About the INPA Seminars

All seminars are on Fridays (unless otherwise noted) and start at 12:00 (noon) with a brief presentation of the weekly scientific news. Typically the talks end by 13:00. The seminars take place in Bldg. 50A, room 5132.

The committee members are:

The following Seminar schedule for the Institute for Nuclear and Particle Astrophysics is tentative. The seminar becomes final usually a few days before the Friday of the talk.

Title: The extended Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey: clustering measurements, lessons, and prospects

Abstract: In this talk, I will present the clustering analysis of the ELG (Emission Line Galaxy) sample from the eBOSS (extended Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey) program of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and review the other clustering analyses of the eBOSS program, dedicated to Luminous Red Galaxies and Quasars. I will discuss theoretical, observational and analysis systematics, how they were estimated and mitigated, focusing on the improvements over the last release of the BOSS program in 2016. Specifically, I will start by presenting the extensive work of the eBOSS collaboration to test model predictions against N-body simulations. The different observational systematics of the eBOSS samples will be reviewed, as well as the adopted correction schemes and the new analysis techniques used to mitigate residual systematics. Different analysis assumptions and their impact on the clustering signal will be discussed. After a review of eBOSS legacy cosmological measurements, I will finish by drawing lessons and prospects for future galaxy surveys.

Also, on Fridays from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm you are welcome to join the INPA Speaker for a brown-bag lunch in the small Pers Hall conference room, 54-130B.

INPA Tea Series

The Physics and Nuclear Science Divisions have together been leaders in revolutionary changes in our understanding of neutrinos and cosmology. Everyone is welcome to attend the open forum. Tea and light refreshments will be served.
