An effective description of dark matter and dark energy in the mildly nonlinear regime
Abstract
In the next few years, we are going to probe the lowredshift universe with unprecedented accuracy. Among the various fruits that this will bear, it will greatly improve our knowledge of the dynamics of dark energy, though for this there is a strong theoretical preference for a cosmological constant. We assume that dark energy is described by the socalled Effective Field Theory of Dark Energy, which assumes that dark energy is the Goldstone boson of time translations. Such a formalism makes it easy to ensure that our signatures are consistent with wellestablished principles of physics. Since most of the information resides at high wavenumbers, it is important to be able to make predictions at the highest wavenumber that is possible. The Effective Field Theory of LargeScale Structure (EFTofLSS) is a theoretical framework that has allowed us to make accurate predictions in the mildly nonlinear regime. In this paper, we derive the nonlinear equations that extend the EFTofLSS to include the effect of dark energy both on the matter fields and on the biased tracers. For the specific case of clustering quintessence, we then perturbatively solve to cubic order the resulting nonlinear equations and construct the oneloop power spectrum of themore »
