In this paper we use the same method of analysis already adopted in the Euclid Red Book, which is based on the Fisher matrix approach. Based on our analytical estimate of the cluster selection function in the photometric Euclid survey, we forecast the constraints on cosmological parameters corresponding to different extensions of the standard Λ cold dark matter model. Using only Euclid clusters, we find that the amplitude of the matter power spectrum will be constrained to ∆σ<SUB>8</SUB> = 0.0014 and the mass density parameter to ∆Ω<SUB>m</SUB> = 0.0011. The dynamical evolution of dark energy will be constrained to ∆w<SUB>0</SUB> = 0.03 and ∆w<SUB>a</SUB> = 0.2 with free curvature Ω<SUB>k</SUB>, resulting in a (w<SUB>0</SUB>, w<SUB>a</SUB>) figure of merit (FoM) of 291. In combination with Planck cosmic microwave background (CMB) constraints, the amplitude of primordial non-Gaussianity will be constrained to ∆f<SUB>NL</SUB> ≃ 6.6 for the local shape scenario. The growth factor parameter γ, which signals deviations from general relativity, will be constrained to ∆γ = 0.02, and the neutrino density parameter to ∆Ω<SUB>ν</SUB> = 0.0013 (or ∆∑m<SUB>ν</SUB> = 0.01). Including the Planck CMB covariance matrix improves dark energy constraints to ∆w<SUB>0</SUB> = 0.02, ∆w<SUB>a</SUB> = 0.07, and a FoM = 802. Knowledge of the observable-cluster mass scaling relation is crucial to reach these accuracies. Imaging and spectroscopic capabilities of Euclid will enable internal mass calibration from weak lensing and the dynamics of cluster galaxies, supported by external cluster surveys.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12386/24476||URL:||https://academic.oup.com/mnras/article/459/2/1764/2594990||ISSN:||0035-8711||DOI:||10.1093/mnras/stw630||Bibcode ADS:||2016MNRAS.459.1764S||Fulltext:||open|
