EPFL/CERN/UNIGE Discussion Sessions

Friday, 13 December 2013 from to (Europe/Zurich)
at UNIGE ( UNIGE )
Description To prompt collaboration among the different groups in cosmology in the Léman area, we hold a common discussion session every month and a half. In those, recent news in the field are addressed by experts at a level that we can all understand. Please, suggest papers/subjects to the local organizers.

The papers to discuss are:

1.a) Cosmic Degeneracies I: Joint N-body Simulations of Modified Gravity and Massive Neutrinos (http://arxiv.org/abs/1311.2588)
1.b) Cosmology with massive neutrinos I: towards a realistic modelling of the relation between matter, haloes and galaxies (http://arxiv.org/pdf/1311.0866.pdf)
To be presented by Julien Lesgourgues (CERN & EPFL)

2) Measurement of Neutrino Masses from Relative Velocities (http://arxiv.org/abs/1311.3422)
To be presented by Thomas Tram (EPFL)

3) Search for primordial non-Gaussianity in the quasars of SDSS-III BOSS DR9 (http://arxiv.org/abs/1310.6716)  
To be presented by Vincent Desjacques (UNIGE)
