There is empirical evidence that the two-point correlation function of the galaxy point pattern follows for small r reasonably well a power-law expression . This paper analyses the estimation procedure for γ and suggests an estimator for which is well suited for the estimation of γ.
Key words: large-scale structure of Universe / cosmology: theory
