Prof. Scott Dodelson (Carnegie Mellon U.)

Description

Progress in cosmology over the past few decades has been quantified by the extent to which we can accurately measure “two-point functions” such as the power spectrum of galaxies; the shear-shear- correlation function; galaxy-galaxy lensing; and most famously the C_l’s of the anisotropies in the cosmic microwave background. New statistics are emerging though that offer potential to infer even more information about the universe. I will open by asking your opinions about what information is most important that is not listed above. Then, I will give my opinion and share some proposals for extending this relatively new class of statistics to learn about the large-scale structure of the universe.
