National Aeronautics and Space Administration.]. Abstract: We present theoretical and observational studies of non-Gaussian fluctuations in CMB, by using the angular bispectrum and trispectrum.

We predict the primary angular bispectrum from inflation, and forecast how well we can measure the primordial non-Gaussian signal. In addition to that, secondary anisotropy sources in the low-redshift universe also produce non-Gaussianity, so do Cited by: Weak gravitational lensing has several important effects on the cosmic microwave background (CMB): it changes the CMB power spectra, induces non-Gaussianities, and generates a B-mode polarization.

We describe some simple geometric properties of microwave background temperature anisotropies whose expectation values can be derived in cases where the random field of temperature fluctuations is not necessarily a gaussian random field. We explain how these properties may be useful for discriminating between gaussian and non-gaussian : P.

() LL [77] by: 1. We review in a pedagogical way the present status of the impact of non-Gaussianity (NG) on the cosmic microwave background (CMB) anisotropies.

We first show how to set the initial conditions at second order for the CMB anisotropies when some primordial NG is present.

However, there are many sources of NG in CMB anisotropies, beyond the primordial one, which can contaminate the primordial by: Likelihood-ratio ranking of gravitational-wave candidates in a non-Gaussian background Rahul Biswas,1 Patrick R.

The gravitational evolution of primordial fluctuations introduces non-Gaussian correlations in the distribution of matter with a non-Gaussianity parameter f NL 4 of order unity, dwarfing those predicted by SFSR inflation (f NL ≈ 10 −2).

Current limits constrain f NL to be. Motivated by the fact that cosmological perturbations of inflationary quantum origin were born Gaussian, the search for non-Gaussianities in the cosmic microwave background (CMB) anisotropies is considered as the privileged probe of nonlinear physics in the early universe.

Cosmic strings are active sources of gravitational perturbations and incessantly produce non-Gaussian distortions in the by: This section alone justifies having the book on a library shelf.

The source of fluctuations to input into the cosmic structure formation problem is likely to be found in early universe physics.

We want to measure the CMB [and large-scale structure (LSS)] response to these initial fluctuations. The goal is the lofty one of peering into the physical mechanism by. Then we describe the non-Gaussian nature of density fluctuations generated by the nonlinear gravitational evolution of the primordial Gaussian field in Section 3.

Next we discuss the spatial biasing of galaxies relative to the underlying dark matter distribution in Section 4.

Monitoring Nonlinear and Non-Gaussian Processes Using Gaussian Mixture Model Based Weighted Kernel Independent Component Analysis Lianfang Cai, Xuemin Tian, and Sheng Chen, Fellow, IEEE Abstract—Kernel independent component analysis (KICA) is widely regarded as an effective approach for nonlinear and non-Gaussian process monitoring.

There is a broad class of astrophysical sources that produce detectable, transient, gravitational waves. Some searches for transient gravitational waves are tailored to known features of these sources. Other searches make few assumptions about the sources. Typically Author: Rahul Biswas, Patrick R.

This book lays out the scientific goals to be addressed by the next-generation ground-based cosmic microwave background experiment, CMB-S4, envisioned to consist of dedicated telescopes at the. However, a number of second order effects due to quantum gravitational fluctuations could yield diverging and distinct predictions, including the IR regulation from ξ, the Renormalization Group (RG) running of G, and n-point functions, which should be testable in the near future with increasingly-accurate measurements.

Therefore, in contrast Cited by: 3. These effects are not captured by equation which is an 'instant decoupling' approximation. To study Silk damping one has to solve the perturbed Boltzmann equation. If there is a primordial background of gravitational waves, e.g., from inflation, this also leads to temperature fluctuations via an integrated Sachs–Wolfe effect given by.
