We consider the CMB bispectrum signal induced by structure formation through the correlation between the Integrated Sachs-Wolfe and the weak lensing effect. We investigate how the bispectrum knowledge can improve our knowledge of the most important cosmological parameters, focusing on the dark energy ones. The bispectrum signal arises at intermediate redshifts, being null at present and infinity, and is characterized by a large scale regime (dominated by linear dynamics of cosmological perturbation) and a small scale one (dominated by density perturbations in a non-linear regime); on the other hand, the effect induced by dark energy on the power spectrum is mostly geometrical and imprinted at redshift close to the present. Because of this, the knowledge of power spectrum and bispectrum yield two complementary informations at very different cosmological epochs, particularly suitable to extract informations about the onset of the cosmic acceleration and dark energy properties that provide it. In order to quantify how much the bispectrum can help the power spectrum in constraining the dark energy parameters, we choose a fiducial model on a three-dimensional space including the following dark energy parameters: dark energy density ΩV; dark energy equation of state today w0 and dark energy equation of state in the past w∞ (w∞ - w0 is related to the first derivative of equation of state). Then we simulate a likelihood analysis showing how contour levels become narrower when bispectrum is included. Preliminary results suggest a consistent improvement on the estimation of dark energy abundance and on dynamical properties of the equation of state. This indicates that the knowledge of the bispectrum in future high resolution and high sensitivity CMB observations could yield a substantial improvement with respect to the traditional analysis based on the power spectrum only.
