Abstract:

We present a model-independent, spherically symmetric density estimatorto be used in the cross-correlation of imaging catalogs with objects ofknown redshift. The estimator is a simple modification of the usualprojected density estimator, with weightings that produce a sphericalaperture rather than a cylindrical one.
