  • The Monte-Carlo simulation technique described in Paper I (MacGillivrayet al., 1982b) is used to simulate static properties (positions, magnitudes, orientations and shapes) for galaxies in spherical supercluster ‘cells’ for different galaxy 3-dimensional alignment schemes, and the projected galaxy properties examined. The results may be used to aid the interpretation of the observed geometric properties for galaxies in real supercluster cells.The simulation technique is also used to examine the… CONTINUE READING
