Bad realizations in gsync/gdust sims
November 9 2018, Clem Pryke
Ben noticed that there are some realizations of model 04.00 (Gaussian sync/dust) which are bad fits in the parametric re-analysis . It was then realized that these are clearly visible in the final pager and should have been noticed earlier . Further the exact same pattern of badness can be seen in the corresponding 02.00 plot .
I traced the problem to the gsync/map and gdust/map files. The corresponding alm files from which they were generated are OK. Somehow the alm read-in failed resulting in the E&B alm's being all zero - and in a few cases only the E. We can detect these bad realizations by reading in each map in turn and taking the rms of the Q and U maps. The scatter plots below show the results. There are some realizations which have zero for Q and U rms and some which have a suppressed value. I make a simple statistic to find these as the red line in each panel.
The complete list of bad realizations with zero based indexing (same as the filenames) is below. These need to be screened out of all .00 re-analysis results so far, and also .07 since this is built from the same maps. Model .05 is built from the alms and is not effected as we can see in the first link above. Before any future round of sims these maps will be regenerated to properly fix the problem.
