Key Details

Galaxy properties like color and star formation rate vary across web environments

Correlations between properties differ in filaments, sheets, and clusters

Cosmic web geometry appears to influence galaxy evolution

Property correlations are sensitive to stellar mass distribution

Web environment impacts property correlations independently of density

Galaxy properties in cosmic web environments

This paper analyzes correlations between galaxy color, mass, star formation rate, and metallicity in different large-scale environments of the cosmic web. It finds significant differences in these correlations when comparing filaments, sheets, and clusters. The results suggest galaxy properties are shaped by both internal processes and interactions with their web environment.
