We use the BBGKY hierarchy equations to calculate, perturbatively, the lowest order nonlinear correction to the two-point correlation and the pair velocity for Gaussian initial conditions in a critical density matter-dominated cosmological model. We compare our results with the results obtained using the hydrodynamic equations that neglect pressure and find that the two match, indicating that there are no effects of multistreaming at this order of perturbation. We analytically study the effect… 

Dynamics of gravitational clustering I. Building perturbative expansions

We develop a systematic method to obtain the solution of the collisionless Boltzmann equation which describes the growth of large-scale structures as a perturbative series over the initial density

Self-Similarity and the Pair Velocity Dispersion

We have considered linear two-point correlations of the form 1/xγ, which are known to have a self-similar behavior in a Ω = 1 universe. We investigate under what conditions the nonlinear corrections,

Critical look at cosmological perturbation theory techniques

Recently, a number of analytic prescriptions for computing the nonlinear matter power spectrum have appeared in the literature. These typically involve resummation or closure prescriptions which do

Non‐linear redshift distortions: the two‐point correlation function

We consider a situation where the density and peculiar velocities in real space are linear, and we calculate ξs, the two-point correlation function in redshift space, incorporating all non-linear

Nonlinear Structure Formation and the Acoustic Scale

We present high signal-to-noise ratio measurements of the acoustic scale in the presence of nonlinear growth and redshift distortions using 320 h−3 Gpc 3 of cosmological particle-mesh simulations.

Intensity mapping with neutral hydrogen and the Hidden Valley simulations

This paper introduces the HiddenValley simulations, a set of trillion-particle N-body simulations in gigaparsec volumes aimed at intensity mapping science. We present details of the simulations and

Reconstructing large-scale structure with neutral hydrogen surveys

Upcoming 21-cm intensity surveys will use the hyperfine transition in emission to map out neutral hydrogen in large volumes of the universe. Unfortunately, large spatial scales are completely

Statistics of the epoch of reionization (EoR) 21-cm signal – II. The evolution of the power-spectrum error-covariance

The EoR 21-cm signal is expected to become highly non-Gaussian as reionization progresses. This severely affects the error-covariance of the EoR 21-cm power spectrum which is important for predicting

Redshift space correlations and scale-dependent stochastic biasing of density peaks

We calculate the redshift space correlation function and the power spectrum of density peaks of a Gaussian random field. Our derivation, which is valid on linear scales
