WMAP5 almost fixes* the expected P lin (k) in Mpc -1 through c h 2 (6%) and b h 2 (3%), independent of CMB (and thus curvature and DE). In the minimal model (N eff = 3.04, m = 0), entire P(k) shape acts as a “std ruler” and provides an impressive consistency check -- same physics that generates the CMB at z=1100 also determines clustering at low z.

SDSS DR7 BAO results: modeling the distance-redshift relation Percival et al.

BAO in SDSS DR7 + 2dFGRS power spectra results can be written as independent constraints on a distance measure to z=0.275 and a tilt around this consistent with ΛCDM models at 1.1σ when combined with WMAP5 Reduced discrepancy compared with DR5 analysis – more data – revised error analysis (allow for non-Gaussian likelihood) – more redshift slices analyzed – improved modeling of LRG redshift distribution Percival et al.

BAO reconstruction In linear theory, velocity and density fields are simply related. Main idea: compute velocity field from measured density field, and move particles back to their initial conditions using the Zel’dovich approximation It works amazingly well: – reduces the “damping” of the BAO at low redshifts (Eisenstein et al. 2007, and thereafter) – removes the small systematic shift of the BAO to below the cosmic variance limit, <0.05% (Seo et al. 2009 for DM, galaxies in prep) In linear theory, velocity and density fields are simply related.
