The Correlation Function of Optically Selected Galaxy Clusters in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey


We measure the two-point spatial correlation function for clusters selected from the photometric MaxBCG galaxy cluster catalog for the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). We evaluate the correlation function for several cluster samples using different cuts in cluster richness. Fitting the results to power-laws, ξcc(r) = (r/R0) , the estimated correlation… (More)
