Description of the Bologna team
The Bologna node of the VIPERS collaboration is deeply involved both in the science analyses and in data reduction.
In the scientific context, the Bologna team is equally interested to topics concerning cosmology and large scale structures, and galaxy formation and evolution.
In particular, our expertise ranges from the computation of 2-points correlation functions, redshift distortions, non linear biasing, high order correlation functions and mark statitics, definition of the density field, signatures of primordial non Gaussianities, numerical simulations and analyses of mock samples.
The galaxy evolution subject is covered by our expertise on SED fitting, luminosity and stellar mass functions, measure and analysis of spectral features, post-starburst galaxies, radio properties of galaxies, BALs, dependence of galaxy properties on the environment and comparison to mock samples.
Concerning the data reduction, the Bologna team is responsible for the preparation of a large number of masks and of the redshift measurement of many pointings, thanks to the skill acquired in previous collaborations.
