Neutrinos and Cosmic Large-Scale Structures

Farshad Kamali Nezhad, Physics PhD Student, University of Florida

The effort of cosmologists and astronomers in the past century has formulated a ‘standard model’ of cosmology, which we usually refer to as LCDM. Although being very accurate in describing the observations, there are so many holes and tensions in this model such as H_0 tension, Dark matter and Dark energy problems and etc. One of the puzzles that we hope we can solve with cosmology, is constraining the mass of relic background neutrinos, contributing to both particle physics and cosmology.
In this talk, I will review LCDM model and then if possible, I will mention the possibility of constraining the mass of the neutrinos using cosmological galaxy surveys.
