Dark Energy and the Microwave Background

  • Robert Crittenden
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 720)

Abstract

Evidence for dark energy comes from a wide variety of data. Here I discuss the role the CMB anisotropies have had in framing the dark energy problem. After reviewing the physics of the CMB, I discuss the different methods that are used in determining the dark energy’s density, evolution and clustering properties and the crucial role the microwave background plays in all of these methods.

Keywords

Dark Matter Dark Energy Cosmological Constant Gravitational Potential Dark Energy Model 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
