Machine Learning as a solution to

  • Non-linearities Produce accurate predictions based on N-body simulations
  • Non-Gaussianity Extract cosmological information at the field level

Cosmology =

\{\vec{c}\}

Main Assumptions

  1. Galaxies don't impact dark matter clustering
  2. Number of galaxies depends on halo mass only
  1. We don't know the Initial Conditions
  2. Data is very high dimensional
  3. Large number of parameters to constrain
  4. N-body sims extremely slow to run! (Sampling parameter space > O(10^6) calls)

Cosmology =

Galaxy =

\{\vec{g}\}

Optimize the marginal likelihood: Analytical solution!

Pros

  • Easy to get going
  • Small number of free parameters

Cons

  •  Scales badly with training set size O(n^3)
  • Scales badly with number of input features

Network A

Network B

Pros

  • Fast, does not scale with n
  • Can model large input features

Cons

  • Prone to overfitting: But ways to avoid it
  • "Harder" to train (requires more exploration) 

What to emulate?

  • Flexibility: Vary galaxy tracers, and their cross-correlations. Marginalising over g requires flexible g!
  • 1% accuracy 1-sigma accuracy:
    • Emulator only as good as data used for training
    • Simplify input/output relation through physical models
\xi_{hh}^S = \red{F}(\blue{\xi_{hh}^R(r|\vec{c})}, \blue{v^{i}_{hh}(r|\vec{c})})
\xi_{gg}^S(\vec{s}|\vec{c},\vec{g},z) = \red{\mathcal{G}}(\blue{\xi_{hh}^S}(\vec{s}|\vec{c},z), \vec{g})

Analytical

1+\xi^S(s_\perp, s_\parallel) = \int dr_\parallel \left(1 + \blue{\xi^R(r)}\right) \red{\mathcal{P}(v_\parallel=s_\parallel-r_\parallel|r_\perp, r_\parallel)}

1+\xi^S(s_\perp, s_\parallel) = \int dr_\parallel \left(1 + \xi^R(r)\right) \red{\mathcal{P}(v_\parallel=s_\parallel-r_\parallel|r_\perp, r_\parallel)}
\xi^S(s_\perp, s_\parallel) \approx \xi^R(s) + \sum_n \frac{(-1)^n}{n!} \frac{d^n}{d s_\parallel^n} \left( (1+ \xi^R(s)) m_n(s) \right)

On large scales,

slowly varying function of 

r_\parallel

n = 4 reproduces clustering down to small scales

v_\parallel < 0

INFALL

v_\parallel > 0

OUTFLOW

Two representative extensions to General Relativity:

- The background expansion is the same as LCDM

- One parameter to describe deviations from LCDM

 

1+\xi^S(s_\perp, s_\parallel) = \int dr_\parallel \left(1 + \bold{\xi^R(r)}\right) \bold{\mathcal{P}(v_\parallel=s_\parallel-r_\parallel|r_\perp, r_\parallel)}

How do these vary with cosmological parameters on small scales?

Described by four parameters

\xi_{hh}^S = \red{F}(\blue{\xi_{hh}^R(r|\vec{c})}, \blue{v^{i}_{hh}(r|\vec{c})})
\xi_{gg} \propto \int d M_h W(\vec{g}_j, M_h) \xi_{hh}(M_h)

ML and cosmology

  • ML to accelerate non-linear predictions:  allow MCMC sampling of non-linear scales
    • Precision of future surveys: what and how we emulate will have a big impact on cosmological constraints

 

  • Can ML extract **all** the information that there is at the field-level in the non-linear regime?
    • Compare data and simulations, point us to the missing pieces?
