Abstract: Over the next decade, large galaxy surveys will map billions of galaxies and probe cosmic structure with high statistical precision. Their ultimate goal is to develop a comprehensive model that describes the Universe from end to end. In this talk, I will introduce two of the most powerful cosmological probes: galaxy clusters and galaxy clustering. These probes offer insights into the growth of cosmic structures spanning back up to 11 billion years. By harnessing ongoing and forthcoming galaxy surveys such as the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI), the Rubin Observatory's Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST), Subaru Prime Focus Spectrograph (PFS), and the Roman Space Telescope, we can measure the growth of structure with unprecedented precision. I will discuss the opportunities and challenges inherent in these galaxy surveys.
