Clustering Distortions from Lyman-alpha Radiative Transfer - A short introduction

Abstract

The dimensionally split power spectrum/two-point correlation are standard tools for constraining the cosmological model from redshift surveys. Given the Lyman-alpha emission line, I will try to motivate what significant distortions from the line’s radiative transfer modify those statistics.
