Abstract: We examine the evolution of the spatial counts-in-cells distribution of galaxies and show that the form of the galaxy distribution function does not change significantly as galaxies merge and evolve. In particular, bound merging pairs follow a similar distribution to that of individual galaxies. From the adiabatic expansion of the universe we show how clustering, expansion and galaxy mergers affect the clustering parameter b. We also predict the evolution of b with respect to redshift.
