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

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.
