  • We perform a cosmological parameter analysis of the 75 deg2 CTIO lensing survey in conjunction with cosmic microwave background (CMB) and Type Ia supernovae data. For ΛCDM cosmologies, we find that the amplitude of the power spectrum at low redshift is given by σ8 = 0.81 (95% confidence level), where the error bound includes both statistical and systematic errors. The total of all systematic errors is smaller than the statistical errors, but they do make up a significant fraction of the error… CONTINUE READING
