  • 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… CONTINUE READING
