A Press Schechter function -- the variance on mass scale

  1. Sep 15, 2017 #1
    In obtaining the Press Schechter function, the variance on mass scale is differentiated with respect to mass. The variance on a mass scale is a function of wavenumber k through the Power spectrum and transfer function. To eliminate k dependence, some value of k must be inserted into the variance on mass scale. Can someone explain how this is done?
