Abstract

The project tackles the issue of discovering Superclusters of galaxies in the form of elliptic virial rings (as a formation approximation).
The project includes identifying the superclusters based on information gathered from telescopes. Using the "photographs", the code identifies a galaxy supercluster, approximates its form as an ellipse and determines the angle of the major axis with respect to the photograph's horizontal axis.
We expect a code which will be able to analyze any kind of data, and will be ready (after tests) around the end of January.
