Signature of primordial non-Gaussianity of ϕ3 type in the mass function and bias of dark matter haloes


Desjacques, V; Seljak, U (2010). Signature of primordial non-Gaussianity of ϕ3 type in the mass function and bias of dark matter haloes. Physical Review D, 81(2):023006.

Abstract

We explore the effect of a cubic correction gNLϕ3 on the mass function and bias of dark matter haloes extracted from a series of large N-body simulations and compare it to theoretical predictions. Such cubic terms can be motivated in scenarios like the curvaton model, in which a large cubic correction can be produced while simultaneously keeping the quadratic fNLϕ2 correction small. The deviation from the Gaussian halo mass function is in reasonable agreement with the theoretical predictions. The scale-dependent bias correction Δbκ(k,gNL) measured from the auto- and cross-power spectrum of haloes, is similar to the correction in fNL models, but the amplitude is lower than theoretical expectations. Using the compilation of LSS data in [A. Slosar , J. Cosmol. Astropart. Phys.1475-7516 08 (2008) 03110.1088/1475-7516/2008/08/031], we obtain for the first time a limit on gNL of -3.5×105<gNL<+8.2×105 (at 95% CL). This limit will improve with the future LSS data by 1-2 orders of magnitude, which should test many of the scenarios of this type.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
