[4.12] Clustering of faint galaxies in the Caltech Survey

D.W. Hogg (IAS), J.G. Cohen, R.D. Blandford (Caltech)

The clustering properties of faint galaxies in the two complete fields of the Caltech Faint Galaxy Redshift Survey are described. The survey consists of two areas: One, centered on the Hubble Deep Field, is a circular field ~ 8 arcmin in diameter containing ~600 galaxies with redshifts, and the other consists of a set of ~7\times 7 arcmin2 fields which sparsely sample a square degree and contain another ~700 galaxies with redshifts. The (proper) clustering length at redshifts around 0.6 is found to be shorter than in the local Universe, in agreement with other surveys. Other measures and properties of the clustering are discussed.
