Astro Seminar

The SkyPy Project

Speaker: Luisa Fonseca de la Bella (Manchester)
Date: Wednesday 23 September 2020
Time: 15:00
Venue: Zoom

Until recently observational cosmology and extra-galactic observations have been limited primarily by data access. Looking forward though, this is changing. With ever-increasing high-quality archives and the flood of data we expect to see in the coming years (with LSST, Euclid, DESI, WFRIST etc) the rate-limiting step is access to methods rather than access to data. SkyPy is therefore envisioned to be a collaboration built around methods. The vision for SkyPy is to build an open-source off-project high-quality python package that will contain the functionality needed to make end-to-end simulations that can enable both Forward Modelling and Machine Learning methods. Some extra information on unequal-time matter power spectrum and the exact implementation of the angular correlation functions at all angular scales.
