Modern redshift surveys such as the 2 degree field Galaxy Redshift Survey (2dFGRS) and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) reveal fully 3-dimensional distribution of 10 5 - 6 galaxies over a large cosmological volume ≃ 0.1-1 [h - 1 Gpc] 3 . It is well established that the galaxies in these surveys show strong clustering. To the eye, the galaxies are distributed along sheet-like and/ or filamentary superclusters. The CfA Great Wall, Southern Great Wall and the recently discovered SDSS Great Wall… 
Quantifying cosmic superstructures
The large-scale structure (LSS) found in galaxy redshift surveys and in computer simulations of cosmic structure formation shows a very complex network of galaxy clusters, filaments and sheets around
Multiscale morphology of the galaxy distribution
Many statistical methods have been proposed in the last years for analysing the spatial distribution of galaxies. Very few of them, however, can handle properly the border effects of complex
The three dimensional skeleton: tracing the filamentary structure of the universe
The skeleton formalism aims at extracting and quantifying the filamentary structure of the universe is generalized to 3D density fields; a numerical method for computating a local approximation of
The shape and size distribution of H ii regions near the percolation transition
Using Shapefinders, which are ratios of Minkowski functionals, we study the morphology of neutral hydrogen (H I) density fields, simulated using seminumerical technique (inside-out), at various
Geometry and interaction of structures in homogeneous isotropic turbulence
Abstract A strategy to extract turbulence structures from direct numerical simulation (DNS) data is described along with a systematic analysis of geometry and spatial distribution of the educed
Scale locality of the energy cascade using real space quantities
© 2018 American Physical Society. The classical energy cascade in turbulence as described by Richardson and Kolmogorov is predominantly a conjecture relying on the locality of interactions between
A priori and a posteriori investigations for developing large eddy simulations of multi-species turbulent mixing under high-pressure conditions
A Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) database was created representing mixing of species under high-pressure conditions. The configuration considered is that of a temporally evolving mixing layer. The
Impact of pore structure and morphology on flow and transport characteristics in randomly repacked grains with different angularities
Abstract The flow and transport behaviors in porous media are closely linked to the structure and morphology of the pore space. A fundamental objective of most studies of porous media is to link the
Morphological and statistical features of reaction zones in MILD and premixed combustion
Abstract Direct numerical simulation (DNS) results of turbulent MILD premixed and conventional (undiluted) premixed combustion have been investigated to shed light on the physical aspects of reaction
Physical aspects and modelling of turbulent MILD combustion
Moderate or Intense Low-oxygen Dilution (MILD) combustion is one of combustion technologies which can improve efficiency and reduce emissions simultaneously. This combustion type is characterised by


Froth across the Universe Dynamics and Stochastic Geometry of the Cosmic Foam
Abstract: A review on the properties and dynamical origin and nature of the cosmic foam, the tenuous space-filling frothy network permeating the interior of the Universe. We discuss the properties of
Statistics of the Galaxy Distribution
Statistics of the Galaxy Distribution presents a clear account of what is physically the largest source of data imaginable: the universe itself, and particularly the spatial distribution of its
Large-scale structure in the Universe
A variety of observations constrain models of the origin of large-scale cosmic structures. Enough observational data have accumulated to constrain (and perhaps determine) the power spectrum of
Volumen und Oberfläche
Fur die konvexen Korper gibt es einen elementaren Weg, um den Begriff der Oberflache aus dem einfacheren Begriffe des Volumens heraus zu entwickeln, und in Verfolg dieses Weges gelangt man zu sehr
