Abstract

We investigate the potential of the higher multipole power spectra of the galaxy distribution in redshift space as a cosmological probe on halo scales. Based on the fact that a halo model explains well the multipole power spectra of the luminous red galaxy sample in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, we focus our investigation on the random motions of the satellite luminous red galaxies that determine the higher multipole spectra at large wave numbers. We show that our theoretical model fits the higher multipole spectra at large wave numbers from N-body numerical simulations, and we apply these results for testing the gravity theory and the velocity structure of galaxies on the halo scales. In this analysis, we use the multipole spectra P4(k) and P6(k) on the small scales of the range of wave number 0.3≤k/[hMpc-1]≤0.6, which is in contrast to the usual method of testing gravity by targeting the linear growth rate on very large scales. We demonstrate that our method could be useful for testing gravity on the halo scales.
