The discovery of the accelerated expansion of the Universe has revolutionized the field of physical cosmology. Understanding the origin of this phenomenon is one of the most outstanding problems in physics today. This situation has led to the construction of a new generation of galaxy surveys, aimed at shedding light on this problem. The ongoing Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) is an example of these surveys. BOSS is probing the large-scale structure of the Universe with unprecedented precision, providing new insights on the physics behind cosmic acceleration.
