In this paper we present a clustering analysis of quasi-stellar objects (QSOs) using over 20 000 objects from the final catalogue of the 2dF QSO Redshift Survey (2QZ), measuring the redshift-space two-point correlation function, ξ(s). When averaged over the redshift range 0.3 < z < 2.2 we find that ξ(s) is flat on small scales, steepening on scales above ∼25 h -1 Mpc. In a WMAP/2dF cosmology (Ω m = 0.27, Ω A = 0.73) we find a best-fitting power law with so = 5.48 +0.42 -0.48 h -1 Mpc and γ = 1… 
The 2dF-SDSS LRG and QSO Survey: the LRG 2-point correlation function and redshift-space distortions
We present a clustering analysis of luminous red galaxies (LRGs) using nearly 9000 objects from the final, three-year catalogue of the 2dF-SDSS LRG and QSO (2SLAQ) Survey. We measure the
