ScaleInvariant Correlation Functions of Cosmological Density Fluctuations in the Strong Clustering Regime  Taihei Yano

It is found that the solutions for the mean relative physical velocity depend on the threepoint spatial correlation function and the skewness of the velocity fields. We find that the stable condition in which the mean relative physical velocity vanishes on the virialized regions is satisfied only under the assumptions which Davis Peebles took in his paper. It is found, however, that their assumptions may not be general in real. The power index of the twopoint correlation function in the strongly nonlinear regime depends on the mean relative peculiar velocity, the threepoint correlation function and the skewness. If the selfsimilar solutions exist, the power index in the strongly nonlinear regime is related to the power index of the initial power spectrum and its relation depends on the threepoint correlation function and the skewness through the mean relative peculiar velocity. Furthermore it is found that the mean relative physical velocity should have the values between 0 and the Hubble expanding velocity. When the mean relative physical velocity equals to the Hubble expanding velocity, there might exist selfsimilar solutions in which the power index of the twopoint correlation function in the strongly nonlinear regime is independent of the initial power index $n$.
