Radical Compression of Cosmic Microwave Background Data

Abstract

Powerful constraints on theories can already be inferred from existing CMB anisotropy data. But performing an exact analysis of available data is a complicated task and may become prohibitively so for upcoming experiments with & 10 pixels. We present a method for approximating the likelihood that takes power spectrum constraints, e.g., “band-powers”, as… (More)
