Simulations

I have been creating virtual cosmological skies consisting of the Cosmic Microwave Background, galaxy clusters and point sources (active galactic nuclei and dusty galaxies that are too small to cover even a pixel on my maps). These will be used for testing observational strategies using a virtual telescope and receiver, as well as for exploring the various properties of the maps with different input physics. I’m also doing simulations of the atmosphere at microwave frequencies. See “Statistics of the Sunyaev-Zel’dovich Effect power spectrum on arXiv.
