The thermal Sunyaev-Zel’dovich (tSZ) effect is a powerful probe of the evolution of structures in the universe, and is thus highly sensitive to cosmological parameters σ8 and Ωm, though its power is hampered by the current uncertainties on the cluster mass calibration. In this analysis we revisit constraints on these cosmological parameters as well as the hydrostatic mass bias, by performing (i) a robust estimation of the tSZ power-spectrum, (ii) a complete modeling and analysis of the tSZ bispectrum, and (iii) a combined analysis of galaxy clusters number count, tSZ power spectrum, and tSZ bispectrum. From this analysis, we derive as final constraints σ8 = 0.79 ± 0.02, Ωm = 0.29 ± 0.02, and (1−b) = 0.71 ± 0.07. These results favor a high value for the hydrostatic mass bias compared to numerical simulations and weak-lensing based estimations. They are furthermore consistent with both previous tSZ analyses, CMB derived cosmological parameters, and ancillary estimations of the hydrostatic mass bias.
