Dark Energy and Euclid
Presented by Andy Taylor
University of Edinburgh

Thursday, February 14, 2013
4:00 P.M. in 169-336

ESA’s Euclid dark energy mission is due to launch in 2020. In this talk I will describe some of the dark energy science which Euclid aims to carry out and how this has driven the design of the satellite and its surveys. I will discuss some of the issues that the stringent requirements of dark energy science has set on the analysis of the data, focusing on Euclid’s weak lensing signal, and how these are being addressed. Finally, I will discuss why we may need to generate a huge ensemble of simulated Euclid surveys to interpret the data and ways we may be able to alleviate this problem.
