EPFL/CERN/UNIGE Discussion Sessions

Wednesday, 30 April 2014 from to (Europe/Zurich)
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 suggested papers so far are:

i) Baryon Acoustic Oscillations in the Ly forest of BOSS DR11 quasars 

http://arxiv.org/pdf/1404.1801.pdf

To be presented by Thimothée Delubac (EPFL)

ii) Fingerprints of Galactic Loop I on the Cosmic Microwave Background

http://arxiv.org/abs/arXiv:1404.1899

To be presented by Jan Hamann (CERN)

Other suggested papers include:
