The landscape of cosmological experiments in the next decade will include several new surveys. Large-Scale Structure surveys will reach full maturity and take the lead in constraining cosmological models. The first detections of gravitational waves from the merger of compact objects opened up a new window to investigate the Universe, in ways and regimes previously unexplored, delivering new insights for astrophysics and fundamental physics.
In this talk I will present ways to combine these two observables and use such cross-correlation to investigate cosmological models, with particular focus on constraining the existence and abundance of primordial black holes and testing early Universe physics.
