Abstract

We report the discovery of a probable large-scale structure composed of many galaxy clumps around the known twin clusters at $z=1.26$ and $z=1.27$ in the Lynx region. Our analysis is based on deep, panoramic, and multi-colour imaging with the Suprime-Cam on the 8.2 m Subaru telescope. We apply a photometric redshift technique to extract plausible cluster members at $z\sim1.27$ down to $\sim M^\ast+2.5$. From the 2-D distribution of these photometrically selected galaxies, we newly identify seven candidates of galaxy groups or clusters where the surface density of red galaxies is significantly high ($>$5$\sigma$), in addition to the two known clusters, comprising the largest most distant supercluster ever identified.To search for other articles by the author(s) go to: http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abstract_service.html
