New Probes of Initial State of Quantum Fluctuations During Inflation
Speaker(s): Eiichiro Komatsu
Abstract: How did inflation actually happen? Precision measurements of statistical properties of primordial fluctuations generated during inflation offer a direct probe of the physics of inflation. When we calculate statistical properties of primordial fluctuations generated during inflation, we usually assum... read more

Bullet Cluster: A Challenge to Lambda-CDM Cosmology
Speaker(s): Eiichiro Komatsu
Abstract: We show that the existence of the bullet cluster, 1E0657-56, is incompatible with the prediction of the standard Lambda CDM cosmology. The probability of finding the large infall velocity (3000 km/s) necessary for explaining the X-ray and weak lensing data of 1E0657-56 is between 3.3x10^{-11} ... read more

The 7-year WMAP Observations: Cosmological Interpretation
Speaker(s): Eiichiro Komatsu
Abstract: We have announced the results from 7 years of observations of the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) on January 26. In this talk we will present the cosmological interpretation of the WMAP 7-year data, including the detection of primordial helium, images of polarization of microwave backgro... read more

The Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect as a probe of violent cluster mergers
Speaker(s): Eiichiro Komatsu
Abstract: In 2001 we made an unexpected discovery of a very bright SZ spot toward the X-ray luminous cluster RXJ1347-1145, which was significantly displaced from the center of the cluster's gravitational potential. One of the possible interpretations is that this spot is a signature of a violent merger in thi... read more
