We search for planar deviations of statistical isotropy in the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) data by applying a recently introduced angular-planar statistics both to full-sky and to masked temperature maps, including in our analysis the e ect of the residual foreground contamination and systematics in the foreground removing process as sources… CONTINUE READING
