2MASS Constraints on the Local Large-Scale Structure: A Challenge to LCDM?

Preprint English OPEN
Frith, W. J.; Shanks, T.; Outram, P. J.;

We investigate the large-scale structure of the local galaxy distribution using the recently completed 2 Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS). First, we determine the K-band number counts over the 4000 sq.deg. APM survey area where evidence for a large-scale `local hole' has p... View more
