IAU symposium; v.216


This volume contains 40 papers from a 2003 symposium devoted to maps of the distribution of galaxies and of temperature fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background and what they can tell us about the structure, geometry, and evolution of the universe. With most of the papers reporting on recent experimental and astronomical survey data results, the proceedings are organized into sections on cosmic microwave background and cosmology, formation of large-scale structure, local structure, galaxy evolution and clusters of galaxies, intergalactic medium, the distant universe, and ongoing and future studies.
