Cluster Survey

In this method we measure the cluster redshift distribution and cluster power spectrum. Cluster mass estimates are measured indirectly using the bias of the cluster power spectrum, and also directly from SZE, weak lensing, and cluster galaxy observables. To accomplish our goals, we must be able to locate and measure the redshift of clusters of galaxies to z ~ 1, because this is the expected extent of the coordinated South Pole Telescope [3] SZE (Sunyaev-Zel'dovich Effect) cluster survey.
