Lensing magnification effects on the cosmic shear statistics

  • Takashi Hamana
  • Published 2001


Gravitational lensing causes a correlation between a population of foreground largescale structures and the observed number density of the background distant galaxies as a consequence of the flux magnification and the lensing area distortion. This correlation has not been taken into account in calculations of the theoretical predictions of the cosmic shear… (More)
