Martin White (UCB) "The cosmological legacy of Planck "

September 20, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

ABSTRACT:
The anisotropies in the cosmic microwave background radiation have become our most important cosmological fossil. The study of these “echoes of gravity” has revolutionized cosmology, stringently tested our models and allowed precise measurement of a host of important cosmological parameters. I will discuss how far we’ve come since the early detections of CMB anisotropies and in particular the cosmological legacy of the Planck mission.
