Voids are a prominent feature of the galaxy distribution but their quantitative study is hindered by the lack of a precise definition of what co nstitutes a void. Here we propose a definition of voids in point distributions t hat uses methods of discrete stochastic geometry, in particular, Delaunay and Voronoi tessellations, and we construct a new void-finder. We then apply the void-find er to scaling point distributions. First, we find the voids of pure fractal s with a transition to… CONTINUE READING
