Aims. We investigate the performance of an analytic model of the 3D matter distribution, which combines perturbation theory with halo models, for weak-lensing configuration-space statistics.
Methods. We compared our predictions for the weak-lensing convergence two-point and three-point correlation functions with numerical simulations and fitting formulas proposed in previous works. We also considered the second- and third-order moments of the smoothed convergence and of the aperture-mass.
Results. As in our previous study of Fourier-space weak-lensing statistics, we find that our model agrees better with simulations than previously published fitting formulas. Moreover, we recover the dependence on cosmology of these weak-lensing statistics and we can describe multi-scale moments. This approach allows us to obtain the quantitative relationship between these integrated weak-lensing statistics and the various contributions to the underlying 3D density fluctuations, decomposed over perturbative, two-halo, or one-halo terms.
Key words: gravitational lensing: weak / large-scale structure of Universe
