Primordial non-Gaussianity from LAMOST surveys

AbstractThe primordial non-Gaussianity (PNG) in the matter density perturbation is a very powerful probe of the physics of the very early Universe. The local PNG can induce a distinct scale-dependent bias on the large scale structure distribution of galaxies and quasars, which could be used for constraining it. We study the detection limits of PNG from the surveys of the LAMOST telescope. The cases of the main galaxy survey, the luminous red galaxy (LRG) survey, and the quasar survey of different magnitude limits are considered. We find that the Main I sample (i.e. the main galaxy survey which is one magnitude deeper than the SDSS main galaxy survey, or r < 18.8) could only provide a very weak constraint on PNG. For the Main2 sample (r < 19.8) and the LRG survey, the 2 sigma, (95.5%) limits on the PNG parameter f(NL) are vertical bar f(NL)vertical bar < 145 and vertical bar f(NL)vertical bar < 114 respectively, which are comparable to the current limit from cosmic microwave background (CMB) data. The quasar survey could provide a much more stringent constraint, and we find that the 2 sigma, limit for vertical bar f(NL)vertical bar is between 50 and 103, depending on the magnitude limit of the survey. With Planck-like priors on cosmological parameters, the quasar survey with g < 21.65 would improve the constraint to vertical bar f(NL)vertical bar < 43 (2 sigma). We also discuss the possibility of further tightening the constraint by using the relative bias method proposed by Seljak.
