Title: Clustering-based Redshift estimation


The clustering of galaxies has emerged as a powerful way to estimate the redshift distribution of a sample. I will briefly review how we can get access to redshift information from the crosscorrelation function. Then, using the MICE2 simulation I will present how we can get individual redshifts for each galaxy as well as the corresponding accuracy.
