  • NASA/WMAP science teamTotal energy density Baryonic matter density Dawn of Precision cosmology !!Dark energy density Good old Cosmology, New trend !

  • Planck Surveyor SatelliteEuropean Space Agency: Launch 2008

  • CMB Task force report 2005Near future : High resolution Cl (SPT)

  • Who ordered Dark Energy? Is it the Cosmological constant? Interestingly enough, current cosmological observations are consistent with it being the L term blunder in GR!!!

  • Number count of clusters vs. redshift (dN/dz)Near future : SZ Cluster surveys (SPT,ACT) CMB Task force report 2005

  • Mildly Perturbed universe at z=1100Present universe at z=0Gravitational Instability Cosmic matter content

  • SLOAN DIGITAL SKY SURVEY (SDSS)Few Gpc.Present distribution of matter

  • One little telltale bump !! A small excess in correlation at 150 Mpc.!SDSS survey(astro-ph/0501171) (Einsentein et al. 2005)

  • 2-point correlation of density contrast Acoustic Baryon oscillations in the matter correlation function !! The same CMB oscillations at low redshifts !!!SDSS survey(astro-ph/0501171)

    Undeniable proof ofGravitational instability mechanism for structure formation (from adiabatic initial perturbations) !!!

  • Ripples in the different constituents

  • Whats the next frontier ?

  • Thompson scattering at redshift z=1100 (surface of last scattering) generates a linear polarization pattern in the CMB sky.Two polarization modes E&B Four CMB spectra : ClTT, ClEE,ClBB,ClTE Density (scalar) perturbations generate only E mode polarization. E-mode 5 --10 K Gravitational waves generate both the modes in comparable amounts . B-mode 0.05 0.1 KB-mode measures cosmic gravity wave background.CMB Polarization

  • Thompson scattering of the CMB anisotropy quadrupole at the surface of last scattering generates a linear polarization pattern in the CMB.(Fig:Hu & White , 97)

  • E modes(Gradient)B modes(Curl)

  • Polarization: E modes and B modesE Modes: Gradient of the polarization Produced by both scalar andtensor modes Have been detected

    B Modes: Curl of the polarization Produced only by tensor modes ...or gravitational lensing ...or foregrounds ...or systematics Expected from inflation Have not been detected

    A detection of primordial sourced B modes would provideimportant evidence for, and determine the energy scale of Inflation EB

    Out of phase location of peaks in EE, TE relative to TT implies adiabatic initial perturbations !!! Proof of inflation !Null BB: Awaiting direct signature of tensor perturbations, a.k.a. cosmic gravity waves !!! Current status of CMB Spectra
