We present the cosmological implications from final measurements of clustering using galaxies, quasars, and Ly$\alpha$ forests from the completed Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) lineage of experiments in large-scale structure. These experiments, composed of data from SDSS, SDSS-II, BOSS, and eBOSS, offer independent measurements of baryon acoustic oscillation (BAO) measurements of angular-diameter distances and Hubble distances relative to the sound horizon, $r_d$, from eight different samples…

Early dark energy is not excluded by current large-scale structure data

We revisit the impact of early dark energy (EDE) on galaxy clustering using BOSS galaxy power spectra, analyzed using the effective field theory (EFT) of large-scale structure (LSS), and anisotropies

Measurements of $$H_0$$ and reconstruction of the dark energy properties from a model-independent joint analysis

Gaussian processes (GP) provide an elegant and model-independent method for extracting cosmological information from the observational data. In this work, we employ GP to perform a joint analysis by

Reducing the variance of redshift space distortion measurements from mock galaxy catalogues with different lines of sight

Accurate mock catalogues are essential for assessing systematics in the cosmological analysis of large galaxy surveys. Anisotropic two-point clustering measurements from the same simulation show some

Theoretical and numerical perspectives on cosmic distance averages

The interpretation of cosmological observations relies on a notion of average Universe, which is usually taken as the homogeneous and isotropic Friedmann-Lema\^itre-Robertson-Walker (FLRW) model.

We report measurements of the scale of cosmic homogeneity (rh) using the recently released quasar sample of the sixteenth data release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-IV DR16). We perform our

TLDR
A series of improvements to the spectroscopic reductions are described, including better flat fielding and improved wavelength calibration at the blue end, better processing of objects with extremely strong narrow emission lines, and an improved determination of stellar metallicities.

Cluster Abundance Constraints for Cosmological Models with a Time-varying, Spatially Inhomogeneous Energy Component with Negative Pressure

The abundance of rich clusters is a strong constraint on the mass power spectrum. The current constraint can be expressed in the form σ8 Ω=0.5±0.1, where σ8 is the rms mass fluctuation on 8 h-1 Mpc
