of precision cosmology are presented. Expand
Constraining fundamental physics with cosmology
It is shown in three examples that future cosmological data may allow us to constrain fundamental physics in interesting ways. The first example illustrates that correlations in the polarization ofExpand
Quantum statistical entropy and minimal length of 5D Ricci-flat black string with generalized uncertainty principle
In this paper, we study the quantum statistical entropy in a 5D Ricci-flat black string solution, which contains a 4D Schwarzschild-de Sitter black hole on the brane, by using the improved thin-layerExpand
The Development of Two-Phase Xenon Dark Matter Detectors
The nature of dark matter remains one of the great unsolved mysteries of modern physics. The existence of dark matter has been inferred from its gravitational interactions and is strongly supportedExpand
