« Illuminating non-linear structure formation with density-dependent clustering »

Mark Neyrinck

The 2-point correlation function and power spectrum optimally quantify a
Gaussian field, but lose information for a non-Gaussian field. I will
discuss the "sliced" correlation function, measuring correlations
conditional on the density. It is sensitive to different behavior in
different density regimes, and also illustrates why a Gaussianizing
transform helps to package more information into the usual correlation
function.
