Archeops is a balloon-borne instrument dedicated to measure the cosmic microwave background (CMB) temperature anisotropies. It has, in the millimetre domain (from 143 to 545 GHz), a high angular resolution (about 10 arcminutes) in order to constrain high l multipoles, as well as a large sky coverage fraction (30%) in order to minimize the cosmic variance. It has linked, before WMAP, Cobe large angular scales to the first acoustic peak region. From its results, inflation motivated cosmologies… Expand

CMB lensing forecasts for constraining the primordial perturbations: adding to the CMB temperature and polarization information
We forecast how current ({\planck}) and future ({\prism}) cosmic microwave background (CMB) experiments constrain the adiabatic mode and its admixtures with primordial isocurvature modes, usingExpand
Optimisation of the Population Monte Carlo algorithm: Application to constraining isocurvature models with cosmic microwave background data
We optimise the parameters of the Population Monte Carlo algorithm using numerical simulations. The optimisation is based on an efficiency statistic related to the number of samples evaluated priorExpand


Archeops: a high resolution, large sky coverage balloon experiment for mapping cosmic microwave background anisotropies
Archeops is a balloon-borne instrument dedicated to measuring cosmic microwave background (CMB) temperature anisotropies at high angular resolution (∼8′) over a large fraction (∼25%) of the sky inExpand
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
Final Results from the Hubble Space Telescope Key Project to Measure the Hubble Constant
We present here the final results of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Key Project to measure the Hubble constant. We summarize our method, the results, and the uncertainties, tabulate our revisedExpand
A measurement by BOOMERANG of multiple peaks in the angular power spectrum of the cosmic microwave background
This paper presents a measurement of the angular power spectrum of the cosmic microwave background from l = 75 to l = 1025 (~10' to 24) from a combined analysis of four 150 GHz channels in theExpand
Measurements of $\Omega$ and $\Lambda$ from 42 high redshift supernovae
We report measurements of the mass density, Omega_M, and cosmological-constant energy density, Omega_Lambda, of the universe based on the analysis of 42 Type Ia supernovae discovered by the SupernovaExpand

We describe a fast and accurate method for estimation of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) anisotropy angular power spectrum—Monte Carlo Apodized Spherical Transform Estimator (MASTER).Expand
The Deuterium to Hydrogen Abundance Ratio toward a Fourth QSO: HS 0105+1619
We report the measurement of the primordial D/H abundance ratio toward QSO HS 0105+1619. The column density of the neutral hydrogen in the z 2.536 Lyman limit system is high, log N = 19.422 ± 0.009Expand
