Galaxy Clustering Analysis of the Final BOSS Data Set

  • Monday November 3rd through Tuesday November 4th, 2014
  • Organizing by Ashley Ross, David Weinberg

  • The Center for Cosmology and AstroParticle Physics (CCAPP) at The Ohio State University (OSU) is holding a workshop on "Galaxy Clustering Analysis of the Final BOSS Data Set" in Columbus, Ohio on November 3-4, 2014.

  • Organized by OSU CCAPP and the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) galaxy clustering working group, this workshop will bring together researchers from around the world to finalize the analysis plans for the final BOSS galaxy data sample. BOSS data allow one to measure the distance to galaxies that are 6 billion light-years away from us to better than 1% precision using the "baryon acoustic oscillation" technique.
