CMB-S4 Science Book
The purpose of Science Book is to set the scientific goals for CMB-S4 and (eventually) the instrumental configuration required to achieve them. This is of course an iterative process, involving detailed simulations as well as cost considerations. So, at this time the Science Book is a working document with this first iteration focused primarily on defining the possible science reach in several areas, along with the simulations needed to refine science case and set the specifications of the needed measurements. This will set the stage for defining the instrument in the next iteration of the Science Book.
