### Unified approach to secondary effects on the CMB B-mode polarization

• Physics
Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics
• 2021
We develop a systematic and unified approach to estimate all possible secondary (i.e. non-primordial) nonlinear effects to the cosmic microwave background (CMB) polarization, named curve-of-sight

### Constraints on τ NL from Planck temperature and polarization

• Physics
Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics
• 2022
We update constraints on the amplitude of the primordial trispectrum, using the final Planck mission temperature and polarization data. In the squeezed limit, a cosmological local trispectrum would

The recent emergence of detections of the kinetic Sunyeav-Zel'dovich (kSZ) effect through cross-correlation techniques is encouraging for the prospects of future cosmic microwave background (CMB)

### Characteristic scales during reionization

• Physics
• 2006
One of the key observables of the reionization era is the distribution of neutral and ionized gas. Recently, Furlanetto, Zaldarriaga and Hernquist developed a simple analytic model to describe the
