The halo model has become a standard framework to interpret the clustering statistics and the weak lensing signal of dark matter dominated structures, like galaxies or clusters of galaxies. I will review the halo model formalism and discuss how on-going optical wide area surveys like KiDS, DES, HSC and complete spectroscopic surveys like GAMA allow to test in great details some of the main...

Recent estimates of the extragalactic radio background revealed the probable presence of a population of faint but numerous sources contributing for the majority of the background emission. In this talk, I will discuss how to test this hypothesis by studying 1-point and 2-point correlations in the radio sky. I will outline relevant current data and analysis, and highlight forecasts for the SKA...
