We continue the analysis of non-Gaussianities in the cosmic microwave background by means of the scaling index method by applying this method on the single Q, V, W bands and the co-added VW band of the five-year data of the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe. We compare each of the results with 1000 Monte Carlo simulations mimicking the Gaussian properties of the best fitting A cold dark matter model. Based on the scaling indices, scale-dependent empirical probability distributions, moments… Expand
