Session 6: Cosmology and Relativity

Title: Cosmological Implications from Supercluster Shape Statistics.
Author(s): V. Kolokotronis, S. Basilakos, M. Plionis (Oral)

We investigate supercluster shape properties using all sky optical cluster data (Abell + AC0), and a new definition of shape based on differential geometry. We quantify all possible selection biases of the catalogues and compare the morphological features of the real data with those expected from  large n-body simulations.
