Constraints on scale-dependent non-Gaussianity

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We review why detection of non-Gaussianity in the spectrum of primordial fluctuations would be an indication of interesting inflationary physics and discuss the observational constraints on a simple type of scale-dependent non-Gaussianity. In particular, if the amount non-Gaussianity increases during inflation then observations on scales smaller than those probed by the Cosmic Microwave Background may provide important constraints. Clusters number counts can be a useful tool in this context.
