1987ApJ...315L..93T The spatial distribution of dwarf galaxies in the CfA slice of the universe Trinh X. Thuan, J. Richard, III Gott, and Stephen E. Schneider Abstract. A complete (with the the exception of one) redshift sample of 58 galaxies in the Nilson catalog classified as dwarf, irregular, or Magellanic irregular is used to investigate the large-scale clustering properties of these low-surface brightness galaxies in the CfA slice of the universe ({alpha} in the range of 8-17 h, {delta} in the range of 26.5-32.5 deg). It is found that the low-surface brightness dwarf galaxies also lie on the structures delineated by the high-surface brightness normal galaxies and that they do not fill in the voids. This is inconsistent with a class of biased galaxy formation theories which predict that dwarf galaxies should be present everywhere, including the voids. Key words: DWARF GALAXIES, GALACTIC CLUSTERS, GALACTIC EVOLUTION, MAGELLANIC CLOUDS, RED SHIFT, SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION, LUMINOUS INTENSITY, MASS DISTRIBUTION, MORPHOLOGY, UNIVERSE
