Likelihood distribution for models with cosmological constant from COBE data

Abstract

Using COBE–DMR 4–year data, we find a general expression yielding the likelihood distribution in the 3–dimensional parameter space spanned by the spectral index n, the spectral amplitude a10 and the false–vacuum density parameter ΩΛ. Using such simple expression, the range of possible normalizations, within a given likelihood interval from top–likelihood… (More)
