CMB Projects at MPA

MPA is carrying out research in a variety of CMB-related areas. Among them are the analysis of COBE-DMR data, the Sunyaev-Zeldovich effect by galaxy clusters, and gravitational lensing effects.

MPA is also involved in the development of the HEALPix software package for synthesising, manipulating and analysing full-sky maps of the cosmic microwave background.

In addition, MPA is collaborating in the Planck project. The tasks of the MPA Planck group are described here.
