The promise of CMB anistropy observations is the precise
determination of cosmological parameters. To accomplish this, we use
likelihood analysis. Here, we see several examples of
likelihood contours for various experiments and slices through parameter
We also use related techniques to determine the power spectrum of CMB anisotropies.
|Mapmaking and filtering|
|We also have computer-intensive techniques for transforming raw experimental data into maps of the CMB sky.|
|Combinations of these techniques are necessary in order to deal with foreground contamination, which is expected to become a bigger problem in upcoming high-resolution experiments.|
