Many recent analyses have indicated that large scale Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) data display anomalies that appear inconsistent with the standard cosmological paradigm. However, the effects of foreground contamination, which require elimination of some fraction of the data, have not been fully investigated due to the complexity in the analysis. Here we develop a general formalism of how to incorporate these effects into any analysis of this type. Our approach is to compute the… Expand
