# Going beyond the galaxy power spectrum: An analysis of BOSS data with wavelet scattering transforms

@article{Valogiannis2022GoingBT, title={Going beyond the galaxy power spectrum: An analysis of BOSS data with wavelet scattering transforms}, author={Georgios Valogiannis and Cora Dvorkin}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2022} }

We perform the ﬁrst application of the wavelet scattering transform (WST) on actual galaxy observations, through a WST analysis of the BOSS DR12 CMASS dataset. We lay out the detailed procedure on how to capture all necessary layers of realism for an application on data obtained from a spectroscopic survey, including the eﬀects of redshift-space anisotropy, non-trivial survey geometry, the shortcomings of the dataset through a set of systematic weights and the Alcock-Paczynski distortion eﬀect…
