The Evolutionary Map of the Universe (EMU) is an all-sky survey in radio-continuum which uses the Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP).

We find that EMU could measure the dark energy equation of state parameters around 35% more precisely than existing constraints, and that the constraints on $f_{ m NL}$ and modified gravity parameters will improve up to a factor $sim2$ with respect to Planck and redshift space distortions measurements.

Abstract

The Evolutionary Map of the Universe (EMU) is an all-sky survey in radio-continuum which uses the Australian SKA Pathfinder (ASKAP). Using galaxy angular power spectrum and the integrated Sachs-Wolfe effect, we study the potential of EMU to constrain models beyond $Lambda$CDM (i.e., local primordial non-Gaussianity, dynamical dark energy, spatial curvature and deviations from general relativity), for different design sensitivities. We also include a multi-tracer analysis, distinguishing between star-forming galaxies and galaxies with an active galactic nucleus, to further improve EMU's potential. We find that EMU could measure the dark energy equation of state parameters around 35% more precisely than existing constraints, and that the constraints on $f_{ m NL}$ and modified gravity parameters will improve up to a factor $sim2$ with respect to Planck and redshift space distortions measurements. With this work we demonstrate the promising potential of EMU to contribute to our understanding of the Universe....
