Cosmological cross-correlations and nearest neighbor distributions

Kavli Affiliate: Tom Abel | First 5 Authors: Arka Banerjee, Tom Abel, , , | Summary: Cross-correlations between datasets are used in many different contexts in cosmological analyses. Recently, $k$-Nearest Neighbor Cumulative Distribution Functions ($k{rm NN}$-${rm CDF}$) were shown to be sensitive probes of cosmological (auto) clustering. In this paper, we extend the framework of […]

Optimizing accuracy and efficacy in data-driven materials discovery for the solar production of hydrogen

Kavli Affiliate: Hector D. Abruna | First 5 Authors: Yihuang Xiong, Quinn T. Campbell, Julian Fanghanel, Catherine K. Badding, Huaiyu Wang | Summary: The production of hydrogen fuels, via water splitting, is of practical relevance for meeting global energy needs and mitigating the environmental consequences of fossil-fuel-based transportation. Water photoelectrolysis has been proposed as a […]

Superresolution Reconstruction of Severely Undersampled Point-spread Functions Using Point-source Stacking and Deconvolution

Kavli Affiliate: James Bock | First 5 Authors: Teresa Symons, Michael Zemcov, James Bock, Yun-Ting Cheng, Brendan Crill | Summary: Point-spread function (PSF) estimation in spatially undersampled images is challenging because large pixels average fine-scale spatial information. This is problematic when fine-resolution details are necessary, as in optimal photometry where knowledge of the illumination pattern […]

Delensing the CMB with the cosmic infrared background: the impact of foregrounds

Kavli Affiliate: Anthony Challinor | First 5 Authors: Antón Baleato Lizancos, Anthony Challinor, Blake D. Sherwin, Toshiya Namikawa, | Summary: The most promising avenue for detecting primordial gravitational waves from cosmic inflation is through measurements of degree-scale CMB $B$-mode polarisation. This approach must face the challenge posed by gravitational lensing of the CMB, which obscures […]

Constraining reionization with the first measurement of the cross-correlation between the CMB optical-depth fluctuations and the Compton y-map

Kavli Affiliate: Toshiya Namikawa | First 5 Authors: Toshiya Namikawa, Anirban Roy, Blake D. Sherwin, Nicholas Battaglia, David N. Spergel | Summary: We propose a new reionization probe that uses cosmic microwave background (CMB) observations; the cross-correlation between fluctuations in the CMB optical depth which probes the integrated electron density, $deltatau$, and the Compton $y$-map […]
