The low multipole anomalies of the Cosmic Microwave Background has received much attention during the last few years. It is still not ascertained whether these anomalies are indeed primordial or the result of systematics or foregrounds. An example of a foreground, which could generate some non-Gaussian and statistically anisotropic features at low multipole range, is the very symmetric Kuiper Belt in the outer solar system. In this paper, expanding upon the methods presented in [1], we… 

North-South non-Gaussian asymmetry in Planck CMB maps

We report the results of a statistical analysis performed with the four foreground-cleaned Planck maps by means of a suitably defined local-variance estimator. Our analysis shows a clear dipolar

Planck2013 results. XXIII. Isotropy and statistics of the CMB

We test the statistical isotropy and Gaussianity of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) anisotropies using observations made by the Planck satellite. Our results are based mainly on the full Planck

A comparison of anisotropic statistical properties of CMB maps based on the WMAP and planck space mission data

We compare the anisotropic properties of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) maps constructed based on the data of NASA’s WMAP (9th year of observations) and ESA’s Planck (2015 release) space

The effects of the small-scale DM power on the cosmological neutral hydrogen (HI) distribution at high redshifts

The particle nature of dark matter remains a mystery. In this paper, we consider two dark matter models—Late Forming Dark Matter (LFDM) and Ultra-Light Axion (ULA) models—where the matter power

Planck 2013 results. XIV. Zodiacal emission

The Planck satellite provides a set of all-sky maps spanning nine frequencies from 30 GHz to 857 GHz, with an unprecedented combination of sensitivity and angular resolution. Planets, minor bodies,

Two-dimensional spectral estimators of statistical anisotropy and search for the isolated directions in Planck mission data

We describe a method for the analysis of homogeneity of the microwave background maps based on the behavior of the angular power spectrum C(ℓ) and parity parameter P. The estimator is built using the

Statistics of the Planck CMB Signal in direction of gamma-ray bursts from the BATSE and BeppoSAX catalogs

Distribution of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) from catalogs of the BATSE and BeppoSAX space observatories relative to the cosmic microwave background (CMB) data by Planck space mission is studied. Three

Microwave thermal emission from the zodiacal dust cloud predicted with contemporary meteoroid models

Predictions of the microwave thermal emission from the interplanetary dustcloud are made using several contemporary meteoroid models to construct thedistributions of cross-section area of dust in

Correlation properties of the WMAP CMB and 2MRS and SDSS catalogs at different redshifts

We have calculated mosaic correlation maps based on the ILCWMAP microwave background data and infrared and optical extragalactic object positions according to the 2MRS catalog and the SDSS survey

Large-scale anomalies of the CMB in the curvaton scenario

We extend the curvaton scenario presented by Erickcek et al. [1,2], to explain how the even-odd multipole asymmetry of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) (also called parity asymmetry, [3,4]) and

A simple six-parameter ΛCDM model provides a successful fit to WMAP data. This holds both when the WMAP data are analyzed alone or in combination with other cosmological data. Even so, it is
