1 DESpec: Key Science Goals Ofer Lahav University College London - DES and needs for spectroscopy per probe - The landscape of spectroscopic surveys - Improving DE FoM with DESpec+DES - DE vs. Modified Gravity with DESpec+DES - Neutrino Mass with DESpec+DES - Required calculations and challenges ahead

2 What will be the next paradigm shift? Vacuum energy (cosmological constant)? Dynamical scalar field? –w=p/  – for cosmological constant: w = -1 Modified Gravity? Inhomogeneous Universe? What if cosmological constant after all? Multiverse? The Anthropic Principle?

3 The Landscape of Surveys Photometric surveys: DES*, VISTA, Pan-STARRS, HSC, Skymapper, PAU*, LSST*, … Spetroscopic surveys: WiggleZ, BOSS, e-BOSS, BigBOSS*, DESpec*,HETDEX*, Subaru/Sumire*, VISTA/spec*, SKA, … Space Missions: Euclid vs. WFIRST (*) Talks at this meeting

12 DESpec: Spectroscopic follow up of DES Proposed Dark Energy Spectrometer (DESpec) 4000–fibre $40M instrument for the 4m Blanco telescope in Chile (same as DES) – Tom Diehl’s talk 10 million galaxy spectra, target list from DES, starting 2017 Spectral range approx 550 to 1080nm, R=1500 DES+DESpec can improve DE FoM by several DES+DESpec can distinguish DE from ModGrav In the UK we submitted SoI to STFC, alongside 4 other SoI’s on spectroscopic surveys

13 Possible DESpec survey strategies (A) 100% spectroscopic completeness of the DES galaxies to r=21 mag, with redshift precision of 50 km/sec (B) The above plus 50% completeness to r=22.5 mag evenly distributed over all redshifts bins (using photo-z information to distribute the target selection in redshift) (C) Redshift precision of ~300km/s with 100% completeness to r=22 mag

14 Questions presented to DES WGs How significant it is to have the spectroscopic follow up for your probe? How would the DE FoM be improved for your probe? What other analyses can be done with spectroscopy (eg redshift distortion, removing of intrinsic alignments for WL, galaxy properties, etc.) What magnitude and colour cuts, survey area and spectral resolution would be ideal for your science? Any other clever ideas for utilizing specroscopy?

15 DESpec: benefits per probe Photo-z/spec TF: better photo-z calibration (Abdalla) LSS: RSD and radial BAO (Percival), FoM improved by several (3-6) Clusters: better redshifts and velocity dispersions (Gerke), FoM up by several WL: little improvement for FoM (as projected mass, but may help with IA) WL+LSS: a lot for both DE and for ModGrav (Gaztanaga, Kirk, Bacon) SN Ia: Spectra of host galaxies and for photo-z training, improving FoM by 2 (Sako) Galaxy Evolution: galaxy properties and star-formation history (Thomas) Strong Lensing: improved cluster mass models

16 LSS improvement with DESpec Percival & Samushia FoM (DESpec+DES4+II+Planck) / FoM(DES4+II+Planck) = Assume for 10 million spectra over 0.2

17 DES(WL) + DESpec(LSS) 10 million spectra with uniform density over 0.2 < z < 1.7 Kirk, Lahav & Bridle, in prep Note these are sensitive to assumed priors

18 Deviations from standard GR? Lensing is sensitive to the sum of potentials, while velocities respond to the temporal potential Reyes et al. (Nature, 2010) Claimed GR is confirmed from lensing and galaxy velocities
