We present the first high significance detection ($4.1\sigma$) of the Baryon Acoustic Oscillations (BAO) feature in the galaxy bispectrum of the twelfth data release (DR12) of the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) CMASS sample ($0.43 \leq z \leq 0.7$). We measured the scale dilation parameter, $\alpha$, using the power spectrum, bispectrum, and both simultaneously for DR12, plus 2048 MultiDark-PATCHY mocks in the North and South Galactic Caps (NGC and SGC, respectively), and the… 

BOSS DR12 full-shape cosmology: ΛCDM constraints from the large-scale galaxy power spectrum and bispectrum monopole

We present a full ΛCDM analysis of the BOSS DR12 dataset, including information from the power spectrum multipoles, the real-space power spectrum, the reconstructed power spectrum and the bispectrum

Geometrical compression: a new method to enhance the BOSS galaxy bispectrum monopole constraints

We present a novel method to compress galaxy clustering three-point statistics and apply it to redshift space galaxy bispectrum monopole measurements from BOSS DR12 CMASS data considering a $k$-space

Speeding up the detectability of the harmonic-space galaxy bispectrum

We present a method that allows us for the first time to estimate the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of the harmonic-space galaxy bispectrum induced by gravity, a complementary probe to already well

The halo bispectrum multipoles in redshift space

We present the analysis of the halo bispectrum in redshift-space in terms of its multipoles, monopole, quadrupole and hexadecapole, measured from a large set of simulations. We fit such measurements

Higher multipoles of the galaxy bispectrum in redshift space

As a generalization of our previous work [Phys. Rev. D 95 (2017) 043528], in which an analytic model for the galaxy bispectrum in redshift space was developed on the basis of the halo approach, we

Integrated trispectrum detection from BOSS DR12 NGC CMASS

We present the first detection of the integrated trispectrum (i-trispectrum) monopole and quadrupoles signal from BOSS CMASS NGC DR12. Extending the FKP estimators formalism to the Fourier transform

Enhancing BOSS bispectrum cosmological constraints with maximal compression

Using two compression methods to the galaxy power spectrum monopole/quadrupole and bispectrum monopole measurements from the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey DR12 CMASS sample will drastically reduce the number of simulations needed to compute accurate covariance matrices and will facilitate tighter constraints on cosmological parameters.

Cosmological parameters from the likelihood analysis of the galaxy power spectrum and bispectrum in real space

We present a joint likelihood analysis of the halo power spectrum and bispectrum in real space. We take advantage of a large set of numerical simulations and of an even larger set of halo mock

Low redshift baryon acoustic oscillation measurement from the reconstructed 6-degree field galaxy survey.

This paper re-evaluate the cosmological information from the BAO detection in 6dFGS making use of halo occupation distribution (HOD)-populated COmoving Lagrangian Acceleration (COLA) mocks for an accurate covariance matrix and take advantage of the now commonly implemented technique of density field reconstruction.

Towards cosmological constraints from the compressed modal bispectrum: a robust comparison of real-space bispectrum estimators

Higher-order clustering statistics, like the galaxy bispectrum, can add complementary cosmological information to what is accessible with two-point statistics, like the power spectrum. While the
