CCAPP Seminar: "Measuring BAO in galaxy surveys" Angela Burden (Yale)

December 5, 2016
Tuesday, November 1, 2016 - 11:30am to 12:30pm
PRB 4138
Oval

I will give a brief introduction on how baryon acoustic oscillations measured in galaxy surveys are used to make cosmological measurements. I will then talk about the reconstruction technique used in the BOSS survey and present some of the cosmological measurements made from the final data set. Finally I will talk about the upcoming DESI survey and describe preliminary work on techniques we hope to use to ensure our BAO measurements are not biased by the instrument.
