The possibility that the cosmic variance outliers present in the recently released Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) multipole moments are due to oscillations in the primordial power spectrum is investigated. Since the most important contribution to the WMAP likelihood originates from the outliers at a relatively small angular scale (around the first Doppler peak), special attention is paid to these in contrast with previous studies on the subject which have concentrated on the large… Expand
Localized correlated features in the CMB power spectrum and primordial bispectrum from a transient reduction in the speed of sound
The first year of observations by the Planck satellite mission shows that the cosmic microwave background fluctuations are consistent with Gaussian statistics in the primordial perturbations, a keyExpand
Exploring the superimposed oscillations parameter space
The space of parameters characterizing an inflationary primordial power spectrum with small superimposed oscillations is explored using Monte Carlo methods. The most interesting region correspondingExpand
WMAP7 constraints on oscillations in the primordial power spectrum
We use the 7-year Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP7) data to place constraints on oscillations supplementing an almost scale-invariant primordial power spectrum. Such oscillations areExpand
Searching for oscillations in the primordial power spectrum. II. Constraints from Planck data
We apply our recently developed code to search for resonance features in the Planck CMB temperature data. We search both for log spaced oscillations or linear spaced oscillations and compare ourExpand
Parity asymmetry in the CMBR temperature power spectrum
We study the power asymmetry between even and odd multipoles in the multipolar expansion of cosmic microwave background temperature data from the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP), recentlyExpand
Primordial power spectrum from WMAP
Increasingly accurate measurements of the anisotropy in the temperature of the cosmic microwave background ~CMB! has ushered in an era of precision cosmology. A golden decade of CMB anisotropyExpand

Multiple inflation and the WMAP 'glitches' II. Data analysis and cosmological parameter extraction
Detailed analyses of the WMAP data indicate possible oscillatory features in the primordial curvature perturbation, which moreover appears to be suppressed beyond the present Hubble radius. SuchExpand
Primordial features from linear to nonlinear scales
Sharp features in the primordial power spectrum are a powerful window into the inflationary epoch. To date, the cosmic microwave background (CMB) has offered the most sensitive avenue to search forExpand
Modeling the large-scale power deficit
We investigate a set of cosmological models for which the primordial power spectrum has a large-scale power deficit. The standard power-law spectrum is subject to long-wavelength modificationsExpand
