Astro Seminar: "Overview of Planck Data and (Cosmological and Astrophyical) Results "

Wed, 11/11/2015 - 14:00 - 16:00
Graca Rocha (JPL)

In this talk I will give an overview of Planck data and Cosmological and Astrophysical results: Temperature and polarization maps of the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation anisotropies, Power Spectra, Likelihoods and Parameters estimated from both Planck frequency maps and CMB maps. Constraints on scalar spectral index, n_s, optical depth due to reionization, \tau, and the scalar to tensor ratio, r, will be presented along with constraints on Non Gausssianity, NG, of the CMB fluctuations , its isotropy and low-l (large angular scales) anomalies. In addition main astrophysical results will be presented: maps of foreground emission ( dust, synchrotron, CO, free-free emission, etc) both in temperature and polarization will be shown along with the PCSS point sources and SZ catalog.
