Interpretable and higher-order statistics for late-time cosmology


IFPU & online
June 27 – July 1, 2022


In the last decade, the study of the large-scale structures of the universe has undergone exponential progress thanks to increasingly powerful experiments. Galaxy surveys mapping the entire sky, observing millions of bright galaxies up to high redshifts, are transforming cosmology into a data-driven, precision science. The goal of the focus week will be to discuss higher-order summary statistics as a promising method to extract cosmological information from galaxy surveys, providing complementary information to conventional methods based on low-order correlation functions.
