Beyond standard power spectrum analyses of large scale structure (LSS) clustering data-sets, higher order statistics provide a unique window on the non-linear evolution of the galaxy/matter density field, both due to gravitational collapse and potentially also due to primordial non-Gaussianity. In the first part of the talk I will show how to efficiently compress the bispectrum data-vector (lowest higher order statistic) in order to fully exploit its potential to improve cosmological parameters constraints. I will then present the first steps towards including the trispectrum in LSS analyses and discuss its added benefit with respect to power spectrum and bispectrum.
