UMICH-2015: CMB-Lensing

From CMB-S4 wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Lensing measurements/techniques and the science they impact:

  1. cmb auto spectrum (neutrino mass)
  2. cmb halo lensing (dark energy)
  3. delensing (inflation)
  4. cmb lens x galaxy survey (dark energy/neutrino mass)
  5. cmb lens x optical lens (dark energy)

Challenges/issues to consider for each lensing measurement above:

  • the specific science gain from each lensing measurement
  • instrument sensitivity/resolution/frequency requirements
  • foreground impact and control
  • systematic effects
    • robustness of lensing estimators
    • non-linearity of structure formation
    • higher order corrections
  • simulation requirements for each lensing measurement
  • survey area requirements / overlapping external data sets
