The unprecedented sky coverage and photometric uniformity of the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) provides a rich resource for obtaining a detailed understanding of the galaxies populating our local (z<0.1) Universe. A full characterization of the physical structure of nearby galaxies is essential for theoretical and observational studies of galaxy evolution and structure formation. We have begun a quantified description of the internal structure and morphology of 10,000 bright (10<Ks<11…

The Clustering Dipole of the Local Universe from the Two Micron All Sky Survey

The unprecedented sky coverage and photometric uniformity of the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) provides a rich resource for investigating the galaxies populating the local universe. A full

K-Band Properties of Galaxy Clusters and Groups: Luminosity Function, Radial Distribution, and Halo Occupation Number

We explore the near-infrared (NIR) K-band properties of galaxies within 93 galaxy clusters and groups using data from the Two Micron All Sky Survey. We use X-ray properties of these clusters to

The First Measurements of Galaxy Clustering from Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) Data of the Spitzer First Look Survey

We present the first results of the angular autocorrelation function of the galaxies detected by the Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) instrument in the First Look Survey (FLS) of the Spitzer Space

Fluctuations of K-band galaxy counts

We measure the variance in the distribution of off-plane (|b| > 20 ◦ ) galaxies with mK < 13.5 from the 2MASS K-band survey in circles of diameter between 0.344 ◦ and 57.2 ◦ . The use of a

Spatial Locality of Galaxy Correlation Function in Phase Space: Samples from the 2MASS Extended Source Catalog

We analyze the statistical properties and dynamical implications of galaxy distributions in phase space for samples selected from the 2MASS extended source catalog. The galaxy distribution is
