Catalogue data

AbstractOur understanding of the universe has made great progress recently thanks to the combination of several cosmological probes such as the cosmic microwave background, galaxy clustering, gravitational lensing, and supernovae. After a review of cosmology, this course will cover the physics of these different probes along with their application, combination and use to measure cosmological parameters.
ObjectiveThe goal of this course is to provide an understanding of the physics, application and combination of cosmological probes, and highlight current research topics.
Prerequisites / NoticeCredits or current enrollment in Astrophysics I and II is recommended but not required.
