  • We present spectroscopy of binary quasar candidates, with component separations of -->3'' ≤ Δ θ g 3'' ≤ Δ θ u − g χ2color 20). From a sample that is complete on proper scales of -->23.7 h−1 kpc p = 24.0-10.8+16.9, which is 2 σ lower than recent estimates. We argue that our low --> p estimates may indicate redshift evolution in the quasar correlation function from -->z ~ 1.9 to -->z ~ 1.4 on scales of -->Rprop ~ 25 h−1 kpc. The size of this evolution broadly tracks quasar clustering on larger… CONTINUE READING
