Statistical Challenges for Large-scale Structure in the Era of LSST

Workshop Description

Large-scale structure (LSS) is a powerful cosmological tool, in particular in combination with weak lensing observations. However, a number of statistical, computational, and theoretical challenges will be brought about by the unprecedented depth and data volume of experiments such as the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST). The aim of this workshop is to gather experts in LSS, both within LSST and other collaborations, to achieve a unified picture of the methods and strategies at our disposal to address these problems, as well as to highlight the role of LSS within next-generation surveys as an indispensable cosmological probe.
