Radio intensity mapping as a new cosmological tool

Start Date
End Date
An RAS Specialist Discussion Meeting organised by Professor Ian Browne (University of Manchester)* and Dr Filipe Abdalla (UCL)
* Contact: Mapping the integrated emission from redshifted neutral hydrogen is a new and completely independent way to measure baryon acoustic oscillations in the nearby universe. This technique can achieve powerful statistical constraints with relatively few data. New special purpose instruments are being proposed and will be built in the next few years.
The meeting will include discussion of the theory behind the method, description of new instruments and how the use of the compact core of SKA might revolutionize the subject.Programme available at
Tea and coffee will be available from 10:00 and again after the meeting at 15:30.
