Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 310)


Redshift surveys of galaxies are an important tool for studying the large-scale distribution and motion of luminous matter. The shape and size of the survey volume, the sampling procedure, the number density of objects, and the redshift error characterize the power of a survey.
