  • The number density and correlation function of galaxies are two key quantities to characterize the distribution of the observed galaxy population. High-$z$ spectroscopic surveys, which usually involve complex target selection and are incomplete in redshift sampling, present both opportunities and challenges to measure these quantities reliably in the high-$z$ Universe. Using realistic mock catalogs we show that target selection and redshift incompleteness can lead to significantly biased… CONTINUE READING
