We present density split statistics, a framework that studies lensing and counts-in-cells as a function of foreground galaxy density, thereby providing a large-scale measurement of both 2-point and 3-point statistics. Our method extends our earlier work on trough lensing and is summarized as follows: given a foreground (low redshift) population of galaxies, we divide the sky into subareas of equal size but distinct galaxy density. We then measure lensing around uniformly spaced points… 
Studying galaxy troughs and ridges using weak gravitational lensing with the Kilo-Degree Survey
We study projected underdensities in the cosmic galaxy density field known as 'troughs', and their overdense counterparts, which we call 'ridges'. We identify these regions using a bright sample of
On the relative bias of void tracers in the Dark Energy Survey
Luminous tracers of large-scale structure are not entirely representative of the distribution of mass in our Universe. As they arise from the highest peaks in the matter density field, the spatial
Constraining Dark Energy with Stacked Concave Lenses
Low density regions are less affected by the nonlinear structure formation and baryonic physics. They are ideal places for probing the nature of dark energy, a possible explanation for the cosmic
Extreme spheres: counts-in-cells for 21cm intensity mapping
Intensity mapping surveys will provide access to a coarse view of the cosmic large-scale structure in unprecedented large volumes at high redshifts. Given the large fractions of the sky that can be
Dark Energy Survey year 1 results: the relationship between mass and light around cosmic voids
What are the mass and galaxy profiles of cosmic voids? In this paper, we use two methods to extract voids in the Dark Energy Survey (DES) Year 1 redMaGiC galaxy sample to address this question. We
How to optimally constrain galaxy assembly bias: supplement projected correlation functions with count-in-cells statistics
Most models for the statistical connection between galaxies and their haloes ignore the possibility that galaxy properties may be correlated with halo properties other than halo mass, a phenomenon
CFHTLenS: Galaxy bias as function of scale, stellar mass, and colour
Galaxy models predict a tight relation between the clustering of galaxies and dark matter on cosmological scales, but predictions differ notably in the details. We used this opportunity and tested
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
A nulling strategy for modelling lensing convergence in cones with large deviation theory
The distribution of the cosmic convergence field is modelled using a large deviation principle where all non-Gaussian contributions are computed from first principles. The geometry of the past
Cylinders out of a top hat: counts-in-cells for projected densities
Large deviation statistics is implemented to predict the statistics of cosmic densities in cylinders applicable to photometric surveys. It yields few percent accurate analytical predictions for the


Testing the lognormality of the galaxy and weak lensing convergence distributions from Dark Energy Survey maps
It is well known that the probability distribution function (PDF) of galaxy density contrast is approximately lognormal; whether the PDF of mass fluctuations derived from weak lensing convergence
On combining galaxy clustering and weak lensing to unveil galaxy biasing via the halo model
We formulate the concept of non-linear and stochastic galaxy biasing in the framework of halo occupation statistics. Using two-point statistics in projection, we define the galaxy bias function,
Weak lensing by galaxy troughs in DES Science Verification data
We measure the weak lensing shear around galaxy troughs, i.e. the radial alignment of background galaxies relative to underdensities in projections of the foreground galaxy field over a wide range of
A question of separation : disentangling tracer bias and gravitational nonlinearity with counts-in-cells statistics
Starting from a very accurate model for density-in-cells statistics of dark matter based on large deviation theory, a bias model for the tracer density in spheres is formulated. It adopts a mean bias
The large-scale correlations of multicell densities and profiles: implications for cosmic variance estimates
In order to quantify the error budget in the measured probability distribution functions of cell densities, the two-point statistics of cosmic densities in concentric spheres is investigated. Bias

Recent studies have shown that the cross-correlation coefficient between galaxies and dark matter is very close to unity on scales outside a few virial radii of galaxy haloes, independent of the
