Abstract

We present an analysis of the small-to-intermediate scale clustering of samples of luminous red galaxies (LRGs) from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) and the 2dF-SDSS LRG and QSO Survey (2SLAQ) survey carefully matched to have the same rest-frame colours and luminosity. We study the spatial two-point autocorrelation function in both redshift space [I?(s)] and real space [I?(r)] of a combined sample of over 10 000 LRGs, which represent the most massive galaxies in the universe with stellar masses >1011 h -1 MaS? and space densities a??10-4 h3 Mpc-3.
