dc.description.abstractWe present 1000 mock galaxy catalogues (mocks) for the analysis of the low-redshift sample (LOWZ; effective redshift z ˜ 0.32) of the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) Data Releases 10 and 11. These mocks have been created following the PTHalos method revised to include new developments. The main improvement is the introduction of a redshift dependence in the halo occupation distribution in order to account for the change of the galaxy number density with redshift. These mock galaxy catalogues are used in the analyses of the LOWZ galaxy clustering by the BOSS collaboration.
