Neutrino masses, scaledependent growth, and redshiftspace distortions
Abstract
Massive neutrinos leave a unique signature in the large scale clustering of matter. We investigate the wavenumber dependence of the growth factor arising from neutrino masses and use a Fisher analysis to determine the aspects of a galaxy survey needed to measure this scale dependence.

SYSTEMATIC EFFECTS ON DETERMINATION OF THE GROWTH FACTOR FROM REDSHIFTSPACE DISTORTIONS
The linear growth factor of density perturbations is generally believed to be a powerful observable quantity of future large redshift surveys to probe physical properties of dark energy and to distinguish among various gravity theories. We investigate systematic effects on determination of the linear growth factor f from a measurement of redshiftspace distortions. Using a large set of highresolution Nbody simulations, we identify dark matter halos over a broad mass range. We compute the power spectra and correlation functions for the halos and then investigate how well the redshift distortion parameter {beta} {identical_to} f/b can be reconstructed as a functionmore » 
MAPPING GROWTH AND GRAVITY WITH ROBUST REDSHIFT SPACE DISTORTIONS
Redshift space distortions (RSDs) caused by galaxy peculiar velocities provide a window onto the growth rate of largescale structure and a method for testing general relativity. We investigate through a comparison of Nbody simulations to various extensions of perturbation theory beyond the linear regime, the robustness of cosmological parameter extraction, including the gravitational growth index {gamma}. We find that the Kaiser formula and some perturbation theory approaches bias the growth rate by 1{sigma} or more relative to the fiducial at scales as large as k > 0.07 h Mpc{sup 1}. This bias propagates to estimates of the gravitational growth indexmore » 
Nonlinear stochastic growth rates and redshift space distortions
The linear growth rate is commonly defined through a simple deterministic relation between the velocity divergence and the matter overdensity in the linear regime. We introduce a formalism that extends this to a nonlinear, stochastic relation between θ = ∇ ∙ v(x,t)/aH and δ. This provides a new phenomenological approach that examines the conditional mean , together with the fluctuations of θ around this mean. We also measure these stochastic components using Nbody simulations and find they are nonnegative and increase with decreasing scale from ~10 per cent at k < 0.2 h Mpc ^{1} to 25 per cent atmore »Cited by 5 
Redshift space correlations and scaledependent stochastic biasing of density peaks
We calculate the redshift space correlation function and the power spectrum of density peaks of a Gaussian random field. Our derivation, which is valid on linear scales k < or approx. 0.1 hMpc{sup 1}, is based on the peak biasing relation given by Desjacques [Phys. Rev. D, 78, 103503 (2008)]. In linear theory, the redshift space power spectrum is P{sub pk}{sup s}(k,{mu})=exp(f{sup 2{sigma}}{sub vel}{sup 2}k{sup 2{mu}2})[b{sub pk}(k)+b{sub vel}(k)f{mu}{sup 2}]{sup 2}P{sub {delta}(k)}, where {mu} is the angle with respect to the line of sight, {sigma}{sub vel} is the onedimensional velocity dispersion, f is the growth rate, and b{sub pk}(k) and b{submore »
