CMB Estimation of Cosmological Parameters |
||

Accurate, high resolution measurement of the CMB anisotropies provides a means to a precise estimate of many cosmological parameters and crucial tests of many cosmological models. The precision and importance of these parameters makes CMB observations central to cosmology and extra galactic astrophysics.
