  • Context. Cosmic voids are observed in the distribution of galaxies and, to some extent, in the dark matter distribution. If these distributions have fractal geometry, it must be reflected in the geometry of voids; in particular, we expect scaling sizes of voids. However, this scaling is not well demonstrated in galaxy surveys yet. Aims. Our objective is to understand the geometry of cosmic voids and its relation to the geometry of the galaxy and dark-matter distributions. We examine the… CONTINUE READING
