Abstract

Higher order spatial statistics characterize non-Gaussian aspects of random fields, which are ubiquitous in cosmology: from the cosmic microwave background (CMB) to the large-scale structure (LSS) of the universe. These random fields are rich in their properties; they can be continuous or discrete; can have one through three, or even more dimensions; their degree of non-Gaussianity ranges from tiny to significant. Yet, there are several techniques and ideas, which are applicable to virtually all cosmological random fields, be it Lyman-α forests, LSS, or CMB.
