How filaments of galaxies are woven into the cosmic web

  title={How filaments of galaxies are woven into the cosmic web},
  author={J. Richard Bond and Lev Kofman and Dmitry Pogosyan},
LARGE-SCALE structure in the distribution of galaxies is thought to have evolved through gravitational instabilities from small density fluctuations in the (largely homogeneous) early Universe. This structure of galaxies consists of rich and poor clusters, connected by filaments and sheets, with regions largely devoid of galaxies (voids) in between1. Numerical simulations of the growth of initial density fluctuations through a nonlinear regime, motivated by the likely physics of the early… CONTINUE READING
