Future large-scale spectroscopic astronomical surveys, e.g. Euclid, will enable the compilation of vast new catalogues of clusters and voids in the galaxy distribution. By combining the constraining power of both cluster and void number counts, such surveys could place stringent simultaneous limits on the sum of neutrino masses $M_\nu$ and the dark energy equation of state $w(z) = w_0 + w_a z/(1+z)$. For minimal normal-hierarchy neutrino masses, we forecast that Euclid clusters + voids ideally…

Cosmic voids in modified gravity models with massive neutrinos

Cosmic voids are progressively emerging as a new viable cosmological probe. Their abundance and density profiles are sensitive to modifications of gravity, as well as to dark energy and neutrinos.

Detecting Neutrino Mass by Combining Matter Clustering, Halos, and Voids

We quantify the information content of the nonlinear matter power spectrum, the halo mass function, and the void size function, using the Quijote N-body simulations. We find that these three

Updated results on neutrino mass and mass hierarchy from cosmology with Planck 2018 likelihoods

In this work we update the bounds on ∑ mν from latest publicly available cosmological data and likelihoods using Bayesian analysis, while explicitly considering particular neutrino mass hierarchies.

Bias due to neutrinos must not uncorrect'd go

It is a well known fact that galaxies are biased tracers of the distribution of matter in the Universe. The galaxy bias is usually factored as a function of redshift and scale, and approximated as

Inferring high-redshift large-scale structure dynamics from the Lyman-αforest

One of the major science goals over the coming decade is to test fundamental physics with probes of the cosmic large-scale structure out to high redshift. Here we present a fully Bayesian approach to

Fisher for complements: extracting cosmology and neutrino mass from the counts-in-cells PDF

We comprehensively analyse the cosmology dependence of counts-in-cells statistics. We focus on the shape of the one-point probability distribution function (PDF) of the matter density field at

Cosmological exploitation of the size function of cosmic voids identified in the distribution of biased tracers

Cosmic voids are large underdense regions that, together with galaxy clusters, filaments and walls, build-up the large-scale structure of the Universe. The void size function provides a powerful

The Halo Void (Dust) Model of large scale structure

Within the Halo Model of large scale structure, all matter is contained in dark matter halos. This simple yet powerful framework has been broadly applied to multiple data sets and enriched our

How Do Galaxy Properties Affect Void Statistics?

Using mapping from dark matter halos to galaxy properties based on hydrodynamical simulations, we explore the impact of galaxy properties on the void size function and the void–galaxy correlation

EuCAPT White Paper: Opportunities and Challenges for Theoretical Astroparticle Physics in the Next Decade

Astroparticle physics is undergoing a profound transformation, due to a series of extraordinary new results, such as the discovery of high-energy cosmic neutrinos with IceCube, the direct detection



Voids in massive neutrino cosmologies

Cosmic voids are a promising environment to characterize neutrino-induced effects on the large-scale distribution of matter in the universe. We perform a comprehensive numerical study of the

Physical effects involved in the measurements of neutrino masses with future cosmological data

Future Cosmic Microwave Background experiments together with upcoming galaxy and 21-cm surveys will provide extremely accurate measurements of different cosmological observables located at different

Next Generation Cosmology: Constraints from the Euclid Galaxy Cluster Survey

We study the characteristics of the galaxy cluster samples expected from the European Space Agency's Euclid satellite and forecast constraints on parameters describing a variety of cosmological

The cluster abundance in flat and open cosmologies

We use the galaxy cluster X-ray temperature distribution function to constrain the am­ plitude of the power spectrum of density inhomogeneities on the scale corresponding to clusters. We carry out

The XMM Cluster Survey: forecasting cosmological and cluster scaling-relation parameter constraints

We forecast the constraints on the values of s8, Om and cluster scaling-relation parameters which we expect to obtain from the XMM Cluster Survey (XCS). We assume a flat cold dark matter Universe and

Neutrino masses and their ordering: global data, priors and models

We present a full Bayesian analysis of the combination of current neutrino oscillation, neutrinoless double beta decay and Cosmic Microwave Background observations. Our major goal is to carefully

Prospects for Measurement of the Neutrino Mass Hierarchy

The unknown neutrino mass hierarchy—whether the ν_3 mass eigenstate is the heaviest or the lightest—represents a major gap in our knowledge of neutrino properties. Determining the hierarchy is a

DEMNUni: massive neutrinos and the bispectrum of large scale structures

The main effect of massive neutrinos on the large-scale structure consists in a few percent suppression of matter perturbations on all scales below their free-streaming scale. Such effect is of

Cosmological measurements with general relativistic galaxy correlations

We investigate the cosmological dependence and the constraining power of large-scale galaxy correlations, including all redshift-distortions, wide-angle, lensing and gravitational potential effects
