Constraints on Cosmological Parameters from MAXIMA-1
We set new constraints on a seven-dimensional space of cosmological parameters within the class of inflationary adiabatic models. We use the angular power spectrum of the cosmic microwave backgroundExpand

Cosmology from MAXIMA-1, BOOMERANG, and COBE DMR cosmic microwave background observations.
Recent results from BOOMERANG-98 and MAXIMA-1, taken together with COBE DMR, provide consistent and high signal-to-noise measurements of the cosmic microwave background power spectrum at sphericalExpand

A High Spatial Resolution Analysis of the MAXIMA-1 Cosmic Microwave Background Anisotropy Data
We extend the analysis of the MAXIMA-1 cosmic microwave background data to smaller angular scales. MAXIMA, a bolometric balloon-borne experiment, mapped a 124 deg2 region of the sky with 10'Expand

Spherical needlets for cosmic microwave background data analysis
We discuss Spherical Needlets and their properties. Needlets are a form of spherical wavelets which do not rely on any kind of tangent plane approximation and enjoy good localization properties inExpand

Planck early results - I. The Planck mission
The European Space Agency's Planck satellite was launched on 14 May 2009, and has been surveying the sky stably and continuously since 13 August 2009. Its performance is well in line withExpand

MAXIMA: A balloon-borne cosmic microwave background anisotropy experiment
We describe the Millimeter wave Anisotropy eXperiment IMaging Array (MAXIMA), a balloon-borne experiment which measured the temperature anisotropy of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) on angularExpand

Planck early results. XVIII. The power spectrum of cosmic infrared background anisotropies
Using Planck maps of six regions of low Galactic dust emission with a total area of about 140 deg 2 , we determine the angular power spectra of cosmic infrared background (CIB) anisotropies fromExpand

Cosmological parameters and the WMAP data revisited
Several recent papers have made claims about the detection of an asymmetric distribution of large-scale power in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) anisotropy as measured by the WMAP satellite. InExpand

Planck pre-launch status: the Planck-LFI programme
This paper provides an overview of the Low Frequency Instrument (LFI) programme within the ESA Planck mission. The LFI instrument has been developed to produce high precision maps of the microwaveExpand
