Title

A fractal galaxy distribution in a homogeneous universe ? : letter to the editor

Authors
Published in Astronomy and Astrophysics. 1998, vol. 339, p. L85-L88
Abstract In this letter we present an idea which reconciles a homogeneous and isotropic Friedmann universe with a fractal distribution of galaxies. We use two observational facts: The flat rotation curves of galaxies and the (still debated) fractal distribution of galaxies with fractal dimension [FORMULA]. Our idea can also be interpreted as a redefinition of the notion of bias.
