We present the results of a study of the morphology and galaxy content of the Sloan Great Wall (SGW), the richest galaxy system in the nearby universe. We use the luminosity density field to determine superclusters in the SGW, and the fourth Minkowski functional V{sub 3} and the morphological signature (the K{sub 1}-K{sub 2} shapefinder curve) to show the different morphologies of the SGW, from a single filament to a multibranching, clumpy planar system. We show that the richest supercluster in… 
BOSS Great Wall: morphology, luminosity, and mass
Context. Galaxy superclusters are the largest systems in the Universe that can give us information about the formation and evolution of the cosmic web. Aims. We study the morphology of the
SDSS superclusters: morphology and galaxy content
Context. Understanding the formation, evolution and present-day properties of the cosmic web and objects forming it is an important task in cosmology. Aims. We compare the galaxy populations in
Sloan Great Wall as a complex of superclusters with collapsing cores
In the cosmic web, galaxy superclusters or their high-density cores are the largest objects that may collapse at present or during the future evolution. We study the dynamical state and possible
Unusual A2142 supercluster with a collapsing core: distribution of light and mass
We study the distribution, masses, and dynamical properties of galaxy groups in the A2142 supercluster. We analyse the global luminosity density distribution in the supercluster and divide the
Characteristic density contrasts in the evolution of superclusters. The case of A2142 supercluster
The formation and evolution of the cosmic web in which galaxy superclusters are the largest relatively isolated objects is governed by a gravitational attraction of dark matter and antigravity of
Brightest group galaxies and the large-scale environment
We study the dependence of the properties of group galaxies on the surrounding large‐scale environment, using SDSS-DR7 data. Galaxies are ranked according to their luminosity within each group and
Discovery of a massive supercluster system at z ~ 0.47
Aims. Superclusters are the largest relatively isolated systems in the cosmic web. Using the SDSS BOSS survey we search for the largest superclusters in the redshift range 0.43 < z < 0.71. Methods.
Global structure of the local universe according to 2MRS survey
We report the results of a statistical analysis of the space distribution of galaxies of the 2MRS catalog, which contains redshifts of 43533 galaxies of the 2MASS all-sky IR survey. Because of the
The Corona Borealis supercluster: connectivity, collapse, and evolution
We present a study of the Corona Borealis (CB) supercluster. We determined the high-density cores of the CB and the richest galaxy clusters in them, and studied their dynamical state and galaxy
How unusual are the Shapley Supercluster and the Sloan Great Wall
We show that extreme value statistics are useful for studying the largest structures in the Universe by using them to assess the significance of two of the most dramatic structures in the local


The Sloan great wall. Rich clusters
Aims. We present the results of the study of the substructure and ga laxy content of ten rich clusters of galaxies in three different superclusters of the Sloan Great Wall, the richest nearby sy stem
Toward Understanding Rich Superclusters
We present a morphological study of the two richest superclusters from the 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey (SCL126, the Sloan Great Wall, and SCL9, the Sculptor supercluster). We use Minkowski
The richest superclusters I. Morphology
Context. Superclusters are the largest systems in the Universe to give us information about the formation and evolution of structures in the very early Universe. Our present series of papers is

We present the results of a redshift survey of intercluster galaxies in the central region of the Shapley Concentration supercluster, aimed at determining the distribution of galaxies in between

Crawling the cosmic network: exploring the morphology of structure in the galaxy distribution
Although coherent large-scale structures such as filaments and walls are apparent to the eye in galaxy redshift surveys, they have so far proven difficult to characterize with computer algorithms.
Red-sequence galaxies with young stars and dust: the cluster Abell 901/902 seen with COMBO-17
We report the discovery of a rich component of dusty star-forming galaxies contaminating the red-sequence in the supercluster system comprising Abell 901a, 901b and A902 at redshift ~0.17. These
How filaments of galaxies are woven into the cosmic web
LARGE-SCALE structure in the distribution of galaxies is thought to have evolved through gravitational instabilities from small density fluctuations in the (largely homogeneous) early Universe. This
