Description

The Effective Field Theory of Large Scale Structures (EFTofLSS) is a novel research program that aims at developing a systematic understanding of large scale structures at long distances by expanding in the smallness of the long wavelength perturbations. This program is particular relevant given the importance of large scale structure surveys for our progress in cosmological information in the next decade. Many interesting and encouraging results have been obtained so far in the context of the EFTofLSS. I will present a general overview and the most recent developments.
