We present new arcminute-resolution maps of the Cosmic Microwave Background temperature and polarization anisotropy from the Atacama Cosmology Telescope, using data taken from 2013–2016 at 98 and 150 GHz. The maps cover more than 17,000 deg2, the deepest 600 deg2 with noise levels below 10μK-arcmin. We use the power spectrum derived from almost 6,000 deg2 of these maps to constrain cosmology. The ACT data enable a measurement of the angular scale of features in both the divergence-like… 
Neutrino Mass Bounds in the Era of Tension Cosmology
The measurements of cosmic microwave background (CMB) anisotropies made by the Planck satellite provide extremely tight upper bounds on the total neutrino mass scale (Σm ν < 0.26 eV at 95% C.L.).
A buyer’s guide to the Hubble constant
Since the expansion of the universe was first established by Edwin Hubble and Georges Lemaître about a century ago, the Hubble constant $$H_0$$ H 0 which measures its rate has been of great interest
Early-Universe-Physics Independent and Uncalibrated Cosmic Standards: Constraint on Ωm and Implications for the Hubble Tension
To further shed light on whether pre-recombination models can resolve the Hubble tension, we explore constraints on the cosmic background evolution that are insensitive to early-universe physics. The
Exploring an early dark energy solution to the Hubble tension with Planck and SPTPol data
A promising idea to resolve the long standing Hubble tension is to postulate a new subdominant dark-energy-like component in the pre-recombination Universe which is traditionally termed as the Early
Dynamical inflection point inflation
We provide a mechanism to obtain multiple inflection points for the inflaton potential based on the Coleman-Weinberg potential. The key ingredient is the existence of zeros of the inflaton quartic

This paper presents a maximum-likelihood algorithm for combining sky maps with disparate sky coverage, angular resolution and spatially varying anisotropic noise into a single map of the sky. We use
