In the present work, we propose a new method aiming at extracting the kinetic Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (KSZ) temper- ature fluctuations embedded in the primary anisotropies of the cosmic microwave background (CMB). We base our study on simulated maps without noise and we consider very simple and minimal assumptions. Our method essentially takes benefit from the spatial correlation between KSZ and the Compton parameter distribution associated with the thermal Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (TSZ) effect of the… CONTINUE READING
