Recent developments in
theoretical Large-Scale Structure


IFPU
July 25 – 29, 2022


Despite its great empirical success, the standard cosmological model leaves many important problems unsolved, such as the nature of dark energy (DE), of dark matter (DM), and the origin of cosmic fluctuations in the early Universe. To answer these questions an unprecedented observational program has been put forward, with several Large Scale Structure (LSS) experiments coming online within the next 5 years. It is critical for the success of this program to develop new theoretical ideas and robust data analysis methods, often beyond what is currently available. With this in mind, the aim of LSS2022 is therefore to bring together experts in the modeling of LSS, to discuss the status of the field and define the road ahead. Topics will include: Primordial Non Gaussianities, Perturbation Theory for LSS, 21cm cosmology, and searches for new physics with galaxy surveys.
