Small scale effects in the observable power spectrum at large angular scales

  title={Small scale effects in the observable power spectrum at large angular scales},
  author={William L. Matthewson and Ruth Durrer},
In this paper we show how effects from small scales enter the angular-redshift power spectrum C`(z, z ′). In particular, we show that spectroscopic surveys with high redshift resolution are affected by small scales already on large angular scales, i.e. at low multipoles. Therefore, when considering the angular power spectrum with spectroscopic redshift resolution, it is important to account for non-linearities relevant on small scales even at low multipoles. This may also motivate the use of… Expand

Multi-wavelength spectroscopic probes: prospects for primordial non-Gaussianity and relativistic effects
Next-generation cosmological surveys will observe larger cosmic volumes than ever before, enabling us to access information on the primordial Universe, as well as on relativistic effects. We considerExpand
Anti-symmetric clustering signals in the observed power spectrum
In this paper, we study how to directly measure the effect of peculiar velocities in the observed angular power spectra. We do this by constructing a new anti-symmetric estimator of Large ScaleExpand


Nonlinear contributions to angular power spectra
Future galaxy clustering surveys will probe small scales where non-linearities become important. Since the number of modes accessible on intermediate to small scales is very high, having a preciseExpand

Impact of relativistic effects on cosmological parameter estimation
Future surveys will access large volumes of space and hence very long wavelength fluctuations of the matter density and gravitational field. It has been argued that the set of secondary effects thatExpand
