Angular correlation studies of the cosmic X-ray background (CXB) fluctuations are becoming a new frontier of performing large-scale structure (LSS) studies with X-ray surveys, thanks to the accurate knowledge of X-ray luminosity functions, growing X-ray survey areas, and the high angular resolution of the current and future generations of X-ray telescopes. These studies give us access to faint...

We present a method to test the isotropy of the magnitude-redshift relation of Type Ia Supernovae (SNe Ia) and single out the most discrepant direction (in terms of the signal-to-noise ratio) with respect to the all-sky data. Our technique accounts for possible directional variations of the corrections for SNe Ia and yields all-sky maps of the best-fit cosmological parameters with arbitrary...
