Large scale structures and the distant universe

The NUT simulation (c) T Kimm

Research axes

Context

CMB

Lensing

Numerical simulations

Data processing- cosmo-statistics

Large cosmological surveys

Dark matter/Dark energy

 

Context


• Large scale structure to probe cosmic model : what can we learn about Universe using large scale structures ?
• Large scale structures as an environment for galaxies: how do LSS give birth to galaxies ? Implications.

They fall within the scientific themes

• Lenses, (strong & weak)
• CMB, polarisation, Non Gaussianity
• Dark matter/Dark energy
• Large scale structures versus galaxy formation
• Large cosmological surveys.

They will involve the scientific methods

• Statistical analysis & inverse methods.
• Pipelines/Surveys; (DPC Planck/Terapix/Euclid)
• Numerical simulations, HPC, Computational geometry.

Our main goals are

• Scientific analysis of Planck results; primary probes; ...
• Cosmo-statistics geometry/morphology of large scale structures
• Virtual observables for Planck/Euclid/LSS
• Science support for Euclid: WL/topologie/BAO/DE/Dark Matter/etc...
• Numerical simulations
