    Abstract

    This thesis presents a next-generation toolkit for cosmological structure formation. The toolkit comprises three tools: hmf, a flexible calculator for halo mass functions (HMFs), the MRP for analytic characterisation of HMFs, and halomod, a comprehensive halo model calculator.

    Each is accompanied by an application designed to illustrate the tool's utility for next-generation surveys, with a focus on the nature of dark matter.

    With these surveys promising to revolutionise our understanding of cosmology, this toolkit aims to be instrumental in extracting maximal scientific benefits from the ever-increasing flow of data.
