Abstract

We investigate the damping of the baryon acoustic oscillation (BAO) signature in the matter power spectrum due to the quasi-non-linear clustering of density perturbations. On the basis of the third-order perturbation theory, we construct a fitting formula for the damping in an analytic way. This demonstrates that the damping is closely related to the growth factor and the amplitude of the matter power spectrum. Then, we investigate the feasibility of constraining the growth factor through a measurement of the damping of the BAO signature. An extension of our formula including higher order corrections of density perturbations is also discussed.
