%X We explore the cosmological implications of anisotropic clusteringmeasurements in configuration space of the final galaxy samples fromData Release 12 of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey III Baryon OscillationSpectroscopic Survey. We implement a new detailed modelling of theeffects of non-linearities, bias and redshift-space distortions that canbe used to extract unbiased cosmological information from ourmeasurements for scales s ≳ 20 h^{-1} Mpc. We combined theinformation from Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) with thelatest cosmic microwave background (CMB) observations and Type Iasupernovae samples and found no significant evidence for a deviationfrom the Λ cold dark matter (ΛCDM) cosmological model. Inparticular, these data sets can constrain the dark energyequation-of-state parameter to w_{DE} = -0.996 ± 0.042when to be assumed time independent, the curvature of the Universe toΩ_{k} = -0.0007 ± 0.0030 and the sum of theneutrino masses to ∑m_{ν} < 0.25 eV at 95 per centconfidence levels. We explore the constraints on the growth rate ofcosmic structures assuming f(z) =Ω_{m}(z)^{γ} and obtain γ = 0.609± 0.079, in good agreement with the predictions of generalrelativity of γ = 0.55. We compress the information of ourclustering measurements into constraints on the parameter combinationsD_{V}(z)/r_{d}, F_{AP}(z) andfσ_{8}(z) at z_{eff} = 0.38, 0.51 and 0.61 withtheir respective covariance matrices and find good agreement with thepredictions for these parameters obtained from the best-fittingΛCDM model to the CMB data from the Planck satellite. This paperis part of a set that analyses the final galaxy clustering data set fromBOSS. The measurements and likelihoods presented here are combined withothers by Alam et al. to produce the final cosmological constraints fromBOSS.
