Upcoming SeminarS 

11th Dec: Jose Carlos Fonseca  (U. Western Cape) - Probing the Universe with line intensity mapping
FCUL, C6.2.51 at 11:00

Intensity mapping is a novel technique to probe the distribution of matter in the universe. It has been very well studied in the context of HI 21cm emission for the SKA but not for other galaxy emission lines. The use of multitracers of the underlying dark matter distribution has proven to be a powerful tool to beat cosmic variance in measuring effects in the tracers power spectrum. I will discuss these methods and techniques as well as my work with Lyman-alpha intensity mapping.
