  • Description:

    With the current and upcoming large imaging and spectroscopic surveys, we are able to use the excess large scale clustering to reveal the nature of our early Universe. We will present preliminary results of using imaging data from SDSS III to constrain primordial non-gaussianities and we will also discuss the other interesting avenues in measuring the primordial non-gaussianities in large scale structures.
