# Primordial non-Gaussianity in the bispectrum of the halo density field

@article{Baldauf2010PrimordialNI, title={Primordial non-Gaussianity in the bispectrum of the halo density field}, author={Tobias Baldauf and Uros Seljak and Leonardo Senatore}, journal={Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics}, year={2010}, volume={2011}, pages={006-006} }

The bispectrum vanishes for linear Gaussian fields and is thus a sensitive probe of non-linearities and non-Gaussianities in the cosmic density field. Hence, a detection of the bispectrum in the halo density field would enable tight constraints on non-Gaussian processes in the early Universe and allow inference of the dynamics driving inflation. We present a tree level derivation of the halo bispectrum arising from non-linear clustering, non-linear biasing and primordial non-Gaussianity. A…
