The extended Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (eBOSS) is one of the first of a new generation of galaxy redshift surveys that will cover a large range in redshift with sufficient resolution to measure the baryon acoustic oscillations (BAO) signal. For surveys covering a large redshift range we can no longer ignore cosmological evolution, meaning that either the redshift shells analysed have to be significantly narrower than the survey, or we have to allow for the averaging over evolving…

Using galaxy surveys to understand the cosmological evolution

Forthcoming galaxy redshift surveys are to a large extent motivated by the desire to obtain data on galaxy clustering so as to more accurately quantify the accelerating expansion of the Universe and

Constraints on the growth rate using the observed galaxy power spectrum

The large-scale structure growth index γ provides a consistency test of the standard cosmology and is a potential indicator of modified gravity. We investigate the constraints on γ from

Analyse des corrélations spatiales des quasars et implications cosmologiques avec le multi-spectrographe SDSS-IV eBOSS

The ΛCDM model of cosmology assumes the existence of an exotic component, called dark energy, to explain the late-time acceleration of the expansion of the universe at redshift z < 0.7. Alternative

Optimizing primordial non-Gaussianity measurements from galaxy surveys

Galaxy clustering data from current and upcoming large scale structure surveys can provide strong constraints on primordial non-Gaussianity through the scale-dependent halo bias. To fully exploit the

The Kaiser-Rocket effect: three decades and counting

The peculiar motion of the observer, if not accurately accounted for, is bound to induce a well-defined clustering signal in the distribution of galaxies. This signal is related to the Kaiser rocket

Compressing combined probes: redshift weights for joint lensing and clustering analyses

Combining different observational probes, such as galaxy clustering and weak lensing, is a promising technique for unveiling the physics of the Universe with upcoming dark energy experiments. Whilst
