To effectively exploit large-scale structure surveys, we depend on accurate and reliable predictions of non-linear cosmological structure formation. Tools for efficient and comprehensive computational modelling are therefore essential to perform cosmological parameter inference analyses. We present the public software package ReACT, demonstrating its capability for the fast and accurate calculation of non-linear power spectra from non-standard physics. We showcase ReACT through a series of…

KiDS-1000 Cosmology: Constraints beyond flat ΛCDM

We present constraints on extensions to the standard cosmological model of a spatially flat Universe governed by general relativity, a cosmological constant (Λ), and cold dark matter (CDM) by varying

Enabling matter power spectrum emulation in beyond-ΛCDM cosmologies with COLA

We compare and validate COLA (COmoving Lagrangian Acceleration) simulations against existing emulators in the literature, namely Bacco and Euclid Emulator 2. Our analysis focuses on the non-linear

Cosmological gravity on all scales. Part II. Model independent modified gravity N-body simulations

Model-independent constraints on modified gravity models hitherto exist mainly on linear scales [1]. A recently developed formalism presented a consistent parameterisation that is valid on all scales

Revisiting Vainshtein Screening for fast N-body simulations

We revisit a method to incorporate the Vainshtein screening mechanism in N-body simulations proposed by R. Scoccimarro in~\cite{Scoccimarro:2009eu}. We further extend this method to cover a subset of

Hi-COLA: fast, approximate simulations of structure formation in Horndeski gravity

We introduce Hi-COLA, a code designed to run fast, approximate N-body simulations of non-linear structure formation in reduced Horndeski gravity. Given an input Lagrangian, Hi-COLA dynamically

Dark Energy Survey Year 3 results: Constraints on extensions to ΛCDM with weak lensing and galaxy clustering

This work constrain extensions to the $\Lambda$CDM model using measurements from the Dark Energy Survey's first three years of observations and external data to find no significant evidence for physics beyond the model.

Euclid: Modelling massive neutrinos in cosmology -- a code comparison

It can be said that the impact of massive neutrinos at the sub-percent level in the most common summary statistics can be modeled at the lowest levels in the major code comparison presented here.

DEMNUni: comparing nonlinear power spectra prescriptions in the presence of massive neutrinos and dynamical dark energy

We provide an accurate comparison, against large cosmological N-body simulations, of different prescriptions for modelling nonlinear matter power spectra in the presence of massive neutrinos and

We study the potential of Bayesian Neural Networks (BNNs) to detect new physics in the dark matter power spectrum, concentrating here on evolving dark energy and modifications to General Relativity.

Emulators for the nonlinear matter power spectrum beyond ΛCDM

Accurate predictions for the nonlinear matter power spectrum are needed to confront theory with observations in current and near future weak-lensing and galaxy clustering surveys. We propose a

Baryonic feedback effects lead to a suppression of the weak lensing angular power spectrum on small scales. The poorly constrained shape and amplitude of this suppression is an important source of
