Abstract: General relativistic cosmology cannot be reduced to linear relativistic perturbations superposed on an isotropic and homogeneous (Friedmann-Robertson-Walker) background, even though such a simple scheme has been successfully applied to analyse a large variety of phenomena (such as cosmic microwave background primary anisotropies, matter clustering on large scales, weak gravitational lensing, etc). The general idea of going beyond this simple paradigm is what characterizes most of the efforts made in recent years: the study of second and higher-order cosmological perturbations including all general relativistic contributions also in connection with primordial non-Gaussianities the idea of defining large-scale structure observables directly from a general relativistic perspective, the various attempts to go beyond the Newtonian approximation in the study of nonlinear gravitational dynamics, by using e.g., post-Newtonian treatments, are all examples of this general trend. Here we summarize some of these directions of investigation, with the aim of emphasizing future prospects in this area of cosmology, both from a theoretical and observational point of view.
