We analyze the filamentarity in the Las Campanas redshift survey (LCRS) and determine the length scale at which filaments are statistically significant. The largest length scale at which filaments are statistically significant, real objects is between 70 and 80 h-1 Mpc for the LCRS -3° slice. Filamentary features longer than 80 h-1 Mpc, although identified, are not statistically significant; they arise from chance alignments. For the five other LCRS slices, filaments of lengths 50-70 h-1 Mpc…

Using the Filaments in the Las Campanas Redshift Survey to Test the ΛCDM Model
It has recently been established that the filaments seen in the Las Campanas Redshift Survey (LCRS) are statistically significant at scales as large as 70-80 h-1 Mpc in the δ = -3° slice and 50-70
The size of the longest filament in the luminous red galaxy distribution
Filaments are one of the most prominent features visible in the galaxy distribution. Considering the luminous red galaxies in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release Seven (SDSS DR7), we have
Automated detection of filaments in the large-scale structure of the Universe
We present a new method to identify large-scale filaments and apply it to a cosmological simulation. Using positions of haloes above a given mass as node tracers, we look for filaments between them
Statistically significant length-scale of filaments as a robust measure of galaxy distribution
We have used a statistical technique "Shuffle" (Bhavsar & Ling 1988; Bharadwaj, Bhavsar & Sheth 2004) in seven nearly two dimensional strips from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release Six (SDSS
Intercluster filaments in a ΛCDM Universe
The large-scale structure (LSS) in the Universe comprises a complicated filamentary network of matter. We study this network using a high-resolution simulation of structure formation in a A Cold Dark
Tracing the filamentary structure of the galaxy distribution at z∼0.8
We study filamentary structure in the galaxy distribution at z ∼ 0.8 using data from the Deep Extragalactic Evolutionary Probe 2 (DEEP2) Redshift Survey and its evolution to z ∼ 0.1 using data from
Detecting filamentary pattern in the cosmic web: a catalogue of filaments for the SDSS
The main feature of the spatial large-scale galaxy distribution is its intricate network of galaxy filaments. This network is spanned by the galaxy locations that can be interpreted as a
The luminosity, colour and morphology dependence of galaxy filaments in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release Four
We have tested for luminosity, colour and morphology dependence of the degree of filamentarity in seven nearly two-dimensional strips from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release Four .(SDSS DR4).
A two-dimensional analysis of percolation and filamentarity in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release One
We have used the largest cluster statistics and the average filamentarity to quantify respectively the connectivity and the shapes of the patterns seen in the galaxy distribution in two
Exploring star formation using the filaments in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release Five
We have quantified the average filamentarity of the galaxy distribution in seven nearly two-dimensional strips from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release Five (SDSS DR5) using a volume-limited
