Abstract: Intergalactic Medium (IGM)-based cosmology established itself as a solid cosmological probe with the wide success of the SDSS-III Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS), and now recently reconfirmed with the SDSS-IV extended-BOSS (eBOSS). With the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI) survey officially built and imminently resuming operations, we are taking a look at the accomplishments of SDSS-III/IV with regards to IGM-based cosmology and discussing the exciting science and new statistical challenges in the era of DESI.
