  • We present a new measurement of EG, which combines measurements of weak gravitational lensing, galaxy clustering, and redshift-space distortions. This statistic was proposed as a consistency test of General Relativity (GR) that is insensitive to linear, deterministic galaxy bias, and the matter clustering amplitude. We combine deep imaging data from KiDS with overlapping spectroscopy from 2dFLenS, BOSS DR12, and GAMA and find EG(z = 0.267) = 0.43 ± 0.13 (GAMA), EG(z = 0.305) = 0.27 ± 0.08 (LOWZ… CONTINUE READING
