Trouble for cluster parameter estimation from blind SZ surveys?Feb 24 2004May 22 2005(Abriged version) The Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (SZ) effect of galaxy clusters is a tool to measure three quantities: Compton parameter, electron temperature, and cluster peculiar velocity. However, a major problem is non-removed contamination by astrophysical ... More
Observational constraint on the fourth derivative of the inflaton potentialOct 07 2002We consider the flow-equations for the 3 slow-roll parameters n_S (scalar spectral index), r (tensor to scalar ratio), and dn_S/dlnk (running of the spectral index). We show that the combination of these flow-equations with the observational bounds from ... More
