We analyze Dark Energy Survey (DES) data to constrain a cosmological model where a subset of parameters -- focusing on $\Omega_m$ -- are split into versions associated with structure growth (e.g. $\Omega_m^{\rm grow}$) and expansion history (e.g. $\Omega_m^{\rm geo}$). Once the parameters have been specified for the $\Lambda$CDM cosmological model, which includes general relativity as a theory of gravity, it uniquely predicts the evolution of both geometry (distances) and the growth of… 

A test of the standard cosmological model with geometry and growth

We perform a general test of the ΛCDM and wCDM cosmological models by comparing constraints on the geometry of the expansion history to those on the growth of structure. Specifically, we split the

Growth of Cosmic Structure

We review one of the most fruitful areas in cosmology today that bridge theory and data — the temporal growth of large-scale structure. We go over the growth’s physical foundations, and derive its

Combined $13\times2$-point analysis of the Cosmic Microwave Background and Large-Scale Structure: implications for the $S_8$-tension and neutrino mass constraints

We present cosmological constraints for the flat $\Lambda$CDM model, including the sum of neutrino masses, by performing a multi-probe analysis of a total of 13 tomographic auto- and cross-angular

The growth of density perturbations in the last ∼10 billion years from tomographic large-scale structure data

In order to investigate the origin of the ongoing tension between the amplitude of matter fluctuations measured by weak lensing experiments at low redshifts and the value inferred from the cosmic

Five-percent measurements of the growth rate from simulation-based modelling of redshift-space clustering in BOSS LOWZ

We use a simulation-based modelling approach to analyse the anisotropic clustering of the BOSS LOWZ sample over the radial range $0.4 \, h^{-1} \, \mathrm{Mpc}$ to $63 \, h^{-1} \, \mathrm{Mpc}$,

Machine learning and cosmographic reconstructions of quintessence and the swampland conjectures

We present model independent reconstructions of quintessence and the Swampland conjectures (SC) using both Machine Learning (ML) and cosmography. In particular, we demonstrate how the synergies

A method of expanding a tube into engagement with a header wherein the expander is permitted to move longitudinally a predetermined amount relative to the tube while the expander is being rotated and

Anesthetic: Nested Sampling Visualisation

This work unifies many existing tools and techniques in an extensible framework that is intuitive for users familiar with the standard Python packages, namely NumPy, SciPy, Matplotlib and pandas.

The BAHAMAS project : the CMB-large-scale structure tension and the roles of massive neutrinos and galaxy formation

Recent studies have presented evidence for tension between the constraints on Omega_m and sigma_8 from the cosmic microwave background (CMB) and measurements of large-scale structure (LSS). This

Parameter splitting in dark energy: is dark energy the same in the background and in the cosmic structures?

We perform an empirical consistency test of General Relativity/dark energy by disentangling expansion history and growth of structure constraints. We replace each late-universe parameter that

Beyond linear galaxy alignments

Galaxy intrinsic alignments (IA) are a critical uncertainty for current and future weak lensing measurements. We describe a perturbative expansion of IA, analogous to the treatment of galaxy biasing.

Testing the dark energy consistency with geometry and growth

We perform parametric tests of the consistency of the standard $w$CDM model in the framework of general relativity by carefully separating information between the geometry and growth of structure. We

Metacalibration is a recently introduced method to accurately measure weak gravitational lensing shear using only the available imaging data, without need for prior information about galaxy

Is modified gravity required by observations? An empirical consistency test of dark energy models

We apply the technique of parameter splitting to existing cosmological data sets, to check for a generic failure of dark energy models. Given a dark energy parameter, such as the energy density
