How to estimate the 3D power spectrum of the Lyman-$\alpha$ forest

29 Dec 2017 Font-Ribera Andreu McDonald Patrick Slosar Anže

We derive and numerically implement an algorithm for estimating the 3D power spectrum of the Lyman-$\alpha$ (Ly-$\alpha$) forest flux fluctuations. The algorithm exploits the unique geometry of Ly-$\alpha$ forest data to efficiently measure the cross-spectrum between lines of sight as a function of parallel wavenumber, transverse separation and redshift...
