The research project will be focused on the following research activities: 1) Development of algorithms for the analysis of the spatial distribution of galaxies (correlation functions,
power spectra and higher order statistics); 2) application of these algorithms to existing spectroscopic and photometric surveys and to "mock" Euclid surveys.
The research program will be carried out at the Department of Physics, University Roma TRE (http://www.fis.uniroma3.it/) Staff members interested in this research project include: E. Branchini (Department of Physics, University Roma TRE) and R. Scaramella (INAF/Astronomical Observatory of Rome).
