Applied Physics/Physics Colloquium presents Pixels to Physics: The Promise and Challenges of Survey Cosmology

Topic: 
Pixels to Physics: The Promise and Challenges of Survey Cosmology
Tuesday, March 5, 2019 - 4:15pm
Venue: 
Hewlett 201
Speaker: 
Hiranya Peiris (University College and Oskar Klein Centre for Cosmoparticle Physics)
Abstract / Description: 

We are entering a transformative period in observational cosmology. Large cosmological surveys starting in 2019 promise to solve key problems in cosmology — but only if we develop new approaches for handling the volume and complexity of the data. Extracting robust cosmological information from these surveys is a major challenge that will require development and validation of analysis methods at each step of the chain from raw pixels to cosmology. I will comment on some of the experimental and methodological innovations that are needed to realize the promise of upcoming surveys.
