Identifying the Physics Potential of Multi-wavelength and Multi-messenger Anisotropy Studies

  • CCAPP is hosting a one-day workshop on identifying the physics potential of multi-wavelength/multi-messenger anisotropy studies on Wednesday, June 23, 2010.

  • The aim of the workshop is to gather researchers working on anisotropy studies of data sets covering a large energy range (photons from microwave to gamma-rays, as well as neutrinos and charged particles) to discuss the cosmological and astrophysical information obtainable from anisotropy studies, highlight new analysis approaches, and identify opportunities for combining information from multiple data sets.

  • Topics include:
  • - evaluation of anisotropy metrics, including the angular power spectrum and the 1-point PDF (fluctuation analysis)
  • - predictions and measurements of the anisotropy properties of various source classes
  • - experimental approaches to anisotropy analysis
  • - cross-correlation of data sets
  • - combining data sets for multi-wavelength/multi-messenger anisotropy studies
  • Experimental data sets:
  • - Auger (ultra-high-energy cosmic rays)
  • - Milagro (TeV photons and cosmic rays)
  • - IceCube (GeV - TeV neutrinos)
  • - The Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (gamma-ray photons and cosmic-ray electrons)
  • - WMAP (microwaves)
  • - Planck (microwaves)
  • Please contact Jennifer Siegal-Gaskins ( if you have any questions or if you are interested in attending.
