Model-independent cosmological constraints from the CMB

Abstract

We analyse CMB data in a manner which is as model-independent as possible. We encode the effects of late-time cosmology into a single parameter which determines the distance to the last scattering surface. We exclude low multipoles l < 40 from the analysis. We consider the WMAP5 and ACBAR data. We obtain the cosmological parameters 100ωb = 2.13±0.05, ωc = 0… (More)
