# Measuring cosmological parameters with the SDSS QSO spatial power spectrum analysis to test the cosmological principle

@article{Yamamoto2003MeasuringCP, title={Measuring cosmological parameters with the SDSS QSO spatial power spectrum analysis to test the cosmological principle}, author={Kazuhiro Yamamoto}, journal={Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society}, year={2003}, volume={341}, pages={1199-1204} }

In this paper we emphasize the importance of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) quasi-stellar object (QSO) clustering statistics as a unique probe of the Universe. Because the complete SDSS QSO sample covers a quarter of the observable Universe, cosmological parameters estimated from the clustering statistics have an implication as a test of the cosmological principle, by comparing with those from local galaxies and other cosmological observations. Using an analytical approach to the power…
