Galaxy and mass assembly (GAMA): The large-scale structure of galaxies and comparison to mock universes (2013)
Journal Article
Alpaslan, M., Robotham, A. S. G., Driver, S., Norberg, P., Baldry, I., Bauer, A. E., …Pimbblet, K. (2014). Galaxy and mass assembly (GAMA): The large-scale structure of galaxies and comparison to mock universes. Monthly notices, containing papers, abstracts of papers, and reports of the proceedings of the Society, 438(1), 177-194. https://doi.org/10.1093/mnras/stt2136

From a volume-limited sample of 45 542 galaxies and 6000 groups with z ≤ 0.213, we use an adapted minimal spanning tree algorithm to identify and classify large-scale structures within the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) survey. Using galaxy groups,... Read More about Galaxy and mass assembly (GAMA): The large-scale structure of galaxies and comparison to mock universes.

Galaxy And Mass Assembly: resolving the role of environment in galaxy evolution (2013)
Journal Article

Monthly notices, containing papers, abstracts of papers, and reports of the proceedings of the Society, 435(4), 2903-2917. https://doi.org/10.1093/mnras/stt1489

We present observations of 18 galaxies from the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) survey made with the SPIRAL optical integral field unit (IFU) on the Anglo-Australian Telescope. The galaxies are selected to have a narrow range in stellar mass (6 × 10... Read More about Galaxy And Mass Assembly: resolving the role of environment in galaxy evolution.

Galaxy and mass assembly (GAMA): Witnessing the assembly of the cluster Abell 1882 (2013)
Journal Article
Owers, M. S., Baldry, I. K., Bauer, A. E., Bland-Hawthorn, J., Brown, M. J. I., Cluver, M. E., …Robotham, A. S. G. (2013). Galaxy and mass assembly (GAMA): Witnessing the assembly of the cluster Abell 1882. The Astrophysical journal, 772(2), 104. https://doi.org/10.1088/0004-637x/772/2/104

We present a combined optical and X-ray analysis of the rich cluster ABELL 1882 (A1882) with the aim of identifying merging substructure and understanding the recent assembly history of this system. Our optical data consist of spectra drawn from the... Read More about Galaxy and mass assembly (GAMA): Witnessing the assembly of the cluster Abell 1882.

The WiggleZ Dark Energy Survey: constraining galaxy bias and cosmic growth with three-point correlation functions (2013)
Journal Article
Marín, F. A., Blake, C., Poole, G. B., McBride, C. K., Brough, S., Colless, M., …Yee, H. K. C. (2013). The WiggleZ Dark Energy Survey: constraining galaxy bias and cosmic growth with three-point correlation functions. Monthly notices, containing papers, abstracts of papers, and reports of the proceedings of the Society, 432(4), 2654-2668. https://doi.org/10.1093/mnras/stt520

Higher order statistics are a useful and complementary tool for measuring the clustering of galaxies, containing information on the non-Gaussian evolution and morphology of large-scale structure in the Universe. In this work we present measurements o... Read More about The WiggleZ Dark Energy Survey: constraining galaxy bias and cosmic growth with three-point correlation functions.
