The Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) is a part of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey III (SDSS-III, 2009-2014), and has provided the largest-ever three-dimensional map of nearly 1.2 million galaxies up to z~0.7. The main goal of the BOSS survey is to measure the cosmological distance and hence cosmic expansion history by making use of the scale of the Baryon Acoustic Oscillations (BAOs) as a standard ruler, and to access the growth history of the large-scale structure of the Universe by measuring the so-called Redshift-Space Distortion (RSD). In this talk, we are going to overview the final results on our analysis of BAO and RSD from the data release 12 (DR12) in BOSS . If time is allowed, we also discuss the issues in our understanding of the massive galaxies in BOSS from a galaxy-halo connection point of view.
