Moving around the cosmological parameter space: a nonlinear power spectrum reconstruction based on high-resolution cosmic responses

Abstract : We present numerical measurements of the power spectrum response function of the gravitational growth of cosmic structures, defined as the functional derivative of the nonlinear spectrum with respect to the linear counterpart, based on 1, 400 cosmological simulations. We develop a simple analytical model based on a regularization of the standard perturbative calculation. Using the model prediction, we show that this function gives a natural way to interpolate the nonlinear power spectrum over cosmological parameter space from single or multi-step interpolations. We demonstrate that once an accurate numerical spectrum template is available for one (or a small number of) cosmological model(s), it doubles the range in k for which percent level accuracy can be obtained even for large change in the cosmological parameters. The python package RESPRESSO we developed to make those predictions is publicly available.
