Towards Fundamental Physics from the Cosmic Microwave Background
  OKC colloquia

Tuesday 11 October 2016
from 13:15 to 14:30
at FB42
Speaker : Hiranya Peiris (Stockholm university)
Abstract : Surveys of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) carry immense promise for measurements of new physics beyond the Standard Models of cosmology and particle physics. I will present an overview of current cosmological constraints from the CMB, and survey the capabilities of upcoming experiments, taking account of Galactic foregrounds and the effect of lensing by intervening large-scale structure. I will present some recent results that highlight the science enabled by combining CMB data with large galaxy surveys. I will comment on some of the experimental and methodological innovations that are needed to realise the promise of upcoming surveys.
