We show how future measurements of the SZ effect (SZE) can be used to constrain the cosmological parameters. We combine the SZ information expected from the Planck full-sky survey, N(S), where no redshift information is included, with the N(z) obtained from an optically-identified SZ-selected survey covering less than 1 % of the sky. We demonstrate how with a small subsample (� 300 clusters) of the whole SZ catalogue observed optically it is possible to drastically reduce the degeneracy among… Expand
