  1. Large-scale Structure:Theory & Observations Josh Frieman Structure Formation & Evolution, Santiago, October 2002

  2. The Structure Formation Cookbook 1. Initial Conditions: A Theory for the Origin of Density Perturbations in the Early Universe Your favorite Inflation model: primordial spectrum Pi ~ kn 2. Cooking with Gravity: Growing Perturbations to Form Structure Set the Oven to Cold (or Hot or Warm) Dark Matter Season with a few Baryons and add Dark Energy 3. Let Cool for 13 Billion years 4. Tweak (1) and (2) until it tastes like the observed Universe.

  3. N-body simulation: Evolution of Structure in a Cold Dark Matter Model Features: Filamentary structure amplified by gravity Hierarchical collapse, virialization, and merging of dark halos See talks by Teyssier, Navarro Virgo consortium

  4. Formation of Dark Halos (Virgo consortium)

  5. Evolution of Structure Density Power Spectrum: (k) =  d3x eik·x (x) (k1)(k2) = (2)3 P(k1)3(k1+k2) Evolution: Pgal(k) = b2gal(k) Pi(k) T(k; j, n, 8) bias primordial spectrum Non-linear Transfer function

  8. More Cold Dark Matter Less Cold Dark Matter (Open) Cold Dark Matter with 

  9. Probing Neutrino Mass and Baryon Density Wiggles Due to Non-zero Baryon Density SDSS + MAP: will constrain sum of stable neutrino masses as low as ~ 0.5 eV

  10. Constraints on the Baryon Density from 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey Power Spectrum Increasing b suppresses power on small scales (and increases amplitude of wiggles) Percival, etal. Tegmark & Hamilton

  11. 2dF GRS Power Spectrum m,tot < 2.2 eV --reasonable prior on m --BBN prior on b --simple model of bias & redshift distortions 0.05 0.01 =0  = m,tot 94 eV Elgaroy, etal

  12. Probes of Structure Formation Probing the Galaxy Distribution: --Galaxy Photometric and Spectroscopic Surveys Probing the Mass Distribution: --CMB anisotropy --Weak & Strong Gravitational Lensing --Peculiar velocities Probing the High-redshift Universe: --Constraining Dark Matter Properties via High-redshift Quasars & the Lyman-alpha forest (see talk by Petitjean) Bias

  13. Large-scale Structure, circa 1986 Center for Astrophysics Survey Filaments, Walls, Voids, Rich clusters 100 Mpc You Are Here `Pizza Slice’ 6 degrees thick containing 1060 galaxies: position of each galaxy represented by a single dot deLapparent, Geller, Huchra

  14. Las Campanas Redshift Survey Shectman,etal

  15. Colless, etal

  16. SDSS Redshift Survey ~200,000 galaxy redshifts so far

  17. APM Galaxy Survey (digitized plates) ~106 galaxy positions, magnitudes bJ < 20 Maddox,etal

  18. SDSS Imaging Survey • ~3000 sq deg. covered so far (50 M objects) • ~6600 sq. deg. by June 2005 • r’ < 22

  19. Determination of the galaxy Power spectrum c. 1990’s Surveys select different mixes of galaxy populations Evidence for type-dependent Bias Error bars not shown! Missing: PSCz, EDSGC, ESO Slice, 2dF, SDSS, … Vogeley

  20. Galaxy Clustering varies with Galaxy Type How are each of them related to the underlying Mass distribution? Bias depends upon Galaxy Type Need large, carefully selected samples to study this: 2dF, SDSS

  21. Rescale Power by linear bias factor for each survey: different galaxy types cluster with different strengths Pi(k) = b2i Pm(k) Galaxies  Mass Best fit CDM Model: h = 0.2-0.3 Vogeley

  22. Galaxies are Biased tracers of the Dark Matter Tegmark, etal

  23. “Environmental” Bias • Cannot describe bias on scales smaller than smoothing scale. • Choice of smoothing scale is arbitrary. • δm is generally unobservable.

  24. Bias Depends on Galaxy Color SDSS Redshift Survey Cf. morphology- density relation Zehavi, etal

  25. Bias depends on Galaxy Luminosity Compare 2dF results of Norberg, etal SDSS Redshift Survey Intrinsically bright Intrinsically faint

  26. Theoretical Models for Bias Requires gas dynamics, star formation, dynamical Friction, mergers, feedback, etc. Expectation: Bias depends on type and scale, evolves with time, and is stochastic Blanton, etal

  27. SPH Simulation • Ωm=0.4, ΩΛ=0.6, Ωb=0.02h-2 • h=0.65, n=0.95, σ8=0.8 • 1443 dm + 1443 gas particles • l=50 Mpc/h, mb=8.5x108Msun • Gravity + gas dynamics • radiative + Compton cooling • photoionization heating • star formation + feedback • FoF halos, b=0.173 Davé, Katz, & Weinberg

  28. Halo Occupation Distribution “Halo Occupation” Model for Bias Assume: • All galaxies live in dark matter halos. • Galaxy content of a halo is statistically independent of the • halo’s larger scale environment. Depends only on mass. The bias of a certain galaxy class (type, luminosity, etc) is fully defined by: • The probability distribution P(N|M) that a halo of mass M contains N galaxies • <N>M P(N|<N>) • The relation between the galaxy and dark matter spatial distribution within halos • The relation between the galaxy and dark matter velocity distribution within halos Also see: semi-analytic models

  29. Galaxy Clustering Cosmological Model Ω, P(k), etc. Galaxy Formation Gas cooling, Star formation, Feedback, Mergers, etc. Dark Halo Population n(M), ξ(r|M), v(r|M), ρ(r) Halo Occupation Distribution P(N|M) Spatial bias within halos Velocity bias within halos Galaxy-Mass Correlations
