Abstract We present the CosmoBolognaLib, a large set of Open Source C++ numerical libraries for cosmological calculations. CosmoBolognaLib is a living project aimed at defining a common numerical environment for cosmological investigations of the large-scale structure of the Universe. In particular, one of the primary focuses of this software is to help in handling astronomical catalogues, both real and simulated, measuring one-point, two-point and three-point statistics in configuration space… 
Cosmological exploitation of cosmic void statistics. New numerical tools in the CosmoBolognaLib to extract cosmological constraints from the void size function
We present new numerical tools to analyse cosmic void catalogues, implemented inside the CosmoBolognaLib, a large set of Open Source C++/Python numerical libraries. The CosmoBolognaLib provides a
The XXL Survey
Context.Galaxy clusters trace the highest density peaks in the large-scale structure of the Universe. Their clustering provides a powerful probe that can be exploited in combination with cluster mass
The void size function in dynamical dark energy cosmologies
We test a theoretical description of the void size distribution function against direct estimates from halo catalogues of the DEMNUni suite of large cosmological simulations. Besides standard
Modelling the size distribution of cosmic voids
The currently accepted flat-ΛCDM Standard Cosmological Model accounts for the existence of two major energy components, Cold Dark Matter and Dark Energy, and for the flatness of the metric. Despite
Clustering of Clusters as a Cosmological Probe
Galaxy clusters play a leading role in both present and planned cosmological investigations. They represent the biggest collapsed structure of the Universe, sitting on top of the highest peaks of
Validating the methodology for constraining the linear growth rate from clustering anisotropies
Redshift-space clustering distortions provide one of the most powerful probes to test the gravity theory on the largest cosmological scales. We perform a systematic validation study of the
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.
Massive Neutrinos and Galaxy Clustering in f(R) Gravity Cosmologies
Cosmic neutrinos have been playing a key role in cosmology since the discovery of their mass. They can affect cosmological observables and have several implications being the only hot dark matter
Clustering and redshift-space distortions in modified gravity models with massive neutrinos
Modified gravity and massive neutrino cosmologies are two of the most interesting scenarios that have been recently explored to account for possible observational deviations from the concordance Λ
Cosmological constraints from a joint analysis of cosmic growth and expansion
Combining measurements on the expansion history of the Universe and on the growth rate of cosmic structures is key to discriminate between alternative cosmological frameworks and to test gravity.

CosmoPMC: Cosmology Population Monte Carlo
We present the public release of the Bayesian sampling algorithm for cosmology, CosmoPMC (Cosmology Population Monte Carlo). CosmoPMC explores the parameter space of various cosmological probes, and
Planck 2013 results. XVI. Cosmological parameters
This paper presents the first cosmological results based on Planck measurements of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) temperature and lensing-potential power spectra. We find that the Planck
The mass function of dark matter haloes
We combine data from a number of N-body simulations to predict the abundance of dark haloes in cold dark matter (CDM) universes over more than four orders of magnitude in mass. A comparison of
CUTE solutions for two-point correlation functions from large cosmological datasets
In the advent of new large galaxy surveys, which will produce enormous datasets with hundreds of millions of objects, new computational techniques are necessary in order to extract from them any
Toward a halo mass function for precision cosmology: The Limits of universality
We measure the mass function of dark matter halos in a large set of collisionless cosmological simulations of flat ΛCDM cosmology and investigate its evolution at -->z 2. Halos are identified as
Scaling relations for galaxy clusters in the Millennium-XXL simulation
We present a very large high-resolution cosmological N-body simulation, the Millennium-XXL or MXXL, which uses 303 billion particles to represent the formation of dark matter structures throughout a

CfunBASE is a customizable C# cosmological functions library in the .NET framework. Its primary use is in CasJobs/SkyServer, where the functions are ported into a MS-SQL Server database hosting the
Clustering and redshift-space distortions in interacting dark energy cosmologies
We investigate the spatial properties of the large-scale structure of the Universe in the framework of coupled dark energy (cDE) cosmologies. Using the public halo catalogues from the Coupled Dark
