Statistical Challenges in Modern Astronomy by Martha P. Haynes (auth.), Eric D. Feigelson, G. Jogesh Babu

By Martha P. Haynes (auth.), Eric D. Feigelson, G. Jogesh Babu (eds.)

Modern astronomy has been characterised via an incredible development in facts acquisition - from new applied sciences in telescopes, detectors, and computation. you could now assemble catalogs of tens or hundreds of thousands of thousands of stars or galaxies and databases from satellite-based observations are attaining terabit proportions. This wealth of knowledge offers upward push to statistical demanding situations now not formerly encountered in astronomy. This booklet is the results of a workshop held at Pennsylvania kingdom collage in August 1991 that introduced jointly prime astronomers and statisticians to contemplate statistical demanding situations encountered in glossy astronomical learn. The chapters have all been completely revised within the gentle of the discussions on the convention, and a few of the full of life dialogue is recorded right here as well.

Barrow ABSTRACT A brief introduction is given to some statistical questions that arise in the study of galaxy clustering in the universe. Topics include observational surveys of galaxy clustering, the origins of clustering in cosmological models, galaxy correlation functions, double Poisson models, Voronoi tessellations, minimal spanning trees, and Saslaw's distribution function.
